For the week of April 2 - 8, 2012
The holiday edition of what’s new features a summary of what I like to call the blog style posts at Mythography. Here they are:
I started the week with a quote from a favorite Roman writer. In Mything Quotes - Ovid, I share a snippet from the Amores, and let’s just say, love was a battlefield, even in the ancient world.
Ever wanted to know more about some of the less famous names from Homer’s epic works? If so, then Twinkle, Little Stars - Minor Figures from the Odyssey offers a glimpse into some of these fascinating background characters.
In Art - Dionysos with Maenads, I take a look at an ancient work of art that celebrates the god of wine and his women. The song is of course optional.
I figured the best way to follow an article about Dionysos in art was with an exploration of some of his attributes in Mythology - Symbols of Dionysos.
A lovely painting by Nineteenth century artist Dante Gabriel Rossetti is the focus of Art - Venus Verticordia.
And finally, we finish the week with yet another article devoted to the goddess of love in Mythology - Symbols of Aphrodite.
