For the week of March 19 - 25, 2012
Here is a recap of what I am calling the blog style posts here at Mythography:
In Story of the Selkie, I muse about some compelling chapters from the book The Orphan’s Tales: In The Night Garden.
The this theme is continued in The Satyr and the Selkie, where I explore this pair of creatures from myth and folklore.
Since Spring arrived this week, I was inspired by the beautiful weather to include some posts that celebrate this much anticipated season.
I started with Botticelli’s masterpiece, Primavera, which is a painting that tells a story of Spring with characters from Classical myth.
Then, I looked to an ancient Roman poet for a timeless homage to the season in Horace’s Ode to Spring.
After that, I explored a phrase with a mythological background - Halcyon Days.
And to conclude the week, I wrote about finding beauty in the beast in Medusa - A Beautiful Monster.
In addition to keeping up with my blog style posts this week, here’s what I’ve been working on for the site:
I added an Index of Names. This should hopefully help to make some of the articles about specific figures from myth easier to find.
And speaking of articles, I am also including some much needed navigation to these pages. It’s a work in progress, so thank you for your patience.
