My Thoughts on “Heroes” by Stephen Fry

Would you like to find out more about Atalanta and The Calydonian Boar Hunt? What about the story of Jason & the Argonauts, and their quest for the Golden Fleece? Are you interested in discovering more about Theseus and the Minotaur? What if I told you there was a book which looked at all of these stories, and so many more?

I recently finished reading “Heroes” by Stephen Fry, Fry’s second book on Greek Mythology and absolutely loved it!

My Thoughts on Mythos

Mythos: The Greek Mythos Retold is a book about Greek Mythology, written by Stephen Fry. The book centralises around the Gods of Ancient Greece, their relationship with both their parents, The Titans, and with humans, of which they created.

In today’s blog, we are going to be taking a look at some of my thoughts about Mythos and it’s connection to Greek Cosmology.
