Greek Myths & subversive history

View Linked Books

Greek mythology & versions of history permeate western philosophy and cultural understandings. It is indeed true that we have much to learn from this classical civilization - but what we're usually taught leaves a great deal out! So, here are some histories with the women back in telling, translations of old classics by women, books that seek new kinds of relevance for old myths and feminist retellings...

We start with the nonfiction at the top, novels in the middle and some great reads for younger classics fans! And if you're after myths, mythology & folkore beyond the Greeks, we have this wee list!
