Divine Might: Goddesses in Greek Myth | Natalie Haynes

Regular price £10.99

Natalie Haynes, author of the bestselling Pandora's Jar, returns to the world of Greek myth with her new book, Divine Might. Inside we meet Athene, who sprang fully formed from her father's head: goddess of war and wisdom, guardian of Athens. We run with Artemis, goddess of hunting and protector of young girls (apart from those she decides she wants as a sacrifice). There's the queen of all the Olympian gods: Hera, Zeus's long-suffering wife, whose jealousy of his dalliances with mortals, nymphs and goddesses leads her to wreak claborate, vicious revenge on those who have wronged her.

 

These goddesses - and their divine sisters, Demeter, Hestia, the Muses and the Furies - are as mighty, revered and destructive as their male counterparts. Isn't it time we looked beyond the columns of a ruined temple to the awesome power within?
