My love for Greek myth revived after reading them to Nhim. Difference is now i have Google and can stay up late. And since those characters are all nude, and rather erotic, i have even parent guidance.
Love the story of Hades and Persephone but can’t find any good painting.
Hades’s capture is such a typical genre. It repeats in so many forms, from the Beauty and the Beast to Eric and Christine. It’s so patriarchal and at the border of Stockholm syndrome. Yet it has its own dark, toxic charm that is irresistible. That is: the struggle between masculinity and femininity is also their very attraction.
