The Bull from the Sea reconstructs the legend of Theseus, the valiant youth who slew the Minotaur, became king, and brought prosperity to Attica. Chief among his heroic exploits is the seduction of Hippolyta, the Queen of the Amazons, who irrevocably brought about both his greatest joy and his tragic destiny.
Renault did it again! She took an ancient Greek hero and turned him into a person you wish to invite to your home.ReplyDelete
What I really enjoy is the fact that Renault recreates the world that her people live in almost perfectly. Nobody can read this book and place the heroes to a different era or place that ancient Greece.
