About

Retellings of Greek mythology have become a best-selling genre around the world. Stephen Fry, Madeline Miller, Natalie Haynes, Pat Barker and many other writers have retold the myths of Ancient Greece for modern times. So why does the ancient world resonate so strongly with the present? This question has dominated the research of Julia Kindt, Professor at the Department of Classics and Ancient history at Sydney University. Her latest book is The Trojan Horse and Other Stories: Ten Ancient Creatures that Make us Human. Kate Forsyth is an award-winning author, poet, and storyteller who incorporates myths and fairy tales in her books. Her latest book Psykhe is a retelling of the myth of Eros and Psykhe.

Facilitated by Phil Kafcaloudes.
