The Golden Fleece and Seven Days in New Crete
Robert GravesISBN: 1857546539;
Concerns with matriarchal deities and the creative reinterpretation of mythology infuse these works from a celebrated British author. In The Golden Fleece , Graves liberates the tale of Jason and the Argonauts from its status as a children's story and reconstitutes it as a fully fledged epic. Seven Days in New Crete is set in a future in which the New Cretans have abandoned 20th-century technology in favor of a magical, matriarchal society where wars are conveniently fought between breakfast and tea and casualties can be swiftly reborn.
