She Speaks: The Women of Greek Myths in Their Own Words

Honor Cargill-Martin

In She Speaks, passionate classicist Honor Cargill-Martin redresses this imbalance by retelling eight classic Greek myths, this time from an all-female perspective.

Written in first-person, we hear from the astute sorceress Medea and her pivotal role in the quest for the Golden Fleece; discover the contributions of Cretan princess Ariadne in the slaying of the Minotaur; witness the strength and resilience of Atalanta, Circe, Helen of Troy, and many other women who have been previously overshadowed by their male counterparts.

With her meticulous research and insightful storytelling, readers will be mesmerised as Honor resurrects these voices, breathes new life into well-loved stories, and drags the Classics into the modern world.

– Eight classic Greek myths, specially retold for young feminists
