Misogyny in the Myths (and Theseus)

Seven Years Ago on Facebook, I asked this question, and I feel like it summarizes my entire BRAND as Amalia Carosella:"How much misogyny do we read back into the myths because we're expecting it to be there, or even assuming that it is the only possible interpretation? For Classical Athens, yes, there certainly was a good bit of it -- but these stories predate Classical Athens. Is it possible the

Daughter of a Thousand Years by Amalia Carosella
"I don't have the mental space right now to properly review this, but I loved it. I picked it up at a time that I needed this story in my life and I'm so glad it exists and that I got to own and read it. "
By Helen's Hand by Amalia Carosella
"A Greek tragedy if there ever was one. This book picks up where it left off. Helen is taken from Athens and returned to Sparta by her brothers. The drama she tried so hard to avoid in the first book finally begins. It seems like there was no fighting" Read more of this review »
By Helen's Hand by Amalia Carosella

“Perhaps Zeus was king, but I was Spartan, a princess twice over, and queen of Athens besides. I knew my duty. And I would rule my own fate.”
Amalia Carosella, Helen of Sparta

“I did not want to worship gods as cruel as this—gods cruel enough to rape my mother after she objected to being deceived, or willing to waste the lives of hundreds, perhaps thousands of men in a useless war. I did not want to believe we could not be free.”
Amalia Carosella, Helen of Sparta

“Stay with me?” His fingers wound into my hair, and his arm tightened around me. “Always.”
Amalia Carosella, Helen of Sparta

Topics Mentioning This Author

“And as long as she lives, as long as she thinks of me with fondness and the memory of our life together brings her comfort, I will honor her for it. I will love her above all else in this world and the next. And there is nothing you can do to stop it”
Amalia Dillin, Forged by Fate

“Perhaps Zeus was king, but I was Spartan, a princess twice over, and queen of Athens besides. I knew my duty. And I would rule my own fate.”
Amalia Carosella, Helen of Sparta
