We are often introduced to Greek mythology as children. Which is logical, as stories about gods, goddesses, heroes and sphinges (the plural of ‘sphinx’) have enchanted children for hundreds of years. However, you might have missed some of the more gruesome parts of these stories, such as when Heracles murdered his own children or what happened between Periander and his dead wife Melissa.

Together in this class we have some fun visiting some of the grisly stories from Greek mythology. The class will also involve looking at how these stories were preserved in the art and literature from Ancient Greece. We’ll end the class examining and discussing a poem that describes a lovely tale of cannibalism.
