Recent Comments "A Pomegranate and the Maiden"

A Pomegranate and the Maiden is an interesting retelling of the Demeter and Persephone Myth as told in Homer’s Hymn to Demeter. It is told from multiple points of view; Demeter, Persephone,Hecate,Zeus, Hades and more and from a feminist perspective.I quite enjoyed it and would recommend it anyone who loves Greek Mythology!

I really enjoyed reading this. I love mythology and the Gods and perceiving this myth through their eyes seemed on point. I could really picture each and everyone of them saying those things and acting those plots, I really believe Tamara really capture their personalities.

I enjoyed this book about the same event tha'ts written from many view points. It was well written and holds the readers attention.
