Mini Myth: Orpheus, Eurydice, & the Importance of Following Underworld Instructions Let's Talk About Myths, Baby! A Greek & Roman Mythology Podcast

    • Arts

Today's Mini Myth continues on with our October theme, bringing you deep into the Underworld with the oh-so-famous story of Orpheus and Eurydice. There's tragic death, trips to the Underworld, and repeat tragic deaths... A general mythology warning: far too many Greek myths involve assaulting women. I'm sorry, that's just the way it is. Given it's fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I'm not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thing.
