THIS WEEK: The creation of the seasons as the God of the Underworld takes a Wife. Persephone, Hades, Demeter, and Zeus ... some how Zeus is always in there, isn't he? You'd think he was the King of the Gods, or something! Oh, wait . . . yeah, right.
The Greek myths are the greatest stories ever told, passed down through millennia and inspiring writers and artists as varied as Shakespeare, Michelangelo, James Joyce and Walt Disney. In Stephen Fry’s hands the stories of the titans and gods become a brilliantly entertaining account of ribaldry and revelry, warfare and worship, debauchery, love affairs and life lessons, slayings and suicides, triumphs and tragedies.
