I first became interested in the stories of ancient Greece when I was seven years old. I remember my second grade teacher reading our class both a section of the Iliad and the story of Cupid and Psyche. I recall sitting on the floor listening intently as she read from an old red book filled with the folklore of many lands. The stories captured my heart and filled my mind with wonder. I felt as though I had been reunited with the memories of a far distant past.
I would like to bestow many thanks upon Phyllis LaSalle Wiegand, who taught me at the Walt Disney Elementary School in Levittown, Pennsylvania, for deciding to read to me from her magical red book one day back in 1969.
Disclaimer: I would like to say that I have based my story on the life of Medea on the accounts given by Robert Graves and The Meridian Handbook of Classical Mythology. Both these sources offer a slightly different perspective on the story from the more familiar version given by Euripides. I have also used Edith Hamilton's Book of Mythology as a reference guide.
All images were taken from public domain web sites. I have done my best to credit all artists and will add any new information as it comes along. If you pass your mouse over the image I have listed the artist's name, the title of the painting and when available the year it was painted.
Please pay a visit to the following sites. I have found them to be most enjoyable and I am sure you will feel the same.
