Cum grano salis.

Pardon the pun.

Salve,

This sub-site houses a tangential exploration of the Μέδουσα myth.

Please note these entries are not chronologically-based — so that you might read this like a book, from front to back. (Consider this an ill-written preface.)

When I elaborate on a theme or toy with a non sequitur, I place the post where I feel it belongs in the general flow of the narrative. ¹

This is by no means a scholarly exploration — I’m just fascinated by the sensual nature of the myth.

& Greek mythology is nothing if not sexual, bawdy, irreverent, violent, teeming with blood, seeping effluvium.

Unlike the rest of my blog, most of the images featured here are not my own. Photographers are duly credited.

Thanks to Dr. Beth Harrison for piquing my interest in this subject.
