Divine Might: Goddesses in Greek Myth product reviews

In Divine Might, Natalie Haynes turns her focus to the goddesses of Olympus. Here we meet Athene, who sprang fully formed from her father's brow (giving Zeus a killer headache in the process), goddess of war, guardian of the city named for her, and provider of wise counsel.

Here, too, is Aphrodite, born of the foam (or, some sources say, sperm released from a castrated Titan's testicles), the most beautiful of all the Olympian goddesses. dispensing desire and inspired longing - but with a nasty line in brutal punishment of those who displeased her.

And then there is Hera, Zeus's long-suffering wife, whose jealousy of his repeated dalliances with mortals, with nymphs, with other goddesses, led her to wreak elaborate and often painful revenge on those she felt had wronged her. Well, wouldn't you?

We also meet Demeter, goddess of the harvest and mother of the hapless Persephone; Artemis, the huntress, virgin goddess of childbirth (Greek myth is full of confusion); the Muses, all nine of them; wide-bosomed Gaia, the earth goddess; and Hestia, goddess of domesticity but also of sacrificial fire.
