Orpheus and Eurydice : A Graphic-Poetic Exploration, Hardback Book

Orpheus and Eurydice : A Graphic-Poetic Exploration Hardback

Part of the Beyond Criticism series


The story of Orpheus's tragic quest into the underworld to rescue his true love Eurydice back from the dead is one that has haunted the western imagination for over 2,000 years through many tellings, re-tellings, appropriations and adaptations. A unique coming together of poetry, art and criticism, Orpheus and Eurydice explores the myth's impact through a graphic-poetic reconstruction of the story.

Including critical reflections from leading thinkers, writers and critics, this is a compelling exploration of the enduring power of this tale.
