George Peabody: Cupid and Psyche

Language:
English
Genres:
Fiction & Literature, Childrens Fiction, Historical

Josephine Peabody was an American poet and writer. Josephine's writing style was highly influenced by works of such poets as William Shakespeare, Christopher Marlowe and Robert Browning. Her later works reflected her growing concern about the problems of social injustice. She also wrote poems for children and her own retellings of the ancient myths. Once upon a time in ancient Greece there was a King. The King had three beautiful daughters. The two elder daughters were happily married to noble and reach men, but the youngest one, Psyche, was so beautiful that all the men who tried to conquer her heart seemed unworthy of her. The King didn't know what to do and went to the Oracle who told him that Psyche would not be given to a mortal man and the right place for her was beside some terrifying moster living on a mountain. How will this story end? Read 'Cupid And Psyche' — a retelling of the famous myth, and you will know!
