This approach will make mythology interesting for those who have already read too many standard mythology books and may make remembering the myths easier as it ties them to words the reader may already know. By Jove begins a Season of Violent Women, a series of week long takeovers of The Gallery on the Corner in Battersea, with Margaret of Anjou, a new take on Shakespeare’s She-Wolf of France. LoveArts, a monthly new writing night featuring music, spoken word, poetry, and drama, comes to the Gallery Café, Bethnal Green, for a six-month season. It was originally “for (or fore) George,” and later appeared as “before George,” according to OED citations. Although Bacchae is another work of Greek tragedy, this production is designed more closely to evoke the ancient oral poets who performed long tales such as the Iliad and Odyssey ; SJ Brady performs the text solo, from memory, focusing on Agave but giving voice to a range of characters and utilising repeated linguistic motifs.

For example, Pandora's box is correctly translated and an explanation given as to when the mistranslation arose and what the real term means.

That said, the 12 labours of Hercules is more a simple, brief retelling of the events rather than an examination of derivatives like many other chapters in the book, which is a shame, in my opinion, because it means that it appeals to a different audience.Jove is the older name the Romans had for the god Jupiter (which derives from an alteration of Jovis pater, father Jove). We think about how myths, legends, and tales from the cultural canon – some familiar, some less so – can speak to audiences in the 21st century.

While beginning to develop a new project, By Jove collaborate with UCL and the Institute of Classical Studies to produce one-off poetry events Homer’s Womenand Weaving Women’s Storiesrespectively.

The narrative form of Greek tragedy deals with the moments of crisis in longer mythic narratives: each play tells a story almost in real-time, with characters forced to confront their own actions or those of others that have, almost always, led to death.It’s a very British expression (as indeed is your haven’t a clue and your reference to I know a man who can, a current advertising slogan from the Automobile Association).
