Medusa

Solving the Mystery of the Gorgon

Stephen R Wilk

Medusa presents a new and different look at the myth of Perseus and Medusa and its interpretation. Starting with a look at the nature of myths and a recounting of the story, the book looks at the myth and the explanations which have arisen to explain it. New interpretations are suggested which are rooted in astronomy, psychology, art and architecture. The role of the gorgon in the modern world is examined, showing that the myth of Medusa is very much alive.
