Ariadne


'Here, Ariadne takes centre stage in a lyrical, insightful re-telling that explores her motivations and emotions and the grievances caused by grumpy, cold-hearted gods and warm-blooded men, who are equally vengeful and self-interested - Daily Mail 'The story is well known, of course, but Saint tells it skilfully and, like Miller and Haynes, gives a twist to familiar myth by offering the perspective of women characters' - The Sunday Times As Princesses of Crete and daughters of the fearsome King Minos, Ariadne and her sister Phaedra grow up hearing the hoofbeats and bellows of the Minotaur echo from the Labyrinth beneath the palace. The Minotaur - Minos's greatest shame and Ariadne's brother - demands blood every year. When Theseus, Prince of Athens, arrives in Crete as a sacrifice to the beast, Ariadne falls in love with him. But helping Theseus kill the monster means betraying her family and country, and Ariadne knows only too well that in a world ruled by mercurial gods - drawing their attention can cost you everything. In a world where women are nothing more than the pawns of powerful men, will Ariadne's decision to betray Crete for Theseus ensure her happy ending? Or will she find herself sacrificed for her lover's ambition? ARIADNE gives a voice to the forgotten women of one of the most famous Greek myths, and speaks to their strength in the face of angry, petulant Gods. Beautifully written and completely immersive, this is an exceptional debut novel.

Ariadna


Jenifer Saintovej sa podarilo očarujúco prerozprávať príbeh starogréckeho mýtu o Theseovi a Minotaurovi. Ariadna a jej sestra Phaedra sú dcéry hrôzostrašného kráľa Minosa. Počas svojho dospievania počúvajú ozvenu Minotaurových kopýt v Labyrinte pod palácom. Minotaurus si každoročne žiada obetu v podobe mladíka alebo devy z Atén. Ariadna je nádherne vyrozprávaný príbeh ženy, ktorá trpí osudom väčšiny žien, čo prežívajú útrapy s egoistickými mužmi. Ariadna je strhujúci príbeh o láske a strate.

Elektra


Elektra, Klytaimnestra, Kassandra. Tri silné ženy v osídlach dávnej kliatby. Ktorej z nich sa podarí prerušiť desivý kolobeh násilia a pomsty? Mykénska princezná Elektra túžobne očakáva návrat svojho otca Agamemnóna, hlavného veliteľa achájskych vojsk, z trójskej vojny. Len pri ňom cítila, čo je to rodičovská láska a náklonnosť. Odkedy však otec odišiel na čele veľkého loďstva oslobodiť unesenú spartskú kráľovnú Helenu, trpí mladučká Elektra ústrkmi a nevšímavosťou svojej matky. Klytaimnestra spočiatku manžela vrúcne milovala, ale keď Agamemnón obetoval najstaršiu dcéru Ifigeneiu bohom, aby grécke vojsko bezpečne odplávalo k trójskym brehom, znenávidela ho a dlhých desať rokov v sebe živila a rozdúchavala túžbu po pomste. Agamemnón sa konečne vracia ako oslavovaný hrdina a víťaz. Súčasťou jeho koristi je aj trójska kňažka Kassandra, schopná predvídať budúcnosť. Vo svojich víziách videla horiacu Tróju a teraz zase vidí temné mračná nad Mykénami. Osudy troch neobyčajných žien – Elektry, Klytaimnestry a Kassandry – sú nerozlučne späté. Elektra odmieta byť hračkou v rukách nevyspytateľného osudu a chce o sebe rozhodovať sama. Naráža však na začarovaný kruh násilia a pomsty, opakujúci sa v histórii atreovského rodu.
