Greek Gods and Creatures

Jonathan Vince

If you told an ancient Greek you were going to buy some Nike shoes on Amazon while listening to music on Pandora, he’d stare at you like you were some nine-headed monster. According to him, Hermes wears the shoes, Pandora’s the reason he’s miserable, and Amazons are the tall warrior women who will soon be arriving to arrest you for speaking nonsense. Don’t be that person!

When the Animals Talk

Nina Zippay

When the Animals Talk is a literary adventure and exploration of stories in which the authors have chosen to write from the perspective of the animal kingdom. We examine why the authors might have chosen animals to do their bidding, as we learn about literary devices such as symbolism and metaphors, both intended and fortuitously inadvertent.
