In her latest book of essays, Haynes gives a new, more feminist, perspective on many of the goddesses of Greek mythology--including major figures like Athene, Hera, Demeter, Hestia, and Aphrodite. She discusses their roles and how society has viewed them throughout history. Haynes asks listeners to examine our more traditional assumptions about these goddesses and how patriarchal structures inspired our notions about them. Her performance highlights the emotional weight of the betrayals and losses these figures experienced. But she balances the more difficult moments with a conversational style that is warm, charming, and even funny. The overall effect causes listeners to feel as if they are sitting right there, in person, hanging on every word. K.D.W. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2024]
