Aphrodite in relation to female sexuality and procreation 21 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
An excellent academic reference that is of special interest to English Majors studying Greek Mythology. This guide explores the meaning of Aphrodite and its connection to female sexuality, tenderness, procreation and subjectivity. Friedrich explores how the meaning of Aphrodite arose, how it is constituted and how it is motivated. Throughout, Friedrich gives special attention to Homer, the richest and most authoratative and to Sappho, whose poetry explores the sensous aspects of Aphrodite. Friedrich devotes some chapters, particulary chapter four, to contrasting Aphrodite to the other queens of heaven: Hera, Athena and Artemis and with this weaves aspects of virginity, intimacy, wisdom and worriorship together.
