What draws us back to Greek mythology time and again in contemporary fiction and beyond? Who are the goddesses obscured by Zeus’ shadow? And why are we supposed to beware of Greeks bearing gifts?

Beloved Australian historical fiction writer Kate Forsyth reimagines the enduring myth of Psyche and Eros in Psykhe from the perspective of the mortal woman at its centre.

Turn back the clock and settle in for some classics with Kate as she exhumes Greek mythology’s underappreciated women, in conversation with playwright Tom Wright.
