Description: Medusa, the Gorgon, who turns those who gaze upon her to stone, is one of the most popular and enduring figures of Greek mythology. Long after many other figures from Greek myth have been forgotten, she continues to live in popular culture. In this fascinating study of the legend of Medusa, Stephen R. Wilk begins by refamiliarizing readers with the story through ancient authors and classical artwork, then rooks at the interpretations that have been given of the meaning of the myth through the years. Through careful examinations of astronomical phenomena and evidence of the use of gorgoneion, the Face of the Gorgon, on shields and on roofing tires from around the world, Wilk offers startling new and unique interpretations of the myth and meaning of Medusa. Finally, Wilk explores the history of the Gorgon since Classical times, culminating in the modern use of Medusa as a symbol of Female Rage and Female Creativity.
