Four classical Greek myths retold with unexpected twists by an East German dissident. Franz Fühmann's subversive retellings of four Greek legends were first published in East Germany in 1980. In them, Fühmann plumbs the ancient tales' depths and makes them his own. Attuned to conflict and paradox, he sheds light on the complexities of sex and love, art and beauty, politics and power.
