あらすじ・解説

Through ancient art, evocative myth, exciting archaeological revelations and philosophical explorations Bettany Hughes shows why this immortal goddess endures through to the 21st century and what her journey through time reveals about what matters to us as humans.  

Charting Venus' origins in powerful ancient deities, Bettany demonstrates that Venus is far more complex than first meets the eye. Beginning in Cyprus, the goddess' mythical birthplace, Bettany decodes Venus' relationship to the Greek goddess Aphrodite and, in turn, Aphrodite's mixed-up origins both as a Cypriot spirit of fertility and procreation - but also as a descendant of the prehistoric war goddesses of the Near and Middle East, Ishtar, Inanna and Astarte. 

On a voyage of discovery to reveal the truth behind Venus, Hughes reveals how this mythological figure is so much more than nudity, romance and sex. 

It is the both the remarkable story of one of antiquity's most potent forces and the story of human desire - how it transforms who we are and how we behave.

Short take on an intriguing topic

This foray into Aphrodite was over so soon. This is a beautiful piece and so well researched and written. I just wish there were more. Would love a novelized retelling, and/or more examination/exploration.

This topic is altogether intriguing.

Lovely listening to this British scholar read her own work, and it inspired and informed me to consider this Goddess from a new perspective and to correlate to the fate of the feminine in some ways, and wishing for a resurrection of her might in the spirit of the early times when she was intrinsic and marvelous. Maybe more examples and commentary. Lovely images in the PDF.

Do add this to your list, and it’s not long. You can spend the morning with it.

Short but sweet

Lovely little book. Fascinating walk through the history of both Venus/Aphrodite, and more general, women in prehistory.
