A Cursed Ghost and a Goddess of Vengeance Walk Into a Bar… Seneca’s Thyestes (Part 1)

Let’s Talk About Myths, Baby!

It’s time to return to Seneca and the play whose only woman character is a goddess of vengeance. Tantalus’ cursed grandsons are about to f**k things up. Help keep LTAMB going by subscribing to Liv’s Patreon for bonus content!

CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assault. Given it’s fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I’m not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thing.

Sources: Seneca’s Thyestes, primarily the version translation by Emily Wilson with long passages quoted from the Frank Justus Miller; Hyginus’ Fabulae.
