Rape, Revenge and Transformation: Tereus Through the Ages - 07/12/2019, Roehampton (England)






The story of Tereus preoccupied major authors in classical antiquity. References to it date back to the Homeric poems and the myth was addressed by renowned dramatists, such as Aeschylus, Sophocles and Accius, before being adapted by Ovid. These different versions raise questions about the reconstruction of the myth and representation of women, family violence, and taboos, such as rape and paidophagia
