CLASSIC (MYTH OF ORPHEUS)
Topic: CLASSIC (MYTH OF ORPHEUS)
How does the modern recreation of the myth of pygmalion represent the human search for happiness against all the odds?
(the theme of Orpheus engages with the question of artistic creation/representation and the pursuit of love, happiness and fulfilment. how does Williams deal with these issues within his twentieth-century setting in the ‘deep south’ of the U.S.)
need some quotes from both books (which are one from Ovid’s Orpheus and one from William’s Orpheus Descending)
