Feminine Mysteries in the Myth of Orpheus

February 19, 1999 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Friday Talk:

Why did Orpheus lose his bride on the day they were to be married? Are the reasons similar to those which cause failure in relationships today? Orpheus was unwilling to accept this loss, and he became the only mortal in Greek mythology to risk his own life by descending into the underworld to retrieve his beloved. His gift for music rivaled that of the gods, enabling him to charm the King and Queen of Hades into releasing his newly deceased bride. Orpheus was recognized as the most important poet in Greek mythology. This lecture will include images from the myth of Orpheus to illuminate the contemporary problem between men and women, and between the human species and nature.
