The Pomegranate Seeds
A Classic Greek MythBook - 1995
When Demeter's young daughter, Persephone, is kidnapped by the king of the underworld, the earth-goddess decrees that nothing will grow on Earth until the girl is returned to her. Laura Geringer brings a modern sensibility to her interpretation of Nathaniel Hawthorne's adaptation of the Greek myth about the origins of the seasons. She retells it as the story of a child caught between two adults who compete for her loyalty and affection. Leonid Gore's elegant and evocative paintings evoke the timeless world of myth.
