Easy the Descent by Zdenka

'Bones are so heavy. She had forgotten. They seem to drag her down to the earth.' A thought-provoking vignette, which gives Eurydice agency and draws parallels with Persephone's fate (Orpheus & Eurydice)

[Added 09/08/2014; Character Piece; 1000-2500; Classical mythology; Characters: Eurydice, Orpheus, Hades, Persephone]

Persephone Lied by Spuffyduds

'Do you know what swineherds talk about? / Swine.' An amusing take on the Persephone myth. Helen Saito's expressive reading really brings out Persephone's emotions and the poem's humour

[Added 29/08/2013; Poetry; <1000; Classical mythology; Characters: Persephone, Hades, Demeter]

Persephone: Redux by Nightengale

'Do not tell me that you've been off gallivanting again with that Hades figure, Persephone, do not tell it me!' Neat revisioning of the Persephone story

[Added 03/01/2007; Romance/Erotica; 1000-2500; Classical mythology; Characters: Persephone, Arion, Demeter, Hermes, Hades]
