Stone Blind Summary
“Stone Blind” is a good book that you can read online or download to read it later. They will fear you and flee you and call you a monster. The only mortal in a family of gods, Medusa is the youngest of the Gorgon sisters. Unlike her siblings, Medusa grows older, experiences change, feels weakness. Her mortal lifespan gives her an urgency that her family will never know. When the sea god Poseidon assaults Medusa in Athene’s temple, the goddess is enraged. Furious by the violation of her sacred space, Athene takes revenge—on the young woman. Punished for Poseidon’s actions, Medusa is forever transformed. Writhing snakes replace her hair and her gaze will turn any living creature to stone. Cursed with the power to destroy all she loves with one look, Medusa condemns herself to a life of solitude. Until Perseus embarks upon a fateful quest to fetch the head of a Gorgon . . . In Stone Blind, classicist and comedian Natalie Haynes turns our understanding of this legendary myth on its head, bringing empathy and nuance to one of the earliest stories in which a woman—injured by a powerful man—is blamed, punished, and monstered for the assault. Delving into the origins of this mythic tale, Haynes revitalizes and reconstructs Medusa’s story with her passion and fierce wit, offering a timely retelling of this classic myth that speaks to us today.
Brief Summary Stone Blind by Haynes Natalie
It’s the story of Medusa, the mortal daughter of two sea gods. She is the sister of two immortals. Collectively the three are called Gorgons; however, since Medusa is mortal, she has little power, and her sisters are quite protective of her. She’s also quite beautiful. Eventually when they are distracted, Medusa is raped by the great sea God Poseidon in Athena’s temple. Angered at the desecration of her temple, Athena punishes Medusa, the victim, by turning her beautiful hair into a writhing mass of live snakes and her eyes into deadly weapons; ever after anyone who looks into those eyes immediately turns to stone.It’s also the story of Perseus, the hapless mortal son of the great God Zeus, and his inept quest to find Medusa and bring back her head to a malevolent king to prevent him marrying Perseus’s mother. Perseus is helped in his pursuit by his father indirectly through repeated interventions by Athena and Hermes.
