About the event

Professor Esther Eidinow, University of Bristol.

Why do Greek myths so rarely develop extensive narratives about winds, given that the relationship between human beings and winds was so variously important? This paper examines evidence for the nature of the winds and for the relations between winds and mortals in ancient Greek culture, drawing attention to the local nature of responses to the winds, and the process of ‘selective personification’.
