The Voyage of Argo
Illustrated by Daniel Egnéus
Introduced by Lawrence Norfolk
Translated by E. V. Rieu
The poetic account of Jason’s quest for the golden fleece, written in the 3rd century BC and now an inspiration for artist Daniel Egnéus.
The golden fleece guarded by a serpent; the fiery bulls yoked to a plough; the warriors sprung from a serpent’s teeth; a sorceress tormented by love ... The myth of Jason and the Argonauts has woven itself through Western culture, but nowhere is it told with more artistry than in the poem composed by Apollonius of Rhodes in the 3rd century BC: the Argonautica.
