Eurydice has a difficult decision to make-choose a brief but perfect love, foretold to end in tragedy, or resign herself to a pleasant partnership that could potentially last forever. Not only does she find herself torn between two men, but also between a friend who would be hurt by one choice and gods who would be infuriated by the other. What's a poor Naiad to do? You may think you know the tale of Orpheus and his lyre, but you've never heard it told like this, from the perspective of the woman who loved him, with an ending that will leave your heart singing.
“The Song of Orpheus” tells the heartbreaking tale of Orpheus, the Greek God of Music, and the nymph Eurydice. Ms. Kitt captures the emotion, both the pleasure of their love and pain of loss, in this wonderful book.
The story is teeming with characters from Greek mythology, both good and bad, who stay true to the history books. Eurydice has the playfulness of a nymph, but also the weaknesses of a woman. She is crafted so well on the page it is almost as if you could reach out and touch her. The songs of the music god are as clever as they are perfect.
In “The Song of Orpheus,” Ms. Kitt shows that death is only the beginning and that true love lasts for eternity. This tragic love story did, however, put me into a depression that lasted for several hours – so be cautious.
