I am working on getting this poem by Ovid, ‘Arethusa,’ his retelling of the Greek myth, illustrated into some form of a publication, whether in digital or material form. I am writing this post mainly for myself, to get my thoughts down and organized, so please forgive if it seems boring!
The myth of her transformation begins when she came across a clear stream and began bathing, not knowing it was the river god Alpheus. He fell in lust. After a long chase, she prayed to her goddess to ask for protection. Artemis hid her in a cloud, but Alpheus was persistent. She began to perspire profusely from fear, and soon transformed into a stream. Artemis then broke theground allowing Arethusa another attempt to flee.
