Check out the books “Mythos” and “Heroes” by Stephen Fry. He retells greek mythology really nicely in those books! For example: Aphrodite was born, when Kronos sliced off daddy Uranos’ dick and tossed it into the ocean. and from the frothy, bloody saltwater-semen mess emerged the goddess of love and beauty. Isn’t that wonderful?
That’s not what he wrote that’s just how I re-retold it now
