✏The Argonauts Book Summary : An intrepid voyage out to the frontiers of the latest thinking about love, language, and family Maggie Nelson's The Argonauts is a genre-bending memoir, a work of "autotheory" offering fresh, fierce, and timely thinking about desire, identity, and the limitations and possibilities of love and language. At its center is a romance: the story of the author's relationship with the artist Harry Dodge. This story, which includes Nelson's account of falling in love with Dodge, who is fluidly gendered, as well as her journey to and through a pregnancy, offers a firsthand account of the complexities and joys of (queer) family-making. Writing in the spirit of public intellectuals such as Susan Sontag and Roland Barthes, Nelson binds her personal experience to a rigorous exploration of what iconic theorists have said about sexuality, gender, and the vexed institutions of marriage and child-rearing. Nelson's insistence on radical individual freedom and the value of caretaking becomes the rallying cry of this thoughtful, unabashed, uncompromising book.

✏The Best of the Argonauts Book Summary : This revelatory exploration of Book One of the Argonautica rescues Jason from his status as the ineffectual hero of Apollonius' epic poem. James J. Clauss argues that by posing the question, "Who is the best of the Argonauts?" Apollonius redefines the epic hero and creates, in Jason, a man more realistic and less awesome than his Homeric predecessors, one who is vulnerable, dependent on the help of others, even morally questionable, yet ultimately successful. In bringing Apollonius' "curious and demanding poem" to life, Clauss illuminates two features of the poet's narrative style: his ubiquitous allusions to the poetry of others, especially Homer, and the carefully balanced structural organization of his episodes. The poet's subtextual interplay is explored, as is his propensity for underscoring the manipulation of the poetry of others through ring composition.

✏Jason and the Argonauts Book Summary : Renowned mythologist Bernard Evslin’s retelling of the perilous adventure of Jason and the Argonauts “This story begins very soon after the world began, when great raw things called monsters roamed the unfinished places eating whatever they could catch.” So says Ekion, son of the god Hermes, as he relates the tale of the treacherous crusade of Jason and the Argonauts. When Jason, a prince with the gift of healing, is assigned a quest to obtain the golden fleece of the winged ram—which, once obtained, will set Jason upon his rightful throne as king—a fantastic adventure begins. In the vein of classic storytelling, mythologist Bernard Evslin offers his own masterful recasting of the famous tale of Jason, Medea, and the Argonauts, and follows the hero’s journey to its startling and tragic conclusion.

✏The Voyage of the Argonauts Classic Reprint Book Summary : Excerpt from The Voyage of the Argonauts Warnings and examples may be of more than one kind they may affect the spirit of man as well as his practical behaviour. It is at least arguable that the Odyssey had a practical value; it has certainly a moral justification. The days that make us happy make us wise, and for the spirit these wan derings of Odysseus are not only a delight, but a lesson courage, endurance, resource, generosity are exemplified in them and in the work of Herodotus as clearly as in the stricter narrative of the most scientific historian. And inasmuch as the example they Show commends itself as aptly to the present day as to their earliest hearers, they are as nearly a possession for ever as mortality can compass.
