Greek Mythology

What is Greek mythology?

Greek mythology, in brief, is an entertaining set of tales (of Gods, villains and valiant figures) which the people of Ancient Greece believed in. The tales were ways in which the Greeks would make sense of a wide range of things (for example: traditions). Some of the Gods which feature in these tales are as follows: Zeus, Hera, Apollo, Hermes, Athena and Aphrodite. Although, societies around the world have advanced a lot since the time when people would believe in these tales, they are still very relevant to the present age. This is because the tales present immortal figures (or Gods) as figures who are not extremely different from mortal figures (or human beings): they are fearless and sharp plus they make mistakes and win wars.

The Wicked Cometh

The Wicked Cometh blends a thrilling plot into the tapestry of English history; the result of that is a story which is immersive, hair-raising and peculiar. The plot of the novel is based in the capital of England during the Georgian period and the focus is on the frightful side of the city’s character: slums, poverty and grime, and not to mention the types of people who call it home, like killers and beggars.

The protagonist in the novel is a woman called Hester White: White is a poor woman (from Bethnal Green) who gets the opportunity to turn her destiny around when she gets hurt by the vehicle which a man called Calder Brock was riding. Brock takes Hester to his house in Westminster and lets his help look after her and then she is rushed to Waterford Hall; at the hall, White meets another woman called Rebecca Brock (who has an uncommunicative and obscure disposition) and with her, she falls into an unsolved problem of poor people getting lost.
