The King Must Die The Bull from the Sea Folio Society [2017]


Out of stock


The King Must Die and The Bull from the Sea by Mary Renault

The King Must Die traces the early life and adventures of Theseus, a hero in Greek mythology. It is set in Ancient Greece: Troizen, Corinth, Eleusis, Athens, Knossos in Crete, and Naxos. Rather than retelling the myth, Renault constructs an archaeologically and anthropologically plausible story that might have developed into the myth. She captures the essentials while removing the more fantastical elements, such as monsters and the appearances of gods.

The Bull from the Sea is the sequel to Mary Renault’s The King Must Die. It continues the story of the mythological hero Theseus after his return from Crete. The story is a retelling of the life of mythological hero Theseus after his return from the Minoan palace of Knossos. The novel follows his later quests, his friendship with Pirithos, and his liaison with Hippolyta and marriage to Phaedra.
