The Women in the Moon · 10:53pm
So I was researching for a paper I need to write for my Brit Lit class, when I came across this passage in an ebook about Elizabethan writers and their works.
The Woman in the Moon is a comedic play in blank verse written by John Lyly... The subject matter—Greek mythology—would have appealed to a fashionable interest in astronomy and astrology. The Woman in the Moon is about the first human woman, named Pandora according to Greek mythology. She is gifted with the best attributes of each of the seven planets, or major deities, which makes them jealous. The gods each take a turn exerting their powers to make her unhappy, until Pandora is forced to flee earth. She chooses to live on the Moon, the realm of the goddess Luna.
Just thought I'd share that with you.
