Courtship of Hippodameia
|Author: ||M. Jennie Frost|
This narrative poem retells the ancient Greek myths of Tantalos, Oinomaos, Hippodameia, Pelops, and Myrtilos. Haunted by her dead suitors, Hippodameia recalls how her father offered her as a prize in a chariot race between himself and her perspective suitors, and how Pelops won that race and caused the curse of Myrtilos to fall upon his descendents.
