In Venus & Aphrodite: History of a Goddess, Bettany Hughes delves into the origins of Aphrodite, Goddess of Love - born in Cypress and the product of blood, guts, incest, patricide, love, lust and sex. She not only is the emblem of love and sex but also our very thirst and drive for life. Through the ages, how Aphrodite has been perceived is a reflection and a projection of how women are demonised and idealised.
