In Regards to
Amy Myers' Aphrodite's New Temple
8 April 1999
Even though this was a battle over New Troy, somehow it only seemed to echo the story of the Trojan War in the most negligible way. Prehaps if I was more familiar with the Iliad, I would have been more struck, but I'm not and I wasn't.
I thought the story was generally childish, both in its depiction of the pantheon and somehow in the way it was written.
I thought the alternative creation myth of Stonehenge was a cute ending, but it really seemed like a really stretched out joke with a third rate punch line.
