Rebecca Armstrong investigates the myths of three Cretan women - King Minos' wife, Pasiphae, and their daughters Ariadne and Phaedra - as they appear in Latin poetry of the late Republic and early Empire. She offers detailed readings of the most prominent treatments of the stories, alongside a thematic investigation of the ideas of memory, wildness, and morality which recur so prominently in the tales.
