Greek Myth XLVI: Pseudo-Apollodorus’s Bibliotheca Book III, Chapter V – Dionysus, Antiope, Amphion & Zethus, Oedipus, or Dionysus’s Bite Is Worse Than His Bark

So much territory to cover…

Discussion Prompts

  1. Is Dionysus an earth goddess? Why or why not?
  2. Niobe and Grief. Discuss.
  3. How difficult is the riddle of the sphinx? Does she already know the answer? Or is she trying to figure it out herself?
  4. Retell the whole Oedipus story from Jocasta’s point of view.
  5. Why do you think the pirates are turned into dolphins?
  6. Would you want to be the ruler of Thebes? Why or why not?

I have a BA in History and Classical Civilization from Loyola University Chicago and an MPH from Western Michigan University. I've been a geometry teacher, a religion teacher, a writing tutor. I'm a writer, a knitter, a dancer, a singer, an actor. And, yes, for fun I like to reread everything that was assigned while getting my classics degree.
