Greek Myth XLIX: Pseudo-Apollodorus’s Bibliotheca Book III, Chapter VIII – Lycaon, Callisto, or Maybe You Should Have Stopped at 49

There’s a bear in the sky!

Discussion Prompts

  1. What’s the deal with 50 sons? Why are they always so ill-behaved? Do you think things would be different if there were only 49 of them?
  2. What do you think is the “real” story about Callisto?
  3. Which version of Callisto’s death do you prefer? Why?

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.
