The cyclopes were destined to be the servants of the gods. Born of the union of Uranus and Gaia, Mother of the Earth, they were unfortunately cursed with a horrendous appearance. They were huge creatures, with a single eye in the centers of their foreheads.
Although the cyclopes may have suffered from their cruel treatment, they rose above their afflictions to become excellent artisans and craftsmen. Their metal work and creation of thunderbolts for Zeus were spectacular.
This is a wonderful tale of the intrigue of the gods, a story of love and jealousy, pity, woe and revenge. All of our human emotions are showcased in the plight of the cyclopes, lovingly told by one of the masters of mythology, Bernard Evslin.
