A modern retelling of the myth of Persephone, Proserpina is the story of an immortal goddess condemned to eternity under the heel of a domineering mother. What price would she -- and all of creation -- pay for freedom?
A mixture of modern world scenes and classical themes, Proserpina is a special story in the Mythology of the Modern World, a popular series of stories and folk tales explaining the world from a mythological -- and generally satirical -- point of view.
