Loosely based on the Metamorphoses poems of Ovid, The House o Haivers retells some of the best-known, as well as some less familiar, Greek and Roman myths. Using varieties of accessible modern Scots, these writers bring alive a range of tales; including: oMidas, whose touch turned everything to gold. oEcho and Narcissus and how love turned one into a disembodied voice and the other into a flower. oHow Arachne took on the goddess Athena in a weaving contest and what happened to her when she won. oThe adventures of the mighty heroes Perseus and Hercules and the stories of the Minotaur amoungst others. The collection begins in the Hoose o Haivers, a place where stories both true and false begin and grow - a place based on Ovid's fantastic description of the House of Rumour.
