I love the sphinx, I find her to be a beautiful character. I also love the riddles she tells.
I have always enjoyed the stories of Odysseus from Homer's Illiad and The Oddyssey.
I think the portrayal of the classical hero all stem from those two epic poems.
Medusa from Greek mythology and the Seductive Sea Sirens from Greek poet Homer's "Odessey"
I love how Medusa can turn men to stone by looking into their eyes...kinda cool. The Sea Sirens remind me of "Oh Brother, Where Are Thou" with George Clooney.
I think my favorites have to be the people in Aeschylus' "Oresteian Trilogy" (Agamemnon, Clytemnestra, Electra, Orestes, Iphigenia). I was led to their stories because I'm an opera fan. I don't really like Strauss' "Elektra", but there is something haunting about the way she enters calling "Agamemnon, Agamemnon! Wo bist du?". And of course Gluck had an obsession with Iphigenia.
I really felt like it was a "sign of the nerd" when I read the Orestia...and I liked it! And I mean REALLY liked it!
