“She turned into a tree. It was a Mystery. It must have been. Nothing else made sense, because I didn’t understand it.”
In this week’s episode of The Literary Coven, Lily and Courtney explore the lives of Apollo, Simmea, and Maia in The Just City. In this experimental society, the goddess, Athene, brings together souls from different eras and parts of the world to create Plato’s Republic. Lily and Courtney discuss their thoughts about the book, the author, the main characters, major themes, and serious concepts including rape and slavery. Join these giggly hosts as they examine Jo Walton’s The Just City.
