An intrepid voyage out to the frontiers of the latest thinking about love, language, and family Maggie Nelson's The Argonauts is a genre-bending memoir, a work of "autotheory" offering fresh, fierce, and timely thinking about desire, identity, and the limitations and possibilities of love and language. It binds an account of Nelson's relationship with her partner and a journey to and through a pregnancy to a rigorous exploration of sexuality, gender, and "family." An insistence on radical individual freedom and the value of caretaking becomes the rallying cry for this thoughtful, unabashed, uncompromising book.

‘A superb exploration of the risk and the excitement of change...An exceptional portrait both of a romantic partnership and of the collaboration between Nelson’s mind and heart.’ New Yorker Winner, 2016 National Book Critics Circle Award for Criticism Maggie Nelson’s The Argonauts is a genre-bending memoir, a work of ‘autotheory’ offering fresh, fierce and timely thinking about desire, identity and the limitations and possibilities of love and language. At its centre is a romance: the story of the author’s relationship with the artist Harry Dodge. This story, which includes the author’s account of falling in love with Dodge, who is fluidly gendered, as well as her journey to and through a pregnancy, is an intimate portrayal of the complexities and joys of (queer) family making. Writing in the spirit of public intellectuals such as Susan Sontag and Roland Barthes, Nelson binds her personal experience to a rigorous exploration of what iconic theorists have said about sexuality, gender, and the vexed institutions of marriage and child-rearing. Nelson’s insistence on radical individual freedom and the value of caretaking becomes the rallying cry for this thoughtful, unabashed, uncompromising book. Maggie Nelson is a poet, a critic, and the author of several nonfiction books, including The Red Parts, The Art of Cruelty: A Reckoning, Bluets, and Jane: A Murder. She teaches in the School of Critical Studies at CalArts and lives in Los Angeles, California. ‘Maggie Nelson slays entrenched notions of gender, marriage and sexuality with lyricism, intellectual brass and soul-ringing honesty.’ Vanity Fair ‘Nelson’s writing is fluid—to read her story is to drift dreamily among her thoughts...She masterfully analyzes the way we talk about sex and gender.’ Huffington Post ‘One of the most intelligent, generous and moving books of the year.’ STARRED review Publishers Weekly ‘A book that will challenge readers as much as the author has challenged h

This revelatory exploration of Book One of the Argonautica rescues Jason from his status as the ineffectual hero of Apollonius' epic poem. James J. Clauss argues that by posing the question, "Who is the best of the Argonauts?" Apollonius redefines the epic hero and creates, in Jason, a man more realistic and less awesome than his Homeric predecessors, one who is vulnerable, dependent on the help of others, even morally questionable, yet ultimately successful. In bringing Apollonius' "curious and demanding poem" to life, Clauss illuminates two features of the poet's narrative style: his ubiquitous allusions to the poetry of others, especially Homer, and the carefully balanced structural organization of his episodes. The poet's subtextual interplay is explored, as is his propensity for underscoring the manipulation of the poetry of others through ring composition.

Thousands of readers love Argonauts, calling it a “fantastic tale” and “clever, rich, and highly entertaining.” It’s a new twist on an old myth. It’s the story of Jason, a wealthy son of privilege who longs to be a warrior. His father’s death means Jason can finally join the Argonauts, an elite group of warriors who’ve overhauled their genetic code. It’s the story of Medea, a scientist who toils away in a lab changing people’s genes. She gives the warriors their powers, but she never gets an ounce of credit. And now she’s found herself fighting alongside them. And it’s the story of an adventure turned suicide mission, all for the sake of a crown. Readers love the twists on ancient Greek mythology. The story of Jason and Medea is thousands of years old. It was once the subject of some of the greatest plays and poems in human history, but the myth has died away in recent years. We remember Hercules, but whatever happened to Jason? Argonauts retells the old story in a near-future science fiction setting, with future technologies replacing ancient magic. One Goodreads reviewer wrote: “I love mythical retellings and this is certainly one of the most innovative…. It shouldn’t work, but it does. The ancient Greek names and themes actually seem to feed perfectly into the world….” Another reviewer said she “loved the spinning of the classic tale into something futuristic and different!” Even if you’re not a mythology expert, you’ll find yourself recognizing pieces of the myths. Maybe you’re a Game of Thrones fan who’ll learn where the Harpies came from, or where Cersei Lannister got her name. Or maybe you’re a Harry Potter fan who’ll learn about the myths that inspired characters like J.K. Rowling’s Amycus Carrow. These authors loved the myth, and you might, too. Readers love the science fiction premise. You’ve heard the stories in the news. Jobs being taken by robots. The corporate elite revealed to be more and more corr

Few classical stories are as exciting as that of Jason and the Golden Fleece. The legend of the boy, who discovers a new identity as son of a usurped king and leads a crew of demi-gods and famous heroes, has resonated through the ages, rumbling like the clashing rocks, which almost pulverised the Argo. The myth and its reception inspires endless engagements: while it tells of a quest to the ends of the earth, of the tyrants Pelias and Aetes, of dragons' teeth, of the loss of Hylas (beloved of Hercules) stolen away by nymphs, and of Jason's seduction of the powerful witch Medea (later betrayed for a more useful princess), it speaks to us of more: of gender and sexuality; of heroism and lost integrity; of powerful gods and terrifying monsters; of identity and otherness; of exploration and exploitation. The Argonauts are emblems of collective heroism, yet also of the emptiness of glory. From Pindar to J. W. Waterhouse, Apollonius of Rhodes to Ray Harryhausen, and Robert Graves to Mary Zimmerman, the Argonaut myth has produced later interpretations as rich, salty and complex as the ancient versions. Helen Lovatt here unravels, like untangled sea-kelp, the diverse strands of the narrative and its numerous and fascinating afterlives. Her book will prove both informative and endlessly entertaining to those who love classical literature and myth.
