Helen of Troy Pearl Necklace
“Did it not strike you, Theseus, Menelaus, Agamemnon, Achilles, and yes, even you Paris, that I would always belong to myself first and that is the only reason I would run? Did no one ever teach you, that when you try to touch a Goddess, when you treat her like she is property, you are playing with divine fire and you and everything you love will burn?” - From Nikita Gill’s poem “Helen of Troy”
Many names have been given to Helen of Troy, from “the most beautiful and desirable woman in the world,” to “a prize from Aphrodite to Paris,” and of course “the face that launched a thousand ships.” Helen’s character in Homer’s The Iliad can certainly be read and interpreted in different ways, but we like to see Helen as a symbol of feminine power, who’s transgressing traditional female roles. No, this half-goddess was never meant to be an angel in the house. Let’s look beyond her good looks and honour her as the powerful, bad-ass woman she is!
