"The ancient Greeks believed that their lives were controlled by fate. But how a person arrived at his or her destiny was another matter. Both free will and the influence of the gods played major roles in shaping a person's life. Case in point - Perseus's tale is that of a young man who struggles to fulfill his own fate with the help of the powerful goddess Athena. Perseus & Medusa chronicles this hero's quest to pursue the head of a hideous Gorgon whose terrifying stare could turn men to stone!"--Container.
