Greek Mythology: The tale of psyche & Eros
Ever wondered what inspired “Beauty & the Beast”? Greek Mythology: The Tale of Psyche & Eros begins when the goddess Aphrodite discovers humans worshiping a beautiful mortal named Psyche. Overcome with rage and jealousy, Aphrodite sends her son, Eros (also known as “Cupid” to the ancient Romans), to punish her. Accidentally pricked by one of his own arrows, Eros falls hopelessly in love with Psyche. Eros decides to hide Psyche from Aphrodite in a castle under one condition: Psyche must never see his face. Driven by curiosity, Psyche steals a glance at her mysterious husband’s face one night, and the wonderful life they’ve had shatters instantly. Now, Psyche must face several impossible tasks to set things right with the gods, proving she’s just as brave as she is beautiful.
