This volume studies the portrayal of the goddess Venus in the Flavian Argonaut epic, which shows her as cruel deity and the personification of love- and passion-induced furor. The study shows the goddess' central role and relates her portrayal to other representations of madness in the epic tradition, as well as to other constructions of deviance in philosophy, medicine and religion.
