The love story of Psyche and Cupid is perhaps one of my favorite myths outside of the Persephone story. There are echoes of it all over the fairy tales and modern literature. I wrote a blog series on it a while back, and now I’m putting the posts together all in one place.
I began with Psyche’s backstory before she met Cupid (or Eros). Then I talked about the strange marriage, which lasted right up until Psyche looked upon Cupid’s face. Doing so broke all kinds of divine rules, and if Psyche wanted to be reunited with her husband ever again, she needed to complete a series of trials (post 1, post 2, post 3).
