These three recent novels all retell legends from ancient Greece, often reclaiming viewpoints of suppressed or vilified female characters. 
- BRIGHT BLACK AIR by David Vann (Medea and Jason) 
- THE CHILDREN OF JOCASTA by Natalie Haynes (Oedipus and Antigone)
- HOUSE OF NAMES by Colm Toibin (Clytemnestra, Orestes, Electra and Iphigenia)
