The Daughters


You know, it might not be as commercially successful in certain venues or avenues, but we challenged them. We challenged radio, in a way, with this -- I don't even know how to say it. I guess it's a moment. It's just like, hey, I know we keep talking about this, but we're just looking for a God for the daughters, and we believe that this is the tipping point. We're moving to a greater place than we have been in the past, but we're still having the same old tired conversation all the time. So it felt like it needed to come out sooner rather than later, and we just approached it from that perspective.




the daughters



A vivid, universal story about the bond between mothers and daughters, this is a gripping, beautiful novel. Variyar deftly moves along the alternating timelines of 1990s India and present-day Australia and artfully uses both backdrops to illustrate the long-lasting horrors of female infanticide. An absolute knockout.


An Atlantis-like city from Celtic legend is the setting of The Daughters of Ys, a mythical graphic novel fantasy from National Book Award winner M. T. Anderson and artist Jo Rioux.Ys, city of wealth and wonder, has a history of dark secrets. Queen Malgven used magic to raise the great walls that keep Ys safe from the tumultuous sea.

Rozenn, the heir to the throne, spends her time on the moors communing with wild animals, while Dahut, the youngest, enjoys the splendors of royal life and is eager to take part in palace intrigue.When Rozenn and Dahut's bond is irrevocably changed, the fate of Ys is sealed, exposing the monsters that lurk in plain view. M. T. Anderson and Jo Rioux reimagine this classic Breton folktale of love, loss, and rebirth, revealing the secrets that lie beneath the surface.


Two of the Big Three at the Yalta Conference in February 1945 brought their daughters, Anna Roosevelt and Sarah Churchill with them to Crimea, as did the U.S. ambassador to the Soviet Union, W. Averell Harriman, whose daughter Kathleen was a war correspondent working out of the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. The third of the Big Three, Joseph Stalin, had a daughter who later became well known as a defector, Svetlana, then aged 19, but she did not attend. Anna, Sarah, and Kathleen (ages 38, 30, and 28) assisted their fathers and steadied them as they tried to plan the future of post-war humanity.


Rubens' life-size painting illustrates the mythical tale recounted by the poets Theocritus (c.300-250 BCE) and Ovid (43 BCE – 18 CE), concerning the abduction of the daughters of King Leucippus of Argos, by the twin brothers Castor and Pollux (Polydeuces), together known as the Dioscuri. According to legend, these twins had the same mother, Leda, but different fathers: Castor was the earthly son of Tyndareus, King of Sparta, while Pollux was the divine son of Zeus, who seduced Leda in the guise of a swan. The brothers were set on marrying Hilaeira and Phoebe - the daughters of Leucippus - who were also known as the Leucippides. Unfortunately, they were already betrothed to the twin brothers Lynceus and Idas of Thebes, sons of Tyndareus's brother Aphareus. So to enforce their will, Castor and Pollux carried off the two women to Sparta, where they were duly married, and both gave birth to sons: Phoebe bore Mnesileos to Pollux; Hilaeira bore Anogon to Castor.


Kalypso is not a DC Comics character but takes clear inspiration from the Greek mythology counterpart: Calypso. As one of the fabled daughters of Atlas, Calypso lives alone on the island of Ogygia. Although she did not play a large role in Greek mythology, as the main antagonist in Shazam! Fury of the Gods, it seems Kalypso will have quite the time against Shazam.


"Betrayed", wrote the seventeenth-century painter Pieter van Lint on his small drawing after one of the versions of the tapestry depicting Achilles Among the Daughters of Lycomedes, capturing the essence of the narrative in a single word. Thetis had taken her son Achilles to the island of Scyros to prevent him from accompanying the Greek army to Troy. Disguised as a woman, Achilles lived on Scyros among the daughters of King Lycomedes until the Greeks discovered his whereabouts and sent Odysseus and Diomedes to the island to fetch him. The two presented themselves as pedlars and placed a collection of trinkets before the young women. But Odysseus had cunningly concealed weapons among his wares, certain that Achilles would instinctively react to them. Achilles indeed reached out for the arms and thus betrayed himself. According to some classical sources, Odysseus was accompanied by a bugler, counting on Achilles to respond to the call of a bugle. In those accounts, Achilles tore off his dress and put on his armour. He had fallen in love with Lycomedess most beautiful daughter, Deidameia, who was pregnant with Neoptolemus (Pyrrhus) at the time of Odysseuss visit. Rubens illustrated the moment when Achilles places the helmet on his head and grasps the significance of what he has done. His beloved Deidameia, with her sisters gathered around her, looks at him in dismay, aware of the drama about to unfold. Diomedes and Odysseus stand behind Achilles. The turbaned Odysseus looks back at someone outside the picture, holding his finger to his lips as if signalling silence. Here, Rubens may have been hinting at the buglers As in all the Achilles series, the terms allude directly to the central scene. The figure with a fox at her feet symbolises Cunning, while Minerva, the goddess of wisdom, is portrayed with an owl at the base of her shaft.

Tensions during the Yalta Conference in February 1945 threatened to tear apart the wartime alliance among Franklin Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and Joseph Stalin just as victory was close at hand. Catherine Grace Katz uncovers the dramatic story of the three young women who were chosen by their fathers to travel with them to Yalta, each bound by fierce family loyalty, political savvy, and intertwined romances that powerfully colored these crucial days. Kathleen Harriman was a champion skier, war correspondent, and daughter of US ambassador to the Soviet Union Averell Harriman. Sarah Churchill, an actress-turned-RAF officer, was devoted to her brilliant father, who depended on her astute political mind. Roosevelt's only daughter, Anna, chosen instead of her mother Eleanor to accompany the president to Yalta, arrived there as keeper of her father's most damaging secrets. Situated in the political maelstrom that marked the transition to a post-war world, The Daughters of Yalta is a remarkable story of fathers and daughters whose relationships were tested and strengthened by the history they witnessed and the future they crafted together.


The lyricism, eloquence and sensuality that characterise his entire oeuvre are already apparent in Rubens' mythological compositions of 1600-1620. These are often vigorous, earthy works, such as the Rape of the Daughters of Leucippus.The two daughters of King Leucippus were betrothed to a set of twins, cousins of Castor and Pollux. But the latter pair carried the maidens off and had sons by them. Armed warriors are seen in the act of seizing the naked maidens and bearing them away on horseback.The composition of this painting opens upward like the flowering of a bouquet. The two divergent diagonals rise from the base of the painting, where the feet of captive and aggressor are placed side by side. The volumes ascend from this point, harmoniously residing on successive points of equilibrium, while the luminous white forms of the nude victims contrast with the tanned, caparisoned bodies of their hirsute rapists. Here Rubens' classicising and Baroque tendencies are completely reconciled. 041b061a72
