Hephaestus: the devalued masculine
Hephaestus, the crippled smith, is conceived by his mother without a father, then rejected for his deformity. His myth illuminates the shadow issues around Jupiter, about not being good enough, in a parent’s eyes. Hephaestus, the devalued masculine, is courted for his ingenuity and skill, mocked for his wife’s infidelity. We will look at mothers and sons, and how creativity may bring healing to envy.
