Beschrijving

Het wervelende vervolg op de bestseller Mythos

In Helden vertelt Stephen Fry op sprankelende wijze de dramatische, geestige, tragische en tijdloze verhalen van de stervelingen uit de mythologie. Stap aan boord van de Argo en beleef met Jason zijn heroïsche queeste naar het Gulden Vlies, maak kennis met Atalante, die opgroeide bij de beren en die haar aanbidders telkens weer het nakijken gaf. Beleef de avonturen van Oidipous, die het raadsel van de Sfinx weet op te lossen. Volg Herakles op zijn pad als hij zijn twaalf werken moet verrichten en dool rond in het Labyrint van koning Minos, waar de monsterlijke Minotauros op je wacht. Huiveringwekkend en meeslepend zijn de verhalen van de Griekse helden, die ons opnieuw laten zien waartoe wij mensen in staat zijn.

Over de auteur
Photo Stephen Fry

Stephen Fry (1957) is an English actor, screenwriter, author, playwright, journalist, poet, comedian, television presenter, film director, and a director of Norwich City Football Club.

After a troubled childhood and adolescence, during which he was expelled from a number of schools and eventually spent three months in prison for credit card fraud, he was able to secure a place at Queens' College, Cambridge where he studied English Literature.

He first came to public attention in the 1981 Cambridge Footlights Revue presentation The Cellar Tapes, which also included Hugh Laurie, Emma Thompson and Tony Slattery. With Hugh Laurie, as the comedy double act Fry and Laurie, he co-wrote and co-starred in A Bit of Fry & Laurie, and took the role of Jeeves (with Laurie playing Wooster) in Jeeves and Wooster.

As an actor, Fry played the lead in the film Wilde, was Melchett in the BBC television series Blackadder, starred as the title character Peter Kingdom in the ITV series Kingdom, has a recurring guest role as Dr. Gordon Wyatt on the Fox crime series Bones and appeared as rogue TV host Gordon Deitrich in the dystopian thriller V for Vendetta. He has also written and presented several documentary series including the 2008 television series Stephen Fry in America, which saw him travelling across all 50 US states. Since 2003 he has been the host of the quiz show QI.

As well as his work in television, Fry has contributed columns and articles for newspapers and magazines, and has written four novels and two volumes of autobiography, Moab Is My Washpot and The Fry Chronicles. He also appears frequently on BBC Radio 4, starring in the comedy series Absolute Power, being a frequent guest on panel games such as Just a Minute, and acting as chairman for I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue, where he was one of a trio of hosts who succeeded the late Humphrey Lyttelton. Fry is also known for his voice-overs, reading all seven of the Harry Potter novels for the UK audiobook recordings, and as the narrator in the Little Big Planet series of video games.
