Came across this one and was surprised to find a short story by Miller I hadn’t known about I found the interpretation of Galatea’s story interesting seeing how the transformation from statue to human might or might not fit into society I didn’t entirely gather what was going on in the beginning with the visits from doctors etc but it didn’t take long for the bizarre situation to feel like a “new normal” I would’ve loved to see this as a full novel but as a snippet of a retelling it proved to be an interesting one Too short to gain any full attachmentstrong opinions but a fun idea to work with nonetheless

Wife Galatea is expected to be obedience and humility personified but it is not long before she learns to use her beauty as a form of manipulation In a desperate bid by her obsessive. Pygmalion and Galatea by Laurent Pêcheux 1784 Galatea is a short stand alone story and normally I wouldn't have bothered with it However This is a story by Madeline Miller we're talking about here author of the brilliant novels Circe and The Song of Achilles I will read anything and everything she writes This might just be a short story but it too is brilliant Galatea is a woman whose husband is a sculptor and who is sculpted by him into the perfect woman Afterwards a goddess brings her to life Galatea's husband keeps her captive wanting to keep her as she is to preserve this woman he sees as a possession this woman who embodies his idea of the perfect woman He seeks to control her in every way body and mind However Galatea does not truly belong to him and cannot fully be contained and controlled The story is an examination of society's idea of a perfect woman and the objectification of women It might be brief but it is powerful Madeline Miller has such a gift with words with creating real characters you immediately care about and identify with 5 stars though I wish I could give it It is a beautiful story that feels like a song
