Anne Carson's style of writing is interesting and engaging. The story of Geryon and the monster within him was original. The style was difficult for me to get into due to the tradition i have with conventional styles. I thought the sexuality of Geryon and his relationship with Herakles was an interesting dynamic. I am wondering if his sexuality relates to the volcano symbolism in the story. I know it sounds naive of me but I wondering what the symbolic meaning of the volcano?
