Bold Heart is the second in a series of books about Diana, the Goddess of Hunting—or more precisely, the Modern Day Diana. In this book, my 15-year-old niece poses as Diana (aka Artemis). Photographs of Hanna posing as Diana with her bow and arrows and her prey are paired with photographs of deer hidden in the woods.
Diana was not only the Goddess of Hunting, but she was also the protectress of teenage girls, making Hanna the perfect model. Diana cherished the traits that made her a strong, independent woman. Forever young, she defended untamed nature, high mountains and sacred woods. She was also a protector of women and childbirth and the Goddess of the Moon.
The text featured in this book comes from the Homeric Hymn 27 to Artemis (trans. Evelyn-White) a Greek epic C7th to 4th B.C. In that poem Homer calls her a “goddess with a bold heart.”
