The legend of the mermaid, the amphibious hybrid creature with mysterious powers depicted as virginal, seductive, beautiful and destructive exists in the folklore of every seafaring culture. “Marina Warner, mythographer and historian, sees the mermaid as one of the richest “mythopoeic” figures in our culture: children and adults have an urge to embroider her myth. Her erotic potency can be sufficiently masked to be safe enough for children’s stories, but she is nevertheless “a figure of dangerous seduction”. Sexual but inaccessible, under threat but powerful in her own right, she is a symbol of both men’s idealization and fear of women.” – J. Thomas-Corr – FT 2018.
