What is a mermaid? Nothing so simple as a woman with a fish’s tail. Mythology, symbolism, literature, art, folktale and ballad have all influenced her development, and male attitudes to women are key to both her vulnerability and her power.
The mermaid’s history examined through images from ancient art to modern media, covering myth, folktale, and attitudes to sex and gender.
