This book is set in ancient Greece, and the events are recounted in the first person by Alkaeus, a youngster "on the threshold of manhood.". The Labours as retold and reinterpreted are "deconstructions" of the legends and therefore run the risk of disillusioning the young Alkaeus (which they do on occasion), but which also help to educate him so that he acquires a realistic and adult perspective on the legendary hero.
