one eye among them

Those poor Gorgons. All Perseus has to do is quietly sneak into their huddle and hold out his hand. Then he’s all like ‘I have your eye; tell me the path or I’ll throw it into the sea!” The hero as trickster. The hero as elder abuser.

(from The Heroes by Charles Kingsley, ill. Charlotte Adeney, Presentation Library)
