The problem

The Secret History is a book about a murder. The identity of the killers is not a secret; the reason is. The protagonist, Richard Papen, and the isolated group from Ancient Greek class in Hampden College, take you into a journey of self-discovery, myths and madness.

Although the book is one of the most incredible pieces of literature I've had the pleasure of reading, the book covers are disappointing, so I decided to experiment and come up with my own interpretation.
