Going to college could seem stressful for most students, especially when going to a college full of new people and trying to find a place that 'll accept you for you. For people who have felt like this usually becomes interested in the organizations related to “greek life”. Greek life basically means joining a sorority or fraternity. But expanding on to being in a organization that is lifelong and has a great meaning behind it that stands on it’s own supporting values. Greek life comes with much variety to these organizations.
Lecture 1: The Arts and Artifacts of Greek Mythology Hello and welcome to the 1st Annual Mythological Seminar and Luncheon at the Crystall Inn Library. Throughout our seminars we will discuss Greek mythology and how it relates to art, cultural values, and how it’s impacts our modern day society. As you know, Greek myths just as any myth, are traditional stories meant to explain how and why things happen. Some stories have maintained their beliefs while others have revolutionized into mere representations and theories of the past. Nevertheless, the Greek myths are a profound part of society and have inspired tradition and customs onto the world.
Leonardo da Vinci was a famous artist and scholar, during the Italian Renaissance. Da Vinci is best known for his painting, the Mona Lisa.

Nero has his step brother, Britannicus, killed so that his rule was not opposed. He then has his mother assassinated due to her opposition to his relationship with a married woman (Seneca xii). When Nero discovers the Pisonian Conspiracy to overthrow him, he goes out of his way to have anyone so much as implicated as having a part in the plot executed. Much like Atreus, Nero lets his passions rule his life by unjustly killing those that he felt threatened his power. Since all of Seneca’s plays lack dates, it is unknown when he wrote Thyestes.
He lived the rest of his life in nightmares and fears which denounced his actions. He realized how unscrupulous his actions were and his souls is long huanted by it.

The ‘evil in the ruler’ comes out of Atreus when he gains revenge by brutally murdering his brother’s two sons, cutting them up and serving them to Thyestes in an act of cannibalism and a form of sacrifice. ‘Let the father with joyous greed rend his sons, and his own flesh devour’ (1917, 278). This proves Atreus’ vaulting ambition to keep the throne. This act of cannibalism parallels to Tantalus, who killed his son, Pelops and served him to the gods. That event caused the house of Atreus to be under an eternal curse by the gods.
Through a series of prophecies, Oedipus learns that he himself killed the king, who is his father, and married his mother, the queen. This drives him to become a blind beggar when his wife/mother commits suicide. Throughout the play, one can see that Oedipus’s fate was determined by forces outside his control, as seen by his lack of agency over the events leading to his eventual fate. The intractable gods’ manipulation in Oedipus’s fate is clearly shown by the various prophecies delivered by various oracles and prophets in the play. The first word of god in Oedipus the King commands the citizens of the plague-infested city to “drive out, and not to leave uncured within this country, a pollution we have nourished in our land” (96-98).

They wanted to marry Penelope, and were vying for her affections for twenty years. This kind of hubris could not have been treated with a less severe punishment. Odysseus had to kill them, as these wooers were wrecking havoc on his home and tormented his wife. As stated in lesson 12, " the wooers had troubled his house, and devoured his substance, and oppressed his child". The lesson goes on to say, "they have suffered an evil doom through their own infatuate deeds".
Backing away, proud at his work, he went on home. He had killed the men who took his mother’s life yet impulsive he was and mad crazed that he could no longer stop. Fear quickly spread across the lands of Both mortals and immortals alike. Attack after attack, on every full moon, lamenting that Their family appointed meetings would no longer resume.

"When he came to his senses, Hercules was horrified be what he had done." (Wickersham) That 's when he had to go complete the twelve labors of Hercules as a form of punishment the gods thought was appropriate for his crime. Also, another act of destruction Hercules caused was the murder of his half-brother Iphitus. "This crime was more than fratricide; it breached the laws of hospitality, for Iphitus was Hercules ' guest when Hercules hurled him down from the walls of Tiryns." (Bleiberg) After killing his half-brother, Hercules got very sick and had to go with the Delphi to ask for a cure.
