In the songs “Song to the Siren” by Tim Buckley and “Sirens Song” by Miss May I, the allusion to the Siren song and the Sirens has the effect of influencing the reader into feeling sympathetic for men that bear losses, are powerless, and are forced to make emotionally challenging decisions due to deadly women.

The depiction of mortality of humans and their vulnerability was used with figurative language, and another example of this can be found in the scene of Scylla. The scene is set, and Scylla is stirring up the water to threaten Odysseus and his men. “All the sea was like a cauldron,” (II. 110-112)
Semele’s sisters, the daughters of Cadmus, did not believe their sister bore Zeus’s child and thought Zeus killed her for spreading false words. Dionysus expresses disdain for Cadmus’s daughters during a monolog, “They said Semele was seduced by some man or other and put the blame on Zeus for her mistake in bed, and Zeus killed her because she pretended to be his wife… That is why I have stung these women into madness” (pg.2 30-35). Dionysus devised a plan of revenge on the Cadmus family. His
He is heir to the throne should be his, the son of a mother who he does not trust, nephew of the man who possibly killed his father, well, Ofelia is in a pretty tight spot too. Ophelia's father has been murdered by Hamlet, who used to be in love with her, and is now yelling at her about nunneries and then making strange sexual jokes and then goes to the sea. In the second act, Polonius says of Hamlet, "Though this be madness, yet there is method in it" and let's not overlook the method in the madness of Ophelia, like towards the end of Act Four, which delivers flowers you've collected to Claudius, Gertrude, and Laertes. These flowers have meanings that each would be known to the Elizabethan audience, they were the kind of people who liked their bouquets to contain secret codes. “There’s fennel for you, and columbines," says Ophelia, presumably to Gertrude fennel meant as flattery and columbines, marital infidelity.
