Warren changed the mood is with the plot. First, Hestia gave up her throne to Dionysus in Mrs. Warren’s version. In the written story, “Hestia, the eldest sister of Zeus, was goddess of the hearth. She had no throne, but tended the sacred fire in the hall…” (Pg.5) The quote above proves that the mood changed from violent to interesting with the plot because instead of always having a throne like in the written story, Dionysus had to beg for it until Hestia let him have hers in Mrs. Warren’s story.

Go tell him of this. I’ll have this knot knit up tomorrow morning” (Shakespeare 4.2).

There are many faults in the plan. Such as, Friar Lawrence failing to inform romeo that Juliet is not dead and he should retrieve her from the tomb, this is because the messenger got held back.

I feel that Demeter meets a lot of the stages of being a hero. she has a call to adventure when her daughter goes missing, she has a refusal to call when she finds out that her daughter has been married off to Hades, she fits into the ordeal stage because she causes the crops to stop growing all around the world and she fits the resurrection stage because once she finally sees her daughter she turns to her old self and brings the crops back. I think she is different than other hero’s because she doesn’t do anything that signifies she is heroic, she is god, and she gave up on getting what was hers back rather than do what other heroes have done.
