He also made a point to prove to his subjects that the gods loved him, by restoring 82 temples that had been falling apart or weren’t used. By doing this restoration, he gained
Classical Greek mythology has long been an inspiring subject to artists. The symbolism and allure of the folklore has been a major artistic theme throughout the centuries. Many of the most famous images we know today, like Botticelli’s “Birth of Venus” or Michelangelo’s “David,” draw from both classical Greek antiquity - the study of sculpture and body form from the Classical period – and classical Greek mythology. In his sculpture “Pathos Hephaestus Eros,” artist John Whitcomb Robinson utilizes this same mythology to portray the Greek god Hephaestus in relation to humanity. I’d like to reiterate some important elements of the formal analysis of this sculpture that play an important role in its interpretation.
Melody Beattie once said “Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.” This is what Odysseus had to learn after he did not thank the gods for the Trojan war victory due to his pride. According to Aristotle, a greek philosopher, “the Greek hero was born of royalty. The Greek hero was braver, taller, handsomer, stronger, than all else. He was liked universally. Songs of praise were sung about him.
The Swamp Adder was told to kill when it went through the ventilator. It had been startled by the match, so because of its instinct to kill, it killed the closest thing which was Dr. Roylott.

In early literate civilizations, religion was largely characterized by the worship of and reverence for a collective body of deities that explain natural phenomena. These conceptual Gods played an incessant role in developing human consciousness, dictating both human thought and action. It is unsurprising, then, that the Gods of Homer’s Iliad direct the course of the epic’s characters and even the Trojan war itself. Indeed, the Iliad anthropomorphizes these divine beings and frequently showcases their interactions with both one another and the Trojan and Achaean soldiers, whether in the form of direct contact, prayer, or prophecy. Given Homer’s “distinguished, inclusive, and elastic” vision of the gods, Scholar Roy Hack proposes that Homer was a personal polytheist, signified further by his envisioned world being “effectively governed (throughout) by divine power.” Contrary to this, the actions of the Gods in the Iliad are often antithetical to the grandiose descriptions of their reputations and abilities found in other Greek literature.
