Bundy 0.1 Allyson Bundy Mr. B English 9 February 2018 Persephone, Queen of the Underworld The story of how Persephone became the Queen of the Underworld is an interesting one. It was a unique story, and that is why I chose Persephone to write my research paper on. In short terms, she became the Queen of the Under by being kidnapped by Hades. There are a lot more details to the story though. Persephone, otherwise known as Kore, and according to the Ancient History Encyclopedia, “Kore signifies both ‘daughter’ and ‘maiden’.” She was the goddess of vegetation and grain.
Demeter, the goddess of fertile, green earth was the daughter of two of the titans, Cronus and Rhea (Freeman 69-70). She was an Olympian along with her brother Zeus and the two eventually they had a daughter together named Persephone (Encyclopedia Mythica). In works of art, Demeter is frequently shown melancholy and thoughtful (Encyclopedia Mythica). She is commonly referred to in the myth where Persephone is kidnapped and the myth in which she becomes the nurse for the King of Eleusis's children. Demeter is a notable figure in Greek mythology.
Mama uses the plant as her fuel to always put the family first and to remember her dreams, as well as remind her family of theirs (Shmoop Editorial Team). Throughout the play, Mama’s plant symbolizes many things to the Younger family.
Not only does place influence an individual, but the individual influences the place as well. For Nellie Pritchard and Rose Gardner, Black Mountain interacted with them as a person would. For Nellie, the mountain reflected her feelings of desperation, death, and becoming lost or a part of the land. Rose stated that "the mountain had become my home, a safe friend.." and saw it as a healer and a new beginning with Jack Allen after Hobbs' death. To Josie Clay, the mountain evoked loss and regret, as it took her daughter away and was a part of what drove her daughter to commit murder.
The Furies are monstrous women that lived in the underworld and avenged murders. In Greek, they are typically known as Erinyes, which may have originated from the Arcadian word meaning to be angry. They are known to look like Gorgons of sorts, with their snaky hair. Eventually, they became known as fearsome creatures who loved to wreak havoc. Next, the Fates were three sisters, incarnations of destiny and life.
She would start epidemics if she were not honored properly, but she would also stop them. Over time, the Egyptian Cat Goddess Bast developed many areas of influence. She was the lion headed Goddess of the Lower Nile in the early days. She was responsible for protecting the Pharaoh and Ra the sun God. She is considered the Goddess of protection.
Winnie’s best friend the Toad seemed to have all human characteristics. The idea of immortality was presented in the kingdom of fantasy. Winnie was a normal girl who was growing and coming face-to-face with the realities and the values of life and what she learnt through the book is very meaningful to everyone. Winnie begins as tired of being in her house with her parents; she wanted to explore life far away from home. From that point her life completely changed.
It is made clear that this part of death—the coldness, and burial—may not be ideal, but it does guide her to Immortality. Additionally, the use of alliteration in this stanza that emphasizes the material trappings—“gossamer” “gown” and “tippet” “tulle”—makes the stanza much less sinister. The speaker reminisces on this day she died: “Since then – 'tis Centuries – and yet / Feels shorter than the Day”. We’re given insight that the speaker has been dead throughout the poem, and has been telling the story of the day she died--she always knew the horse’s leading the carriage were always leading her on to the
Athena wore a Aegis, and a goatskin shield which had a fringe of snakes covering it. The snakes came from Medusa's head, and was a gift from another god. The birth of Athena was a favorite topic of Greek vase painters, because of the many different stories of how she came about in the world of Greek gods and goddesses. One story was that Athena was born to one parent. That parent being Zeus.
2. According to Panttaja, Cinderella 's mother remains very much present throughout the story in the form of the pear tree planted by Cinderella on her mother 's grave. All through the story, the presence of her mother is felt because anything that Cinderella does is done with the help of the pear tree. Her mother helps her through the hard and good times. She even takes care of Cinderella 's enemies: the stepsisters.
My constellation myth involves the Greek gods. It is a tale of great tragedy and it goes like this: Once there was a young Greek goddess. Her name was Persephone and she was the beautiful daughter of Demeter and Zeus. Her mother was the goddess of crops and harvest, and her father was the lord of the sky and all the gods. Persephone was the goddess of Spring.
The president, President Eisenhower gave the award to Maria. When she became a professional ballerina she performed a dance she made called “The Firebird”. She made that dance because of her grandmother. Her grandmother would tell her stories about animals and spirits that walk the earth. She made that play because of her grandmother.
The daughter of Zeus and Demeter, seemed to have someone mindful of her always, a father to watch above and a mother who watched her roam the earth, Kore, girl, what could fit better. However, now she is known as Persephone, a name that seems to claim more power and respect. The origin of Persephone’s name, is considered to have its roots from the Greek word of pertho that translates to ‘the destroyer’ (www.behindthename.com/name/Persephone). After being taken away to the underworld by Hades she earns a new domain. Now she, no longer responsible for the harvest as was her mother, guards the gates back to life, Queen of the Underworld.
In like manner, the novel Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston can be closely associated with Mr. Foster’s “quest formula”. The novel revolves around a main character named Janie who, since a young girl, has always wanted to find true love after witnessing a bee pollinating a pear tree. With only her grandmother as her family, she married twice, Logan Killicks and Joe Starks, before she found a man that made her happy. During unexpected circumstances, Janie had to kill Tea Cake and return to her previous home, where she rationalizes that Tea Cake gave her what she wanted the most, freedom and free will, and finally finds her peace of mind. Comparatively, this journey that Janie goes on is very much alike to Mr. Foster’s concept
