Was The Minotaur Man Or Monster

...Absolutely! He helped to keep the city of Athens under King Minos’s control. King Minos wasn’t going to let him out of the labyrinth, even if Athens was no longer a threat. The Minotaur was a political weapon. King Minos was the type of person that would use the Minotaur as an instrument of terror and intimidation. This leads me to a question. Why would Poseidon give King Minos, in essence, a very powerful weapon for disobeying him? This part of the myth threw me for a loop. In Greek mythology, the gods are flawed, constantly holding petty grudges. Poseidon was a god, which makes guessing his intentions very difficult to guess but, I will give it a shot. One possibility is Poseidon knew that the gift of the Minotaur to King Minos, Would eventually lead to Perseus. Perseus would then destroy the Minotaur. These actions freeing Athens, from the oppression of the despicable King Minos and destroying the power of Crete as a nation. Another possibility, Is that Poseidon was showing all the neighboring countries just how powerful he was. After all Greek gods were very arrogant and absolutely loved to show how much more powerful they were than regular human beings. I like to believe the gift of the Minotaur to King Minos by Poseidon was a curse in the form of a gift. It is undeniable the Minotaur made King Minos a target to other nations, especially to the Athenians. By having the Athenians hand over 14 virgins every nine years, it was only...

...connected with the real life. The society creates its own myths to explain different aspects of the world, but some people also use myths to control the social misunderstanding and diversely thinking level. An example of this kind of usage can be found in the history and mythology of ancient Greek civilization. One of the most known and popular myths of Ancient Greece is the Myth of Minotaur who is believed to have bull head and human body. He lived on the island Crete, near the Heraklion city. He is highly associated with the Labyrinth, in which he was thrown by Minos. Each year Minos gifted him 7 young men and women for eating. With the help of this myth, Greek people tried to explain the mystic disappearances of the people who strayed in the chains of hills of Crete. On the other hand, the governors of the period used the myth to threaten the society. It is interesting to note, that Minos, was a real governor. He enhanced the power of belief in that myth by ordering Daedalus to construct a real Labyrinth, moreover, the priests put on heads of bulls and appeared near the Labyrinth, to somehow prove the existence of that creature. To conclude, a single myth can have various functions and be used for both explanation and governing purposes. References...

Upon Curious Wings

...Tim O’Donnell Upon Curious Wings When my good friend, Joe, first showed me the film Sunshine, I was captivated by it. I was originally entertained solely by its epic nature, considering it centered on the immensely powerful force that is our Sun. But recently I began to understand how deep and numerous the screenplay’s intricacies were. One most certainly being that the name of the ships that are sent to the Sun in the film is more than just a novelty. Their designated names, Icarus I and II, assist in reflecting an overall message of power hunger and the danger of curiosity. Icarus is a commonly known character in Greek mythology. King Minos exiled him and his father, Daedalus, after Daedalus gave the king’s daughter, Ariadne, a clue in order to help Theseus, the enemy of Minos, survive the Labyrinth and defeat the Minotaur. In attempt to escape their prison on Crete, Daedalus, a fine craftsman, fashions two sets of wings for himself and Icarus out of wax and feathers. Daedalus warns Icarus that they must fly low and short lived in order to preserve the structural integrity of the wax wings from the Sun’s rays. Once in flight, Icarus becomes engrossed by the thrilling experience. Curiosity begins to take hold of his mind and he tests the Fates by flying higher and higher as he gets more invigorated. But, clearly forgetting his father’s forewarning, Icarus fails to take note of his wax wings melting apart and falls to his death in the sea below. Another take by some......

...Dante's threats into a song, " [A]pologise, pull out his eyes, pull out his eyes, apologise." Singing is more than just language, however—it is language transformed by vibrant humanity. Indeed, music appeals to the part of Stephen that wants to live life to the fullest. We see this aspect of music near the end of the novel, when Stephen suddenly feels at peace upon hearing a woman singing. Her voice prompts him to recall his resolution to leave Ireland and become a writer, reinforcing his determination to celebrate life through writing. Flight Stephen Dedalus's very name embodies the idea of flight. Stephen's namesake, Daedalus, is a figure from Greek mythology, a renowned craftsman who designs the famed Labyrinth of Crete for King Minos. Minos keeps Daedalus and his son Icarus imprisoned on Crete, but Daedalus makes plans to escape by using feathers, twine, and wax to fashion a set of wings for himself and his son. Daedalus escapes successfully, but Icarus flies too high. The sun's heat melts the wax holding Icarus's wings together, and he plummets to his death in the sea. In the context of Portrait Of A Artist As A Young Man we can see Stephen as representative of both Daedalus and Icarus, as Stephen's father also has the last name of Dedalus. With this mythological reference, Joyce implies that Stephen must always balance his desire to flee Ireland with the danger of overestimating his own abilities—the intellectual equivalent of Icarus's flight too close to the sun.

The bull symbolized power, male fertility and strength all attributes that have been associated with King Minos a famous ruler of Knossos and step father to the monstrous Minotaur. This piece of artwork supports claims that the bull was a sacred animal for the Minoans as evidenced by other artefacts found at the site. Rituals and religious ceremonies were celebrated in honour of the Bull and they were considered important enough to offer as a sacrifice to the Gods. The relationship between the bull and humans is explored as it could be assumed that to be able to triumph over a bull showed great skill and power on behalf of the boys shown in the artwork. The beautiful wall painting found at the Palace at Knossos gives some insight into who were the Minoans. The wall painting dates back to the Postpalatial period and it depicts young boys playing and preforming acrobatic movements around what seems to be a strong and graceful bull.

He is a very wise craftsman who is known for his construction of the Labyrinth in Crete.

Dante's Beasts

...The Beasts and Monsters in Dante's Inferno  The Inferno is the first section of Dante's three-part poem, The Divine Comedy. Throughout Dante's epic journey into the depths of Inferno he encounters thirty monsters and five hybrid creatures.  The most significant of these monsters are of central importance to his journey and to the narrative, as they not only challenge Dante's presence in Inferno, but are custodians of Hell, keeping in order or guarding the "perduta gente".  In this essay I am concentrating on these prominent beasts, namely Minos, Cerberus, Plutus and Geryon, establishing why they feature in Dante's eschatological vision and discussing the sources which influenced his inclusion of these particular creatures. These four monsters all fulfil important functions as well as representing important themes in Inferno, establishing them as symbols which reinforce Dante's allegory.  Minos, as the infernal judge and agent of God's justice, represents our own conscience and morality.  When the sinners come before him "tutta si confessa", which causes the reader to reflect on their own sins.His terrifying treatment of the souls is significant as after Charon, he is one of the first figures who they encounter on their passage into Hell, and his unique method of demonstrating which area of Hell that the souls should be sent to increases the horror and adds to the alarming atmosphere.  His warning to Dante, is similar to several of the infernal custodians, who continually......

Dantes Inferno- Symbolism

...blinds them wit no hope. It is odd that Alighieri put Virgil, Homer and anyone else who came before ‘God’ in this circle. In the second circle, those considered lustful and wanton are constantly blown about like leaves in the wind. This is an apt punishment because these particular sinners let their uncontrolled emotions rule their judgment, therefore they will never settle. In the second circle, we meet a monster called Minos. He is the son of Zeus and Europa and had been a King of Crete while in the world of the living. It is said of Minos that “His terrifying treatment of the souls is significant as after Charon, he is one of the first figures who they encounter on their passage into hell, and his unique method of demonstrating which area of hell that the souls should be sent to increases the horror and adds to the alarming atmosphere”(Source 1). This is said in reference to Minos wrapping his tail around the soul. Each loop around is one circle further into hell that soul must venture into and endure. However Minos is more than a bouncer for hell. Minos, as the infernal judge and agent of Gods justice, represents our own conscience and morality. In circle three the readers view...

Evans asked where she got it, she repeats “Minos” a lot to him; actually, she meant “The Legend of King Minos”: the wife had bestiality with a bull, people sent people as sacrifices. Legendary King Mino was minotaur. In 1893, Evans began his journey to search of the legendary kingdom of Minos. He went to largest island, Crete, in Mediterranean Sea with couple 1,000 men. He went and paid with own money to search for kingdom of Minos because Evans was very rich. Once he dis, he was arrested with the men because Crete was owned by Turkish empire, Ottoman Turks; they were on foreign soil. He was on his own, not with his country since he paid for the trip himself); he bought his way out of prison by purchasing North East section of the island of Crete. In 1899, he continued the actual dig and spent about 40 years there. Finally, he discovered oldest Greek and European civilizations: “Minoans”. In1936, he wrote a book with 4 volumes.

Don Quixote

...Don Quuixote Don Quixote is a middle-aged gentleman from the region of La Mancha in central Spain. Obsessed with the chivalrous ideals touted in books he has read, he decides to take up his lance and sword to defend the helpless and destroy the wicked. After a first failed adventure, he sets out on a second one with a somewhat befuddled laborer named Sancho Panza, whom he has persuaded to accompany him as his faithful squire. In return for Sancho’s services, Don Quixote promises to make Sancho the wealthy governor of an isle. On his horse, Rocinante, a barn nag well past his prime, Don Quixote rides the roads of Spain in search of glory and grand adventure. He gives up food, shelter, and comfort, all in the name of a peasant woman, Dulcinea del Toboso, whom he envisions as a princess. On his second expedition, Don Quixote becomes more of a bandit than a savior, stealing from and hurting baffled and justifiably angry citizens while acting out against what he perceives as threats to his knighthood or to the world. Don Quixote abandons a boy, leaving him in the hands of an evil farmer simply because the farmer swears an oath that he will not harm the boy. He steals a barber’s basin that he believes to be the mythic Mambrino’s helmet, and he becomes convinced of the healing powers of the Balsam of Fierbras, an elixir that makes him so ill that, by comparison, he later feels healed. Sancho stands by Don Quixote, often bearing the brunt of the punishments that arise from Don......

The zodiac constellations formed an imaginary circle which the sun, moon, and seven of the nine planets orbited in the space, for example the Taurus which symbolizes the bull which describe zeus, and the form he took when he carried off the phoenician maiden, Europa. The other constellations are the constellations located out of the imaginary circle or the "zodiac circle". One example of the constellations are the Canis Major or "Great Dog" which describe several dogs that appeared in many classical myths. One of the story about it is from the book written by Hyginus titled Poetica Astronomica: "He is said to have been given by Jove as a guardian for Europa, and later to have come to Minos. When Minos was ill, Procris, wife of Cephalus, is said to have cured him, and received the dog as a reward for her services, as she was very fond of hunting and the dog was so swift that no beast could escape. After her death the dog came to Cephalus her husband, who brought it to Thebes with him when he came. There was a fox there which was said to be so swift that it could outrun all dogs. So when the two animals met, Jupiter, in a dilemma, as Istrus says, changed them both to stone....

Comparing Gods and Goddesses

.... Comparing Gods and Goddesses HUM/105 June 15, 2011 Comparing Gods and Goddesses Myths are narrative stories that describe the creation of the world and how the first humans came into existence. According to Leonard and McClure (2004), human societies began as goddess-oriented and matrifocal (women-centered). Human societies evolved from primitive beginnings to a superior culture system of patriarchy (Leonard & McClure, 2004, p. 104). Although myths may differ from culture to culture, common elements and roles exist in each myth. In today’s society, myths and legends are fantasy-filled tales from ancient societies long gone. Therefore, Team A will describe the elements and functions of goddess myths, and compare two myths of the female divine from different cultures. Second, the team will describe the elements and functions of god myths, and compare two myths of the male divine from different cultures. Last, the team will summarize the elements and functions shared by both divines. According to the euhemerist Gimbutus, goddesses have three basic roles life, death, and regeneration (Leonard & McClure, 2004, p. 114). The goddesses of life are Mother Earth, nature, sea, and universe. These goddesses are nurturers and overseers of security and contentment, prosperity and growth, and creativity and artistry. The mother earth goddesses are creators of earth and universe, such as Gaia of the ancient Greeks, and Tellus of the Romans. These two Earth goddesses......
