Orpheus
and

Eurydice
Eurydice was
an oak nymph
or one of the
daughters of
Apollo (the god
of light). She
was the wife
of Orpheus.
Orpheus was a
legendary
musician, poet,
and prophet in
ancient Greek
religion and
myth. He has an
ability to charm
all living things
and even stones
with his music.
He was the son of one of
the Muses and a Thracian
prince. His mother gave
him the gift of music and
Thrace where he grew up
fostered it. The Thracians
were the most musical of
the peoples of Greece.
Orpheus
met and
wooed the
maiden he
loved,
Eurydice.
They
were
married,
but their
joy was
brief.
Directly after
the wedding,
as the bride
walked in a
meadow with
her
bridesmaids, a
viper stung
her……
….and
she
died.
Orpheus' grief
was
overwhelming.
He could not
endure it. He
determined to
go down to the
world of death
and try to bring
Eurydice back.
He dared more than any
other man ever dared for
his love. He took the
fearsome journey to the
underworld. There he
struck his lyre, and at
the sound all that vast
multitude were charmed
to stillness.
The dog
Cerberus
relaxed
his
guard……
The ruler of
Hades drew
near to listen
with his queen.
No one under
the spell of his
voice could
refuse him
anything.
They summoned
Eurydice and gave
her to him, but
upon one
condition:
That he
would not
look back at
her as she
followed him,
until they
had reached
the upper
world.
So, the two
passed
through the
great doors of
Hades to the
path which
would take
them out of
the darkness,
climbing up
He knew that
she must be
just behind
him, but he
longed
unutterably to
give one
glance to
make sure.
But now they
were almost
there, the
blackness was
turning gray;
now he had
stepped out
joyfully into
the daylight.
Then he turned
It was too
soon; she was
still in the
cavern. He saw
her in the dim
light, and he
held out his
arms to clasp
her; but on the
instant she was
She had slipped
back into the
darkness. All he
heard was one faint
"Farewell
word, "Farewell."
."
Desperately he tried to
rush after her and follow
her down, but he was not
allowed. The gods would
not consent to his
entering the world of the
dead a second time,
while he was still alive.
He was
forced to
return to the
earth alone,
in utter
desolation.
Then he
forsook the
company of
men.
He wandered through the
wild solitudes of Thrace,
comfortless except for his
lyre,
playing, always playing, and
the rocks and the rivers and
the trees heard him gladly,
his only companions.
But at last a band of
Maenads [women] came
upon him....
They slew the gentle
musician, tearing him limb
from limb,…
…borne along past the
river's mouth on to the
Lesbian shore; nor had
it suffered any change
from the sea when the
Muses found it and
buried it in the
sanctuary of the island.
His limbs
they
gathered and
placed in a
tomb at the
foot of
Mount
Olympus, …
….and there to this
day the nightingales
sing more sweetly
than anywhere else.
