Troy

  1. 1. TroyBy Adele Geras<br />Alejandro Mandujano<br />
  2. 2.
  3. 3. “It’s Greek to Me”<br />“The connection of religion and myth,” referring either or as “untrue” but all depending on how one perceives it. Myth, the body of a story that matter and religion being the fact, if you believe it not. So if that’s the case. Did Gods exists? If so, did and or do they still control our very actions.<br />
  4. 4.
  5. 5. Gods! Gods! Gods!<br />The battle of Troy, due to Ares. The act of love making, due to Aphrodite. Falling in love at first sight, due to Eros. Earthquake, due to Poseidon. Receiving the news for the Gods, from Hermes. Death after death, due to Hades. The one who watches over all of our actions, Zeus. So if we depend on love, war, community, news, and life itself from the Gods. Do they control our every actions.<br />
  6. 6.
  7. 7. Love and Desire<br />“Love and desire are such wonderful subjects” (Geras,163). This theme starts off the whole problem in the city of Troy. Xanthe falls for Alastor, Polyxena for Iason, Iason for Xanthe, Alastor for Marpessa, and Marpessa for Alastor. Are any of these assumed love relationship actually love from the Gods or just a desire of the mortals to want something that someone else already has? In “A Midsummer’s Night Dream,” is a perfect example of this theme. The fact that Demetrius and Lysander, fell for Helena was an effect of the “love juice” was a desire from Helena. But, Lysander and Hermia was actual love between the two.<br />
  8. 8.
  9. 9. Future Use <br />Myth: the body of the story that matters. Every piece of literature you read has its own body that makes it matter to find the theme. The fact that you believe it or not is up to you. Passed on from generation to generation, myths have and always tend to be changed just a bit, to make the story more believable or just more interesting. Helping me understand that literature can be changed to have a deeper meaning.<br />
