How Is Apollo Created
Have you ever wondered how the world was created? Well, the gods and goddess of old created it.
The titan Chaos gave birth to Ghea, Earth and she filled the void. She gave birth to the first titans
and they gave birth to the second generation of gods. There were always twelve chief gods with the
most power and fame. The gods had many powers ranging from minute to huge. My god was one of
the twelve chief gods and he had an immense amount of power. My god is Apollo or Phoebus,
bright. He is the god of light, prophecy, truth and music. Apollo has a large family, an extraordinary
history,beautiful features and amazing festivals and celebrations.
The god Apollo had a very large family including his parents, siblings, lovers, and offspring. First,
his parents were Zeus, god of lightning, and Leto, a titan goddess. He had a twin sister, Artemis,
goddess of the hunt. He had many lovers like the nymph Daphne, Princess Coronis, huntress Kyrene
and youth Hykinthos.By far he desired Daphne the most. He had three children, Asclepius and
Troilus the heroes and the legend musician Orpheus. In the end, Apollo had an exceptionally big
family.

Apollo Greek God Research Paper
Every human being has within him an ideal man, just as every piece of marble contains in a rough
state a statue as beautiful as the one that Praxiteles the Greek made of the god Apollo.Greek myth is
comprised of many Gods and Goddesses and the stories of how they came to be and of their life
stories. And this is the story of the God apollo One God that caught my eye was Apollo, was
associated with many aspects of life in the time of the Greek gods. Apollo's father was Zeus, the
king of the gods. Zeus, though married to Hera, had some problems with fidelity. He impregnated
Leto, the daughter of a Titan.When he was four days old, he asked Hephaestus to make him silver
bows and arrows. Hephaestus created them for him. Apollo was ... Show more content on

Apollo became more like his father zeus which they were both drawing to woman but unlike his
father Apollo always want more. At it said in this ancient greek quote " Once, a long, long time ago,
all people had four legs and two heads. And than the gods threw down thunderbolts and split
everyone into two. Each half then had two legs and one head. But the separation left both sides with
a desperate yearning to be reunited. Because they each shared the same soul. And ever since then, all
people spend their lives searching for the other half of their soul." And in that quote my intention
was that i felt that quote may have describe what apollo was yearning to have which was love. As
may of us in modern day life may also be searching for , and it is also believed that gods were just
like mortals with the same humanity as some but just immortal forever. In the eyes of ancient Greek
mythology the gods are depicted so much like us. In which we share Pain and love, hand in

Female Suffering In Shakespeare Essay
Female Suffering The objectification of female suffering is a common theme among plays. While
female suffering serves to represent an aesthetic purpose in tragedies and dramas, this leads to
female characters being objectified. Shakespeare brings out the absurdity of female objectification
for aesthetic purposes in his play Titus Andronicus through the suffering of Lavinia as her pain is
equated to scenes of nature, despite being brutally raped and mutilated. While in the
Metamorphoses, Ovid uses female suffering as an aesthetic tool in stories like "Io and Jove" and
"Apollo and Daphne" to further the beauty in the myths. Overall, Shakespeare critiques Ovid's use
of the aesthetic prerogative to represent female suffering through themes of nature by highlighting
the absurd juxtapositions between the two. While Shakespeare's character Lavinia is not literally
transformed into an object, her suffering is compared to landscape scenes. When she gets raped by
Demetrius and Chiron, they rob her of all agency as they cut off her tongue and chop off her hands
so ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
In "Io and Jove," Io is transformed into a cow. Ovid remarks that "even as a heifer she was lovely, /
Great Juno – grudgingly – praised the cow's beauty" (Ovid 1.27). As Io suffers, Ovid writes how
beautiful she is as a heifer. The juxtaposition Ovid makes between aesthetic suffering and nature is
different than Shakespeare in that Io actually gets turned into a cow, while Lavinia stays a human
and is just compared to a fountain as she bleeds out. The aestheticizing of female suffering does not
seem as odd in the Metamorphoses as it does in Titus Andronicus partly because the Metamorphoses
is full of myths, gods, and transformations. The details of her transformation in the story is just to
aestheticize her as a cow, instead of highlighting the absurdity in the

While female suffering serves to represent an aesthetic purpose in tragedies and dramas, this leads to female characters being objectified. Shakespeare brings out the absurdity of female objectification for aesthetic purposes in his play Titus Andronicus through the suffering of Lavinia as her pain is equated to scenes of nature, despite being brutally raped and mutilated. While in the Metamorphoses, Ovid uses female suffering as an aesthetic tool in stories like "Io and Jove" and "Apollo and Daphne" to further the beauty in the myths. Overall, Shakespeare critiques Ovid's use of the aesthetic prerogative to represent female suffering through themes of nature by highlighting the absurd juxtapositions between the two. While Shakespeare's character Lavinia is not literally transformed into an object, her suffering is compared to landscape scenes. When she gets raped by Demetrius and Chiron, they rob her of all agency as they cut off her tongue and chop off her hands so ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... In "Io and Jove," Io is transformed into a cow. Ovid remarks that "even as a heifer she was lovely, / Great Juno – grudgingly – praised the cow's beauty" (Ovid 1.27). As Io suffers, Ovid writes how beautiful she is as a heifer. The juxtaposition Ovid makes between aesthetic suffering and nature is different than Shakespeare in that Io actually gets turned into a cow, while Lavinia stays a human and is just compared to a fountain as she bleeds out. The aestheticizing of female suffering does not seem as odd in the Metamorphoses as it does in Titus Andronicus partly because the Metamorphoses is full of myths, gods, and transformations.

Both males and females are expected to act, dress, and do certain things that the opposite sex normally would not do.

If a man or a woman desires to act or dress as the opposite sex, they should be able to without being humiliated or shamed. Society has too many expectations and regulations that people have to follow in order to fit in or be considered "normal". No one should be shamed for how they want to feel or act.

  • 11. Daphne, A Naiad-Nymph Of The River Peneus Daphne was a Naiad–Nymph of the river Peneus in Thessalia and the daughter of the river god Peneus. Nymphs were female spirits of the natural world and crafters of nature's beauty, from the growing of the trees and flowers to the formation of wetlands, brooks, grottos, and springs. (Atsma) Her father, the river god Peneus, was tried several times because Daphne would not accept any of the handsome, eligible young men who wanted her. Her father would scold her by saying, "Am I never going to have a grandson?" which Daphne would answer with "Father, dearest, let me be like Diana.". (Hamilton 119) Her father would surrender from these conversations and let her off into the woods, which she had the freedom to do what she desired. Daphne became like Diana, also known as Artemis, by living as a perpetual virgin and a wild huntress. Daphne is said to have been Apollo's first love, but it turned out to be a one–sided love. One day, Eros, the god of love, was taunted by Apollo, the god of prophecy, when he told Eros to leave bows and arrows to those who were more capable of using them after he defeated Python. (L.Roman and M.Roman 130) Eros wanted revenge and decided to shoot Apollo and Daphne with arrows that had opposite reactions.

For Ovid, love was all the more regularly saw as an unsafe, destabilizing power than a positive one. Ovid exhibits that love has power over everybody – mortals and gods alike. Nobody can maintain a strategic distance from its belongings, or oppose the threat and wretchedness to which love frequently drives us. Indeed, even The God of Death, Pluto, is moved by love. Love overpowers reason and ethical quality: a person in love may be urgently attracted to a sibling, a father, or even a bull. The transformations in Metamorphoses frequently take after from the interests or the impacts spurred on by love (Metamorphoses I, 240–285). The power of love to metamorphosize can be as quotidian as pregnancy – ladies' shapes and parts change because of being impregnated, a typical aftereffect of a love relationship – and as fabulous as inhuman transformation. Jove goes up against the shape of a bull, in his assault of Europa, keeping in mind the end goal to satisfy his desire; Apollo changes into his beloved's sister with a specific end goal to get to her.

  • 21. Lysander's Masculinity In 'The Disappointment' The 17th century provides a treasure trove of literary greatness. The authors cultivated such a tight circle so that everyone's work kept in dialogue. Aphra Behn uses her poem, "The Disappointment," as an opportunity to respond to common tropes found in male–authored writing. In lines 111–140, Behn dismantles Lysander's masculinity in "The Disappointment" through comparisons to figures from Greek mythology, thus creating situational irony around his character's ego. In stripping Lysander of "all his awful fires" (ll. 113) in this selection, Behn reveals Lysander's true feelings of impotence and, by extension, women. Behn immediately ties Lysander to a warrior, a traditionally masculine figure, with his name. Lysander refers to the Spartan admiral in Greek mythology. Lysander's name undermines his masculinity because the fierce and aggressive reputation of the Spartan culture does not align with Lysander's sexual performance. Behn uses this identification to make him seem like he is an ideal romantic partner, but she describes him as "[the] god of her desires,/ Disarmed of all his awful fires/ And cold as flowers bathed in the morning dew." (ll. 112–114) Behn refers to Lysander as a god and foreshadows the connections to other Greek figures later on in the selection. The "fires" Behn mentions represent Lysander's sexual passion. He is "disarmed" of them and bathes in "the morning dew," which is a euphemism for his premature ejaculation. He is fiery, passionate beforehand, and ashamed of himself after. Impotence is a negative quality and does not fit the typical image of masculinity. Behn uses his impotence and Cloris's beauty to make allusions to mythological figures to provide further insight into their characters. After he proves to be impotent, Cloris runs away. Behn explains, "Like lightning through the grove she hies,/ Or Daphne from the Delphic god." (ll. 121–122) Behn hyperbolizes Cloris's speed by comparing it to "lightning" emphasizes the chimerical tone in these final stanzas.

Apollo is a unique god because he acts the most human, is one of the most powerful gods, and has a terrible love life.

He glowed and shimmered like the sun and at laurel leaves in his hair. He's also the patron of bachelors, so he's had quite a few lovers (James). Apollo's the most human out of the Olympians. He acts on urges and feelings like most people do. His origin story is where most of these feelings take root. As mentioned briefly in the previous paragraph, Apollo was born on the island of Delos to the Titan Leto and the king of the gods Zeus. Hera was furious when she found out that Leto was pregnant with twins, so she told all the lands that were rooted to the earth that they would be cursed if they sheltered Leto, and she held back her daughter Eileithyia, who's the goddess of childbirth, from going and helping Leto in her labor.

Overcome by Cupid's arrow, Apollo sets aside reason and becomes engulfed by his hope of attaining his love. Before being transformed, Apollo would most likely have paid little or no attention to Daphne, but now, Apollo is overcome by his lust for beauty. Ovid compares Apollo's love for Daphne to a flame in a brush. This metaphor used by Ovid is very effective. The change that goes through Apollo is very sudden and fast. The imagery of a flame rapidly spreading through brush conveys the idea of an almost violent change. The god is consumed with a desire for the girl. His chase is fueled by a hope to overcome the ultimate futility of his actions. He sees every part of her as beautiful, her eyes, hair, face and even speculates as to the beauty of her hidden regions. Unsatisfied by the sight of Daphne and wanting more than just a glimpse of her beauty, Apollo follows Daphne as a hound chases a rabbit. The hope for his fruitless love keeps Apollo close on Daphne's trail, and fear motivates Daphne to stay just out of reach. When Ovid tries to convey the intensity of the flight, he says, 'He gave the fleeing maiden no respite, but followed close on her heels, and his breath touched the locks that lay scattered on her neck,';(p. 43) Finally, burdened by mortal exhaustion, Daphne prays to her father to deliver her from her torment.

This in turn allows for the idea of change to be expressed because of its presence. In the myth, Callisto was turned into a bear after being caught pregnant (after being raped) by Diana and company because she didn't want to go in the water with them. Her transformation was sparked by her unchosen loss of purity and the anger of her friends in doing so. Ovid illustrates this scene by saying: "...So the others/Stripped her and saw the truth. She stood in terror/Trying to move her hands to hide her belly/'Be off!' Diana cried, 'this pool is holy/Do not pollute it!' And the girl was banished" (2.461–465). Ovid's use of the word, "terror," embedded deep emotion into the text; created a serious tone for the scene; and established the sense of vulnerability, humiliation, and shame Callisto must have felt when standing before her friends. The harshness of Diana's words to Callisto symbolize the standard thought of society on the idea of purity at the time, and can also add to the reader's understanding on how Callisto must have felt when her purity was taken away from her because those were her morals too.

The Humphries 's ' The Metamorphoses ' In The Metamorphoses, Ovid depicts an entire range of human nature in his myths, such as love, hatred, jealousy and pride; each of which lead to reckless and illogical behavior. Many different forms of human nature are displayed, but the outcome is always consistent. The transformations that result are not unpredictable, but serve to reveal the true character of the persons involved. Ovid's view of human nature is one where humans and gods alike succumb to their emotions, which then leads to a transformation for the worse. In the introduction, Humphries claims Ovid's work is a series of love poems, displaying love's great power. He argues that although Ovid's work can become a bit sadistic, Ovid's love "for this daedal earth, its people, its phenomena" are what fuel his writing, thus showing his fascination with human nature (vii). Humphries also argues that Ovid's poems of hate are used for contrast to the ones about love. He goes on to say Ovid's ability to capture a scene through detail proves how powerful his fantasy writing is, "The great virtue of this writer of fantasy, of improbable events, is that both his people and places are real, the landscape and motives credible, so that, in the end, the impossible event takes on the truth of symbol, becomes–of course!

  • 41. Roman Gods Were Known For Their Outrageous Behavior Roman gods were known for their outrageous behavior. Ovid's Metamorphoses satirically portrays the gods during their episodes of bad behavior. In the tale "Apollo and Daphne" Ovid focuses on the despicable nature of the god Apollo as he attempts to capture the nymph Daphne in order to have sex with her. This is especially shocking as Daphne has chosen to remain a virgin for the entirety of her life. Apollo's lust for Daphne is shown to have terrible effects. She becomes objectified and is stripped of her humanity. The gods played a major role in Roman society, acting as leaders and guides. Ovid's work shows that the people are putting their trust in the wrong hands. The brash nature of the gods makes them unfit to be worshipped. When Apollo nears Daphne she becomes afraid and attempts to flee him to preserve her chaste values. Apollo follows her beginning a chase. As Daphne flees the narrator compares the event to a hunt "Thus lamb flees wolf, thus dove from eagle flies / on trembling wings, thus deer from lioness" (Ovid lines 798–799). Apollo is compared to predatory animals because he has become a sexual predator. Daphne runs because of her desire to preserve her virginity. Even though Apollo is aware of this his fervent desire overpowers his self– control. He is also compared to that of a lowly animal because he has taken on animal like tendencies.

  • 49. The Role Of Violence In Apollo And Daphne By Daphne The desires of sex and love, power, and respect lead to victims of violence, self–inflicted or otherwise, who are trapped in a corner where either death or transformation are the only forms of escape. Sexual desire is one of the biggest forces influencing the gods to commit acts of violence. In heterosexual relationships, where one party is of divine nature, they suggest that violence is in the form of a chase, ultimately leading to rape. Through this, the reader finds himself in the world of the primitive hunting instincts of man. In the story of Apollo and Daphne, Daphne was Apollo's first love not by coincidence, but by the work of Cupid. The irony behind the function of Cupid is how violence is used to gain love. Arrows are often used for hunting to kill animals, yet here weapons, violence, and assault are used as the tools of desire. Cupid shot Apollo, causing him to lust after Daphne and Daphne got shot with the arrow causing her to be put off by the idea of love. Daphne originally was a hunter, as she loved to hunt and called it "joy to roam within the forest's deep seclusion" (1.658–659). As Apollo lusts after Daphne, the role reversal of hunter and prey is seen. Daphne no longer assumes the role of the hunter as she desperately flees like "the lamb flees wolf, thus dove from eagle flies on trembling wings, thus deer form lioness, thus any creature flees its enemy" (1.698–700). Apollo then makes the claim that he is "stalking her because of love" (1.701). Through ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

By Ovid's standards, as well as the men of Romeo and Juliet, any woman should be appreciative of the attention, and equally desire physical affection. Men are to be worshiped by women as gods. One such god that feels this way is Apollo in Book I of Metamorphoses. Apollo is flabbergasted that any woman would run away from him and believes Daphne is only evading him because she is unaware who he is and desirable qualities he posses; being the egotistical maniac he is, Apollo goes on to list all of these qualities (Ovid 19).

Bootless speed when cowardice pursues and valor flies" and "We cannot fight for love as men may do, we should be wooed and were not made to woo", this means she knows it is not modest of her to try woo Demetrius. She knows that it is a man who chases the woman, not the other way around.

Prometheus had a brother named Epimetheus who was tasked to provide for man and all other animals with the necessary faculties for their lives. Epimetheus gave gifts to different animals such as wisdom, courage, strength, and swiftness, and a variety of physical aspects. However when it came to Man, Epimetheus ran out of gifts to bestow upon Man because he used them all up on the other animals. So Epimetheus turned to Prometheus and asked for his aid.

The power of love can be overwhelming in the sense of obsession or consumption of the whole self, resulting in destructive consequences for the victims of that power. The stories written by Ovid will be explored in the light of how the lack of trying to control the powerful nature of love will result in a transformation of the mind, changing sanity and common sense to reckless irrational reasoning. Ovid warns what love without moderation usually results in tragedy yet is also necessary in life. Ovid's tale of "Apollo and Daphne" presents love to have the ability to replace reason with obsession. The deity Apollo confronted the god Cupid, putting him down by boasting about his own glory. Cupid, the god of love, is very aware of how cruel his power can be. He knew that passion unreturned is one of the most destructive weapons one can possess. Apollo was punished and struck with the golden arrow which will give him overwhelming desire for someone who he can never have, Daphne. "This love was not the fruit of random chance: what fostered it was Cupid's cruel wrath." Apollo's desire for Daphne was a dark chase of false hope, for she rejected all feelings of love.

In this way, one can see that humans are haunted, manipulated, and forced to act in ways that the gods want them to, so that the desires of the gods can be met. The only way for a human, or nymph, to escape the pains of the gods is to be transformed. When speaking of Apollo and Daphne, it is only right to begin with the struggle between Apollo and Cupid.

This sounds familiar to when Cupid told Apollo that he was "far above all creatures" (Ovid 952). Then why did Augustus bring back the empire? Was it to restore order for the good of the people or was it to bring back order to show the power that the emperor has over the city. Reflecting on the story of Apollo and Daphne, Cupid uses his magical powers, not for the betterment of Daphne, but only to better his glory by outwitting and humiliating Apollo at Daphne's expense.

Ovid distinguishes among purposes through his word choice.

In the myth "Daphne," Daphne's transformation into a tree is meant to protect her, but it is more effective at silencing her. Daphne, a young daughter of the river god Penéüs, is transformed into a laurel tree by her father on the banks of his river after a long pursuit by Apollo. While Apollo chases Daphne, Ovid language choices imply a relationship of a hunter and prey between Apollo and Daphne.
