  • Completed in AD 8, it is recognized as a
    masterpiece of Golden Age Latin literature. The
    most-read of all classical works during the
    Middle Ages, the Metamorphoses continues to exert
    a profound influence on Western culture.

  • In Greek mythology, the Labyrinth (Greek
    ?aß??????? labyrinthos) was an elaborate
    structure designed and built by the legendary
    artificer Daedalus for King Minos of Crete at
    Knossos. Its function was to hold the Minotaur,
    a creature that was half man and half bull and
    was eventually killed by the Athenian hero
    Theseus. Daedalus had made the Labyrinth so

Minos Troubles

    (Minotaur, half bull, half human monster)
  • 2. He kept Daedalus in prison so that the secret

    built for King Minos of Crete and designed by the
    architect Daedalus and his son Icarus who were

Golden mean (philosophy)
  • In philosophy, especially that of Aristotle, the
    golden mean is the desirable middle between two
    extremes, one of excess and the other of
    deficiency. For example courage, a virtue, if
    taken to excess would manifest as recklessness
    and if deficient as cowardice.

Beauty Truth
  • To the Greek mentality, it was an attribute of
    beauty. Both ancients and moderns realized that
    there is a close association in mathematics
    between beauty and truth. The poet John Keats, in
    his Ode on a Grecian Urn, put it this way
  • "Beauty is truth, truth beauty," -- that is
    allYe know on earth, and all ye need to know.

three 'ingredients' to beauty
  • The Greeks believed there to be three
    'ingredients' to beauty symmetry, proportion,
    and harmony. This triad of principles infused
    their life. They were very much attuned to beauty
    as an object of love and something that was to be
    imitated and reproduced in their lives,
    architecture, Paideia and politics. They judged
    life by this mentality.

The Axial Ageall great minds run in the same
  • In Chinese philosophy, a similar concept,
    Doctrine of the Mean, was propounded by
    Confucius Buddhist philosophy also includes the
    concept of the middle way.
  • German philosopher Karl Jaspers coined the term
    the axial age (Ger. Achsenzeit, "axistime") to
    describe the period from 800 to 200 BCE, during
    which similar revolutionary thinking appeared on
    a global scale.

The Great BearThe constellation of Ursa Major
has been seen as a bear by many distinct
Transformation of the Great Bear
  • In Greek mythology, Zeus (the king of the gods)
    lusts after a young woman named Callisto, a
    nymph of Artemis. Hera, Zeus' jealous wife,
    transforms the beautiful Callisto into a bear.
    Callisto, while in bear form, later encounters
    her son Arcas. Arcas almost shoots the bear, but
    to avert the tragedy, Zeus hurls them both into
    the sky, forming Ursa Major.

Wagoner Astronomy the northern constellation
  • Auriga is a constellation in the northern sky.
    Its name is Latin for 'charioteer' and its stars
    form a shape that has been associated with the
    pointed helmet of a charioteer.

  • as a chariot and its driver. The driver is often
    represented as a shepherd, usually with a goat
    flung over his left shoulder (due to the
    resemblance of that area to a lump), with two
    kids nearby.

  • Artemis (Greek (nominative) ??teµ??, (genitive)

Function of allusion
  • M. H. Abraham defined allusion as "a brief
    reference, explicit or indirect, to a person,
    place or event, or to another literary work or
    passage". It is left to the reader or hearer to
    make the connection (Fowler) where the
    connection is detailed in depth by the author, it
    is preferable to call it "a reference".
