First read of 2019. Circe by Madeline Miller, an author who studied the classics.  Circe is a strange nymph, daughter of the Sun god, Helios, the Mightiest of Titans. Circe discovers her power in witchcraft, and Zeus banishes her to a deserted island where she creates a Lioness for company.  We see the #trojanwar #athena , #hermes , #eros , #kratos , #apollo , #cronus , #hera , #persephone , #iris , #aphrodite , #artemis , #gaia , #dedalus , #prometheus , #icarus , #odysseus , #penelope , #telemachus , and many other characters of the Greek mythology, in action. With unforgettable vivid characters, and page-turning suspense, it is a triumph of storytelling, an amazing epic of family rivalries, palace intrigue, love and loss, as well as the Celebration of indomitable female strength in a man's world ❤❤ For one who loves mythological fiction, this will be a wonderful read ♥  #circe #mythologicalfiction #greekmythology #godsandgoddesses #witchcraft #rebellion #exiled #desertedisland #island #strongwoman
Berlin, 2018, captions are hard especially since I can take so many photos in a day and then none for weeks, makes it hard to remember exactly where I was for each image, not that that's important. . . #travel #travelphotography #travelberlin #bnw #bnwphoto #bnwphotography #blackandwhitephotography  #bnwlife #bnwonly #blackandwhiteisworththefight #monochrome #odysseus #odysseusfalls #odysseusabroad #berlinstreetphotography #streetphotography #bnwstreet
Sirens are believed to have a presence pre-Greek origin.  The name can be connected to σειρά (seirá "rope, cord") and εἴρω (eírō "to tie, join, fasten"), possibly resulting in the meaning one who binds through magic song. They are always represented as women according to Christianic beliefs in the medieval era to symbolize evil and temptation.  This had a correlation with prostitution and how men were lured in and forgot their pursuits.  In Greek mythology, sirens are mentioned in the Odyssey, fated to die if a man can resist the temptation to follow their beautiful singing.  Odysseus was curious as to what the sirens would sing to him so he had his seamen cover their ears and tie him to the mast of his ship.  Thus he survived and they flung themselves into the sea and died. . . . #siren#sirens#muchadoaboutmythology#mythology#greek#pagan#christianity#medivevalera#mediveval#temptation#pregreek#odyssey#odysseus#sings#beautiful#lure#art#sketch#drawing#fish#lady#also#noted#as#half#bird#related#mermaid#harpy#moreyouknow

Have you ever tried reading with someone else? Its an absolute rush!!! Reading and listwning to this book with my girlfriend is so enlightening #theodyssey #homer #odysseus #reading #penguinclassics #deluxeedition
New #semester @olds.college means new locations to study in. Nothing like @cafegravity coffee when writing about Leopold's "The ethical land". Great essay from 1949 (sadly still relevant today) on man's view of #land, #flora and #fauna solely in terms of economic value. Nothing like a little #odysseus comparison to get the brain going!  #coffee #college #wut #aldoleopold #ecologicalconscience #postwarawakening #environment #landpyramid #foodchain

This week the @mythbusters Jr team gets to bust a Myth of Homeric proportions as they try to beat the Archers Paradox and replicate Odysseus winning the hand of Penelope 🏹 💍  Shooting bows and arrows... designing automated firing mechanisms... building epic battle axes with Aaron Mattia... As an archer and an engineering, to say that I L❤️VED this myth would be the understatement of the century!! Make sure to tune into @sciencechannel tonight at 9pm ET for Episode 3 of #mythbustersjr to see these arrows fly! 🏹 📸: @hapa_matt
Odysseus journeys to the Underworld. The beginning of a long journey. The first page of Ezra Pound's long poem, from the first Faber and Faber edition of the first section.  #ezrapoundcantos  #ezrapoundpoetry  #odysseus  #theodyssey  #odyssey #homer #ancientgreekpoetry #longjourney #fragment  #fragmenta  #faberandfaber  #ancientgreece #ancientgreek #translation  #english #beingandtime  #theoriginoftheworkofart
È stato il mio primo incontro con Margaret Atwood: amore a prima riga! Innanzitutto, ho trovato interessante l'idea di dare voce a un personaggio ingiustamente di contorno come Penelope. Nel raccontare quei lunghi venti anni dell'Iliade e dell'Odissea dal punto di vista di chi era macerato dall'attesa, la Atwood ci mostra le profondità più recondite, i pensieri più segreti della celebre regina di Itaca, dando vita ad un personaggio incredibilmente moderno, in un'attualizzazione inaspettata della stessa Odissea. Non mancano i riferimenti al XXI secolo, anzi, la Atwood crea un ponte tra l'età di Penelope e la nostra, mostrandone implicitamente le spaventose somiglianze: "per quanto il mio accesso al mondo sia limitato, ho capito che i pericoli sono pari a quelli dei miei tempi, ma la miseria e la sofferenza sono molto più estese. Quanto alla natura umana è, come sempre, infame". Nel suo dar voce ai dimenticati, la Atwood fa cantare anche le dodici ancelle di Penelope che furono impiccate da Odisseo per aver giaciuto coi Proci. Alcuni hanno visto un accanimento inappropriato nell'attenzione che viene data a questi personaggi in una sorta di "processo contro Odisseo", ma a mio parere non è questo l'intento della Atwood, visto che vengono presentati i motivi (sbagliati) che portarono Odisseo a compiere questo gesto. Anzi, attraverso la loro figura, l'autrice sembra più interessata a focalizzarsi sul fenomeno dello stupro e sul fatto che, spesso, questo non venga punito o riconosciuto in quanto tale. Esemplare, in tal senso, uno dei capitoli finali del romanzo. Ma non dirò di più, non voglio fare spoiler 🤫

I’m still new to the area and I spotted a fun looking #bookstore ..

Ma nel futuro trame di passato  si uniscono a brandelli di presente,  ti esalta l'acqua e al gusto del salato  brucia la mente  e ad ogni viaggio reinventarsi un mito  a ogni incontro ridisegnare il mondo  e perdersi nel gusto del proibito  sempre più in fondo  E andare verso isole incantate, verso altri amori, verso forze arcane, compagni persi e navi naufragate🌊🌹#odysseus #guccini #greece #tbt {Ho dovuto reimpostare la tastiera in greco apposta per scrivere il luogo, mi sono emozionata}

I knew that we where going to have to go by Sirens and that we would lose some men from Scylla and Charybdis. I did not tell my men because they would be to scared and not row the boat to get throw. The element that is showed is super-human deeds because he took charge and he got throw with people getting out alive. #odyssey #odysseus #scylla #charybdis
we came past the sirens and i was sure that everything was going to be ok. but we eventually started getting closer and closer to these rocks. we came and saw this huge whirl pool we moved over on the side and I was sure that we were going to be ok. but then we heard something and this crazy six headed monster began to eat some our men on board. #scary the epic element used here is super-natural agents because the monsters, Scylla and Charybdis are non human creatures and are classified as dangerous monsters #charybdis #scylla #monsters #scary #odysseus #odyssey #men #sea book 12
When I was walking throw hades I saw Elpenor he wanted us to go back and give him a proper burial with the row over his grave. Then I saw my mother I was very confused because she was alive when I left. I also saw Teiresias, Agamemnon, Tityus, Tantalus, Sisyphus, and Heracles. The element showed is catalogue of hosts because he sees a long list of people. Book 11. #odyssey #odysseus #elpenor #hades
we went to hades and i was scared and so was everyone else but Odysseus wasn’t. we made some offerings and prayed and just like that we were in hades, or at least Odysseus. the epic element is the visit to hell because Odysseus and his men went to hell for their journey back home #odysseus #odyssey #journey #brave #egg #hades #zeus book 11
i saw these filthy men come closer and closer to my beautiful house. scared, i prepared a special wine that would make them forget about their past. they care in, like their faces show relief and happiness. i offered them the wine and they accepted quickly and drank it quickly. one man ran away but the others stayed and didn’t wine about the other men at the beach. but they were kinda annoying so i gave them another special wine that turned them into animals. the epic element in this passage is super-natural agents because Circe is an immortal goddess who had items that no mortal would have #odysseus #alcinous #odyssey #journey #brave #men #circe book 10
Aeolus gave we a bag of winds that holds all the west wind. It was helping us get home and Ithaca was in sight, but I was so tied I fell asleep. I did not tell my men that it was a bag of wind and they thought I was taking home treasure for myself. They opened the bag when I fell asleep and it blow us all the way back to Aeolian Island. Aeolus would not help us again so we had to try and get back home with a broken boat. The epic element showed here is setting because the bag of wind blows them all over the ocean and back to Aeolian Island. Book 10. #odyssey #odysseus #aeolus #wind #aeolianislands

Til nytårskuren tog odysseus og jeg vores sidste tur i galla sammen, og om præcis en uge bliver vi aftrådt til civil, hvilket betyder at jeg nu skal sige farvel til min ynglings makker 🐴⚔️ Han bliver savnet!  #kvinderiforsvaret #hesk #gardehusarregimentet #værdatkæmpefor #stamhest69 #odysseus
Sirenler  Yunan  mitolojisinde Sirenler  ya  da Seireneler  adada  yaşadıklarına  inanılan  deniz yaratıklarıdır. Bu yerlerin tamamı uçurumlarla ve kayalıklarla çevrili olarak betimlenmiştir. Buralarda dolaşan denizciler, sirenlerin söylediği şarkıdan  büyülenip gemilerini kayalıklara doğru  sürmüşler  ve  sirenlere  yem  olmuşlardır.  Sirenler,  denizkızlarından  farklı  olarak  iki kuyruğa sahiptirler. Bu yarı insan yarı balık vücutlu insansıların efsaneleri M.Ö. 5,000 yılına kadar dayanır.  ____________________________________________________________ #mitoloji #mitology #greekmitology #türkmitolojisi #iskandinavmitolojisi #mit #mitos  #yaratılış #tanrılar  #myth #tarih #sanattarihi #arkeoloji #archeology #greekstatus #greekart #hesiodos #artofhistory #artofgreek #sanat #heykel #siren #odysseus #odysseia #ship
My daughter is now eight and I thought it's a good age to start exposing her to classics and Greek mythology. After a little research to find the appropriate resources, I chose two books beautifully illustrated by Italian artist Manuela Adreani: Gods and Goddesses of Greek Mythology and The Odyssey. They were both a great success. Ema was captivated by Adreani's tender, magical illustrations and by the stories as well, so many challenges, so much power, so many adventures.  #booklover #books #manuelaadreani #reading #mythology #greekmythology #gods #classics #illustration #journey #hero #homer #odyssey #odysseus #whitestar

Do you ever get the feeling that a book was written for you and you alone? A book so perfectly constructed as to touch your heart and stir your soul and enliven your mind and meet your passions that it could only have been written by someone who was thinking of only you in the most intimate and heart wrenching of ways. And then, in fact, the book feels like this to multiple people. Strangers from all around the world. And thus you and all the people around the world to whom this book is meaningful are actually intimately connected. United by words that all touched our souls in this great οἶνοψ πόντος. One of the (many) quotes I encircled and journaled about from @madeline.e.miller ‘s book is: “But in a solitary life, there are rare moments when another soul dips near yours, as stars once a year brush the earth. Such a constellation was he to me.” And such a constellation is this book now to me. Even if I weren’t deeply obsessed with Homer and the Odyssey and it’s female monsters and Reception studies I think I would still find this book perfection. Her skill at weaving Homer, Hesiod, the Argonautica and more is seamless. And even though I know I could never write like this I also know that that’s ok. Because I don’t have to. Because MM already wrote this for me. And it’s gone straight to the favourites shelf of books that I will re-reading forever. . . . Bonus quote which I adored was her shoutout to Homer: “Humbling women seems to me a chief pastime of poets. As if there can be no story unless we crawl and weep.” . . . #madelinemiller #circe #homer #theodyssey #theiliad #iliad #classicism #classicist #odyssey #receptionstudies #greatbooks #bestbooks2019 #femaleauthors #aussiebookstagrammer #booknerd #feministbooks #bibliophile #recommendedbook #odysseus #bookstagram #readingchallenge #bloomsbury #classicbooks

Odysseus finally after I welcomed him into my home told me his name was Odysseus and he started telling me about his journey. He told me that both Calypso and Circe wanted to marry him but that he wanted to go home and then he started tell me more about his journey and how far he has come. The epic element showed is in media’s res because the story is just going back to the beginning Odysseus is now telling his hole story of his journey. Book 9. #odyssey #odysseus #alcinous #journey
Salva: Latin; to restore. ✨ Words derived from this root: salvage, save, salvation. ✨ “The Odyssey” is a story of saving. Twenty years of wandering both broke and restored something in Odysseus. Journeys always take heroes from home and then back again. Journeys form full circle. And while nothing is the same upon a hero’s return, something inside him or her is saved, no matter how small. ✨ I am so lucky that I got this amazing translation of “The Odyssey” for FREE! @byuhawaii has a wonderful Give and Take Center where you can get free items in exchange for thirty minutes of service. This book caught my eye, and I nabbed it at first chance. #bookstagram #theodyssey #odysseus #classicalliterature #translations #luckyme #bookaddict #booksbooksbooks #bookstagramit #foreverabookworm #bookhoarder #igotthisforfree #giveandtake #agem
the Cyclopes trapped my men and ate about 6 of them #mean and i knew that if we stayed in there none of us would get home so we came up w a dangerous plan and we stabbed Cyclopes in his eye with a stick. it was pretty dangerous plan . the epic element identified here is super-human deeds bc Odysseus is considered a hero who helped free him and his men with a dangerous plan from the Cyclopes. the motif they used here is brains vs brains because they came up with a very clever plan to escape from the Cyclopes #brave #odysseus #yay #dangerous #cyclopes #rip book 9
Euryalus was insulting me and saying I Odysseus does not look like a sportsman. So I picked up a disk bigger then everyone else’s and throw it much feather then everyone else. The epic element shown is super-human deeds because Odysseus throw the disk a lot feather then everyone else. Book 8. #odyssey #odysseus #euryalus
i was called down to sing bc there was a guest joining us and there would b a feast. so i sang a song ab Odysseus and his heroic acts during the Trojan war bc i thought that it would be a good topic but then the guest started randomly crying. the epic element identified here is the division of cantos because demodicus sang a song about the war which was a story #confused #sad #egg #odyssey #odysseus #kyliejenner #helpusgetagoodgrade #alcinous #nausicaa #yay book 8

Waterhouse, “Circe Offering the Cup to Odysseus”, 1891.
DON'T LET THAT HORSE OUT OF THE BARN!  Odysseus, King of Ithaca, got real tired of sitting around on the shores of Troy for ten years and not getting his nut so the guy said "Let's build a horse as a peace offering to the trojans and sail on home". The trojans found the wooden horse on the beach where the Greeks were camped and took it back to their city of impenetrable walls thinking the Greels had abandoned their campaign against Troy. THEY THOUGHT WRONG. At night, the belly of the horse opened up when all of Troy was asleep and opened the gates to the entire Greek army. A most epic pillaging happened to the city and the Trojan War was cemented into the annals of history.  #dankmeme #dankmemes #dank #meme #memes #memethology #godofmemes #godofwar #greece #greek #troy #trojanwar #odysseus #wow #funmemes #chungus #ithaca #horse #trojancondoms
