  • Greek Mythology and Literature and the Gods' Incestuous Relationships

    A 7 page essay on the incestuous relationships reported in Greek mythology and Greek plays. The writer lists a number of incestuous relationships between Zeus, his brothers and sisters and progeny, and also gives examples from and commentary on plays such as Oedipus Rex, Medea and Agamemnon in support of the thesis. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Greek Mythology, Hesiod’s Five Ages of Man, and the Story of Zeus and Other Olympic Deities

    In five pages this paper compares Hesiod’s Five Ages of Man with Ovid’s Four Ages of Mankind creation myth; and also compares and contrasts the story of Zeus with Olympic deities Poseidon and Hades in order to examine why their interactions with Zeus and stories about their origins are important to understanding Greek mythology. Three sources are listed in the bibliography.

  • Eastern and Western Mythology and Women

    6 pages in length. The treatment of women in Indian mythology compared with that of Greek and Roman mythology proves to be not all that different from one another. Women, in general mythological terms, are primarily in existence to act as man's servant, both menially and sexually. To go so far as to say their treatment is barbaric, particularly in Greek and Roman mythology, would not be making an extreme statement. Indian mythology, on the other hand, utilizes the poor treatment of women in a slightly more domestic manner without the severity of physical harm so prevalent in Western mythology. The writer compares the treatment of women as it relates to Eastern and Western mythology. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Timai, Aphrodite and Demeter's Homeric Hymns

    A 5 page assertion that these Homeric Hymns are exemplary of one particular stage in the evolution of the way the world viewed gods, religions, and mythologies. Contends that not only do these hymns provide a primary source of information about Greek religion and belief, their primary purpose is to explain how timai (power) was obtained by the Olympians. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Ancient Greek Women and the Effects of Medicine, Law, and Architecture

    A 12 page investigation into the lives of ancient Greek women as they were impacted by architecture, law and medicine. Exactly how these factors interacted to shape a woman’s life, however, is largely a matter of conjecture. Because most of Greek history was dominated by male authors, we must turn to other aspects of Greek culture to glean hints as to how a woman interacted in this male-dominated world. Bibliography lists 15 sources.
