Greek Myths

Literature is a very broad topic for study. The reason is that different countries have their own literature and famous authors of a certain genre. Literature reflects the culture of a country and people. It was a way to show us what they look like and what kind of people they are. One of the examples of literature reflecting the country is Greek myths written by people in Greece. They are widely known for their famous list of Greek myths and stories written by poets and authors. Even now, people still love to read Greek myths and legends, such as Icarus.

Daedalus fashioned two pairs of wings from wax and feathers for himself and his son. Daedalus was the first to try his wings, but before attempting to escape the island, he warned his son not to fly too close to the sun and not too close to the sea. Overcoming the dizziness caused by the flight, Icarus took off into the sky, but at the same time came too close to the sun, which because of the heat melted the wax. Icarus continued to flap his wings, but soon realized that he had no feathers left and that he only waves his bare hands, and so Icarus fell into the sea and drowned in the area that bears his name today, the Ikarian Sea near Ikaria, an island southwest of Samos.

There was a list of Greek myths from various authors and poets. Some of these myths were very famous. Although there were some that were not widely read by people. Greek authors have created a family tree of some gods who are also associated with humans. The gods even have children from humans who were called demigods. Just like Perseus, Achilles, Aeneas, Helen and many others. Each demigod also has their own stories, including about people who were part of their path. The gods have their own stories too. Some of them were about their successes during the war, as well as about the people who dedicated them. However, Zeus was a very famous god because he had so many different stories even during his unknown birth until he became the God of all gods. Reading the list of Greek myths can be very interesting and very fun.

When we speak of Greek myths, we easily associate it with the bravery of the people in Greece and how devoted they were to the gods. Although perhaps something has changed from the past, their famous stories and myths are still widely read by people. Centuries ago, these books were considered simple literary works of art, but now they are considered one of the most priceless literary works of art, written by various Greek authors.
