An anonymous creature made love with her and due to the darkness; she was unable to see the creature. She then started to look forward to it, and the creature started to come to her every night but leaves before the sun rises. Psyche’s sisters pressured her to spy on the creature, whom they thought was a monster, by bringing a dagger and a lamp. One night, while Cupid was asleep, Psyche turned on the lamp and prepared the dagger to strike Cupid, but she saw the most attractive creature she has ever seen. Psyche unintentionally hurt herself with Cupid’s arrow that later resulted to a deeper passion.

One of the Disney company's movies was the story of Hercules the Ancient mythological warrior who was the son of Jupiter. The movie made $ 252,712,101 in 1997. Today some of our buildings are even influenced by the designs of the temples once built to worship the mythical gods and goddesses. Any religions worshiped today started as a myth or a story of how we got here. This has caused many wars and no one knows which is right or if any of them are right, but we still worship and pray to the god or gods we believe in and it helps to fill in the answers to all the questions we have.
Overall Meaning and Significance of the scene: Ophelia was driven mad by the death of her father Polonius and how Hamlet betrayed her love with his own wave of madness which was just an act. In her madness, Ophelia talks about her father and his death and about the “Tricks in the world” (terrible things that happen to people). Ophelia’s madness was also the extent of her being used by her father so he could spy on Hamlet to see if he was truly crazy and then by Hamlet when he claimed he no longer loved her and that he didn’t send her any letters (remembrances). Ophelia’s speech and her fragments of songs are unsensible. Her song was about her father’s death “He is gone, He is gone” (4.5.220), and a maiden who is tricked into losing her virginity with a false promise of love and the possibility of marriage.
Hamlet also told her to go to a nunnery which means a brothel for prostitutes so he was calling her a prostitute. After he said those wretched things he yelled at her to leave quickly and then he said farewell. After that she leaves and says to herself he promised to marry me, he is dead and gone. The next day Ophelia drowns herself in the river over the guilt and sadness she had over Hamlet not loving her and Hamlet killing her father. (Doc.
Upon seeing this, a servant goes to fetch the king and Jason, and when he saw his daughter, King Creon collapses helplessly on the body, and as a result died from the same poisons. Jason returns to the place where Medea is staying and insists to see his children. But he is too late, as Medea has killed them as well. Her reasoning was that she hates Jason more than she loves her children. The sheer cruelty of this scene illustrates Euripides’ point that a clever woman with enough time to hatch a plan is a very dangerous woman indeed.
Eddie's Violent End in J.B. Priestley's A View From the Bridge Eddie is referred to as a tragic hero. Another example of a tragic hero is Oedipus. Oedipus left home at an early age, as the gods were displeased with his mother. She had performed sins in the eyes of the laws. Upon Oedipus' return his mother, without realising his true identity, fell desperately in love with him.
In doing so she accidentally dropped a little hot oil on the sleeping god causing him to awaken. Her disobedience caused her to lose the "true" love in her life. In Psyche's search for Eros she undertakes a series of cruel and difficult tasks set by Aphrodite in hopes of winning him back. After many trials and tribulations Eros could no longer witness her suffering and he appealed their case to the gods.
However, when Cupid saw Psyche he fell in love with her. Every night, Cupid made love to Psyche without ever revealing his identity until one night she lit a lamp to look at him. When Cupid found out his identity was revealed, he fled. Psyche spent numerous days searching for her lost love. Venus, still jealous of Psyche’s beauty, ordered her to do many things in hope of eliminating her.
But their mothers Hera and Rhea hid them and gave Cronus and Saturn a rock in baby clothing. When Zeus and Jupiter had reached maturity they returned and defeated their fathers releasing their siblings. That is really where the similarities end though. Zeus was a total pervert. He was the illegitimate father of many children but not only with other goddesses but with mortals.
