    Pandora: The Destruction of Mankind In Hesiod’s myths Theogony and Work and Days, the formation of the female species is created. Both myths illustrate how the new female species is the doom for mankind. Pandora is a figure used by Hesiod to explain how females first came to be.

    Theme Development in The Crucible The Crucible by Arthur Miller is a historical play, but more importantly a social and psychological drama. The various ways the themes are developed through The Crucible are through characters, plot, setting and dialogue. The importance of the witch-trials is, according to Raymond Williams, that in them 'the moral crisis of a society is explicit, is directly enacted and stated, in such a way that the quality of the whole way of life is organically

    The Greek Attitude Towards Women as seen in the Works of Hesiod Hesiod leaves no doubt that the existence of women is on balance a terrible thing for men. Zeus ordered Hephaistos to create women as a punishment for his having been decieved.. Women were to be a poisoned gift for men, which "all shall take to their hearts with delight, an evil to love and embrace" (W&D, 57-59). In the Theogony women are called "a great plague" because they are "ill-suited to Poverty’s curse, but suited to Plenty"

    The name Pandora means “all-gifted”. Pandora is known as the first human women created by the gods.

They made her by casting gifts for her, such as beauty, and

    This paper will take this other conjecture, the myth of Pandora, first woman of the Greek creation myth, as its point of departure, not only to offer a feminized version of the primal scattering of languages, but to rewrite in a positive light and therefore also toreverse the negative and misogynist association of Pandora with "man’s" fall. But, rather than exposing the entrenched patriarchal bias in mythographers’ interpretations of Pandora, my foremost aim is to pose, through her figure, questions

    as king of the gods, providing one of the first characterizations of his temperament, and second, it serves as a mode of explanation for those evils in the world which plague mankind. Caught between the “Birth of the Olympians” and the story of Pandora, lines 509-572 of Theogony, serve as an intermediary to enhance its preceding and subsequent stories. The “Birth of the Olympians” is the first introduction of Zeus into Hesiod’s world, beginning as “Rheia… was about to give birth to Zeus our father…”

    enable her to torment mankind. They named her Pandora. Pandora was given a gift of a box filled with all the evils in the world and was told not to open it. What does she do? She opens it. And released all the evils into the world, hope alone remained in the box. Aeschylus, on the other hand, uses the figure of Io as a sweet, innocent woman who was tormented by the gods and whose ancestor will free Prometheus one day. He doesn’t even mention Pandora and the punishment of mankind. Io refused to

The place is somewhat like the way the world was before Pandora opened the box for it is full of children with glowing faces that reflect nothing but sheer happiness. The truth remains that they have had a horrible past or that they know that they have missed out a lot of things in life but they keep all the pain
