Typhon the Terrible
The lyre’s voice is lovely everywhere;
In the courts of gods, in the city of men,
And in the lonely rock-strewn mountain-glen,
In the still mountain air.
Only to Typhon it sounds hatefully;
To Typhon only, the rebel o’erthrown,
Through whose heart Etna drives her roots of stone,
To imbed them in the sea.
Last week, we learned many interesting facts from our Tales of the Greek Heroes, including the origin of Mt. Etna according to Greek Mythology. This week, we will read the adventures of Dionysus and spend time reviewing and analyzing chapters 4-6 through responses and an in-class essay. There will be a quiz this coming Friday, September 11 on chapters 1-6.
