The Mark of Athena
Transcript of The Mark of Athena
The war with Geae is growing and the Greeks need the Roman's help. The only way to get their help is to find the Athena Parthanos. Annabeth is sent in an adventure to save Athens' lost possession.
Themes such as friendship, loyalty, and trust resonate throughout the story. The main theme is hubris and its implications. Hubris is the cause for the main villian, Arachne's downfall. Her story examplifies how self confidence clouds judgment. "'I see no flaw!' she announced"(556). "Arachne wriggled, trying to back up. The woven tunnel contracted around her and held her fast (556).
