Summary Of Events Universal Truth You should listen to what your parents say instead of thinking you know everything The connection that can be made to modern life is that a lot of people don't listen to what their parents say; they just go out and do things and then they pay the price. Daedalus and his son Icarus were on the island of Crete.
They really wanted to get away from Crete because they hated it there.
Daedalus decided to gather up a bunch of feathers and make wings so him and his son could fly away to a different place.
He used wax to make the feathers stick together.
Before they flew away Daedalus told his son, "Whatever you do don't fly too high because the heat of the sun will melt the wax off your wings but don't go too low or you will get caught in the big waves of the sea."
Icarus was so excited that he wasn't even listening.
They flew off into the sky. They looked down at all the people looking up at them. They were so happy.
Icarus started to go higher and higher. His father was screaming up at him to come down. Before he knew it the sun had melted the wax off his feathers and he headed straight for the sea.
He landed in waves and drowned.
A farmer named Brueghel is the only known person who saw this happen. The thing about this story that warramts it's consideration as a significant contribution to world literature is that not only is it an interesting story but it shows a good lesson of what can happen if you don't listen to your parents. One conflict in this story is that they didn't like where they were at.
To fix this problem Daedalus made wings for him and his son so they could fly away. Another conflict was that Icarus didn't listen to his father.
This resulted in death. The narrator of this story is Ovid.
He is credible because there is evidence that his version of the story is the correct version. By Ovid
