Transcript: Atlas The Story of Atlas Atlas sided with the Titans in their war against the Olympians. When the Titans lost many of them were confined to Tartarus, but Zeus condemned Atlas to stand at the western edge of Earth and hold up the sky on his shoulders. Encounter with Heracles One of the twelve labors of Heracles was to fetch some apples which grow in Hera's garden, tended by Atlas' daughters. Heracles went to Atlas and offered to hold up the heavens, while Atlas got the apples from his daughters. Upon his return with the apples, Atlas tried to trick Heracles into holding the sky forever by offering to deliver the apples himself. Heracles, suspecting Atlas did not intend to return, he pretended to agree with the offer. So he asked Atlas to just hold it while he adjusted his shoulder pads.Atlas set the apples down and held the sky, and Heracles took the apples and ran away leaving Atlas with the sky, again.

The Olympian Gods won the war and cast all titans into Tartarus (depths of the Underworld). But Atlas was singled out by Zeus for a special punishment and made to hold up heavens with bare hands and bear their weight on his shoulders forever. Brothers & Sisters Prometheus (Titan god of forethought) Epimetheus (Titan god of afterthought) Menoetius (Titan god of violent anger) Atlas Wife & Kids Heracles had been told that he would never get the apples without the help of Atlas. Atlas was happy to help, since it meant being relieved of his burden. He told Heracles to hold the pillar while he went into the garden of the Hesperides to retrieve the apples. Heracles took the pillar while Atlas went to get the apples. He was successful and returned quickly enough, but in the meantime he had realized how pleasant it was not to have to strain for eternity keeping heaven and earth apart. So he told Heracles that he'd have to fill in for him for an indeterminate length of time. Heracles agreed, But he said that he needed a cushion for his shoulder, and he wondered if Atlas would mind taking back the pillar just long enough for him to fetch one. The Titan graciously obliged, and Heracles strolled off, and never returned. Atlas was married to the titaness Pleione (protectress of sailing) who he had three kids with. Hyades (nymphs of the five stars of the constellation), Hyas (spirit of seasonal rains,) and Pleiades (seven sisters). He was temporarily relieved of this punishment by Heracles, who needed the Titan's help to retrieve the Golden Apples of the Hesperides. http://www.theoi.com/ http://www.greekmythology.com/index.html http://www.theoi.com/Titan/TitanAtlas.html Work cited
