Transcript of Daedalus

By: Milind, Marina, and Farhan The Myth of Daedalus Let's introduce him, shall we? HA HA HA, you thought it was over huh? -Daedalus means"clever worker"
-Son of Metion (descendent of the craftsman God Hephaestus)
-From Athens
-Husband of Nausicrates and father of Icarus
-Highly skilled and respected craftsman and inventor
-Killed his apprentice, his nephew, because he was afraid that the apprentice would be more successful than him (OH A FLAW, wink wink cough cough), and was banished from Athens -Exiled to the island of Crete and put under the service of King Minos
-King Minos orders Daedalus to build the Labyrinth in order to confine the Minotaur
-Later, King Minos's daughter, Ariadne, asks Daedalus to help Theseus defeat the Minotaur by aiding him through the "Great Maze"
-Daedalus gives her thread so that Theseus can find his way out of the Labyrinth
-Theseus kills the Minotaur and leaves Crete with Ariadne
-King Minos is furious because of the loss of his daughter and punishes Daedalus for helping Theseus AND NOW HE'S IN CRETE! ...and here the story divides... -With the wings completed, Icarus and Daedalus fly out of the tower, but before they leave, Daedalus cautions Icarus to stay away from any source of heat, the Sun, as it will melt the wax that holds the wings
-After multiple cautions, Icarus feels that his father is belaboring the point and does not heed Daedalus's advice
-Being the adventurous, naive boy that he is, Icarus dips and soars through the sky and catches the updraft bringing him higher and higher to the sun
-Although Daedalus warns Icarus about the dangers of going too high, Icarus continues flying upward and the wax in his wings melt, and he falls into the ocean with his wings, drowning and leading to his untimely demise I believe I can flyyy...
I believe I can touch the skyyyy NOPE...QUIZ TIME!
hey it'll prepare you guys for finals, right? (;

OK CALM DOWN IT'S JUST 2 QUESTIONS, AND THERE'S A PRIZE!
Ok LEGGOOOOO QUESTION 1: QUESTION 2: THE END Congratulations!!
You won....
Nothing.
ha ha ha. THE CORRECT ANSWER IS... THE CORRECT ANSWER IS... Does Daedalus display flaws? PROVIDE EVIDENCE
oh yeah, that's right. YES. Daedalus shows pride/jealousy
when he kills his apprentice in Athens,
because he did not want the apprentice to
be more successful than he is. Ugh smh... Daedalus Daedalus Icarus Thanks dad! -Multiple accounts of the myth are there and which one is "true" is up to YOU (yes the second person oh nooss (side note it rhymes!!)); however, the endings are very similar
-In one tale, King Minos imprisons Daedalus and Icarus in the Labyrinth and Daedalus conceives the idea of constructing wings in order to escape
-Using feathers from birds and wax, he constructs wings for him and his son to escape from the island
-In another story, King Minos was kind enough to provide the two a room with a view of the Cretan landscape but high enough that Minos's prisoner could not simply leap to freedom
-While looking out of the window to his room, Daedalus was inspired by the flight of the birds outside of his window and stockpiled feathers from pillows that he requested from guards
-Using the wax from candles and the feathers, Daedalus slowly crafted two sets of wings for Icarus and himself to escape from the room
-After several prototypes the wings are ready What values do
the Greeks value based on this myth? ...well technically there can be more than 1 correct answer Greeks value intelligence and also respect:
-intelligence: Daedalus being a great inventor/craftsman,
building the Labyrinth, making the wings, and telling Icarus why he
should not fly close to the Sun
-respect: Icarus does not listen to his father and his consequence
was him...dying. Le Crete SIKE!!! You thought we were actually
going to do that (we actually are) :3 We thought you might need a little
something to answer you questions ;) Le Moral And Modern Day Significance LISTEN TO ONE'S PARENTS!! If one is being reckless and does not listen
to his/her parents, then he/she will face serious consequences.
In terms of Icarus, the mortal (even though warned) through his hubris
and rush to glory - exalts himself -- to his doom.
