Transcript of Flower Myths
Narcisssus, Hyacinth, Adonis Narcissus He was a good-looking man who was incredibly full of himself with a big ego.
He was rude to women who fell in love with him and did not have any consideration for their feelings.
The gods decided to teach him a lesson.
The gods cursed Narcissus so he would fall in love with his reflection.
He saw his reflection in a pool one day, and he never left.
He died by the pool of water and a flower appeared where he was.
The nymphs named this flower the Narcissus. This flower and term are used as symbols for self-centeredness and cold-heartedness. Narcissus Flower Hyacinth Hyacinthus was a young, handsome prince from Sparta.
Both Apollo and Zephyrus were gods that loved Hyacinthus.
One day, Apollo and Hyacinthus were out playing with a discus.
Zephyrus, the god of wind, was incredibly jealous of Apollo and Hyacinthus.
He directed a wind at the discus they were playing with, and it killed Hyacinthus.
Apollo was so upset over his death, he created the flower Hyacinth. Adonis He was a handsome infant.
Aphrodite fell in love with him, so she put him a box and gave him to Persephone to keep in the underworld for safekeeping.
After Persephone saw Adonis, she also fell in love with him.
Persephone refused to give Adonis back to Aphrodite.
To settle this dispute, Zeus decided to split Adonis's time between the two women.
During the spring and summer, Adonis would stay with Aphrodite.
During the fall and winter, he would stay with Persephone in the underworld.
One day, while with Aphrodite, Adonis was killed by a wild boar.
Where his blood fell sprung red flowers, now called Adonis. Work Cited: http://en.cvetq.info/e107_images/newspost_images/zumbul.jpg
