How The Setting Impacts The Characters/Events

The setting impacts the story because
if Daedalus was not in the high tower he would not have been able to get all the feathers. Also, he would not have been high enough to take flight.

the myth is man vs. nature. It is man vs. nature because it is Icarus vs. the sun and water. The conflict is revealed because the sun melts Icarus's wings, and the water drowns him.
