Bellerophon and Pegasus
Transcript of Bellerophon and Pegasus
the first threshold, as Bellerophon, by going to Lycia, crosses the first threshold into his later adventures with Pegasus. Upon venturing back to Corinth, Bellerophon saw Pegasus drinking from a fountain constructed especially for him. Bellerophon attempted to catch and tame the winged horse, but Pegasus was too powerful and too fast, and the winged horse flew away. Bellerophon Encounters Pegasus Bellerophon was well-liked by the gods, especially Athena. Desiring to aid the young hero, Athena gave Bellerophon a magic bridle which he could use to tame Pegasus. Athena Aids Bellerophon Here, Bellerophon is "meeting the goddess". While he does not romantically love Pegasus, Bellerophon does view Pegasus as a creature of beauty and he desires to attain Pegasus. This is a great example of "supernatural aid". Athena, as a goddess, more than qualifies as supernatural, and she definitely provides help to Bellerophon. Using the magic bridle given to him by Athena, Bellerophon manages to capture and tame Pegasus, taking the magical flying horse for a glorious flight. Pegasus will aid Bellerophon in the hero's later adventures. Bellerophon Tames Pegasus This part of Bellerophon's story is definitely the "magical flight". Here, Bellerophon finally tames his beloved Pegasus, and takes him for an extended flight through the sky. Many of us have lofty goals in our life. We may not be able to attain them on our own, but if we please the gods, they may help us. Moral Lesson Hamilton, Edith. Mythology. New York: Back Bay Books, 1942. Print.
