Transcript of Aeolus

Aeolus The god of the wind Created by Perry Jarvis Aeolus is the son of Hippotes. He ruled over the Island of Aeolia. In the Odyssey, Aeolus entertains Odysseus, gives him favorable winds on his journey, and gives him a bag that holds unfavorable winds. Then, Odysseus' curious companions opened the bag, thinking there would be riches inside. Instead, the winds escaped, which drove them back to the island of Aeolia, where Aeolus dismissed them. This mythological story reminds me of a SpongeBob SquarePants movie, in which he (Spongebob) has a bag of winds that rides him back to his home in Bikini Bottom. Quick Facts The literal translation of Aeolus means nimble; quick moving There is still heavy debate going on today about where Aeolus came from ( Who his parents were ). Aeolus had 4 sons, which are believed to have become the 4 gods, or types of wind. Some people believe that Aeolus is the son of Poseidon and Arne, granddaughter of Hippotes. Allusions There is an online music store company named Aeolus William Shakespeare made a reference to Aeolus in his play "Henry IV" Vergil's Aeneid has many references to Aeolus Other Allusions Aeolus is also the name of a computer software The fan of a CPU, or Central Processing Unit, is called a Aeolus.
