    The minotaur representing the human and animal side in each of us means that each of us has a good side and bad side. Perhaps you seen it in the new. A thought to be normal kid just a little quiet grows up to become a killer and a cannibal. The killer, cannibal side of him was the animal in him that showed itself. Not everyone shows their animal side. Most of us are pretty good at taming the beast inside. Perhaps that is what the minotaur had trouble with. When he was a baby it has been said that he was breast fed until his mother could not provide the nourishment to satisfy him. Then his animal side came out and he could no longer control himself. It was said that the minotaur became ferocious and monstrous. If he could not get the nourishment…

    There he was, amidst those whose fate was so tragic my heart ached. He was entering the castle I knew and loved. My father allowed those who were going into the maze one final feast. The house was decorated with flowers and ribbons hanging from the ceilings accompanied by delicacies the chefs prepared only this time of year. I hated this time of year, the time when innocent civilians were sacrificed for my father 's Minotaur. It always seemed like the angel of death was lurking through the…

    Theseus and the Minotaur is alluded to near the start of Plato’s Phaedo by the character Phaedo (58 B-C) to initiate a parallel between the µῦθος itself and the teachings of the character Socrates in the pages that follow. As the discussion between Socrates and his companions continues up until his death, this parallel becomes ever more clear, and by the end of the Phaedo it is reasonable to interpret the µῦθος as an analogy for the transition from life to death, where Socrates is counterpart to…

    Aegeus, king of Athens. The young man who killed the Minotaur, shows many attributes of a hero. Through many acts of bravery, opportunities to display one's bravery, as well as love for mankind, Theseus is an excellent example of a hero. First off, when the 14 young noble citizens were being compelled to go in the labyrinth with the minotaur, King Minos was deciding who would go “and his son Theseus had chosen to be among them”(Donaldson 18). This means that Theseus had volunteered to, what the…

    Greek Mythology can be seen as the merging of human beliefs, imagination, artistic convention and perceptions of divinity. The most interesting and perhaps one of the very few enigmas from the past that continues to blur the lines between reality and mythology is the Minoan Labyrinth at Knossos. A structure so ingenious and elaborate that it went down in history and mythology. The Labyrinth is symbolic a tale of eternal love, deceitful men and vengeful gods – the legend of the Minotaur and goes…

    Theseus, this could possibly be referring to Hercules’ bow. The movie also depicts that the Titans are held in Mt. Tartarus when in the myth Tartarus is in the underworld. One of the most terrible modifications of this movie was the Minotaur. The Minotaur in the movie is just a large man who wears a bull helmet with barbed wire, whereas in the myth it is half man half bull. The things done throughout the labyrinth scenes are also a little off. Theseus cuts his leg and uses his blood to find his…
