    Ares God My report is on Ares. He is the god of war and violence and in Norse mythology he was the god of war, violence, and justice. He was the son of Zeus and Hera. His weapon of choice was a spear because it was magical. The magical part of it was he could summon it by call it and the other part of it was if it targeted some one it followed it until it killed it. Among the deities associated with Ares were his consort, Aphrodite, goddess of love, and such minor deities as Deimos (Fear) and Phobos (Rout), who accompanied him in battle.

  • Comparison Essay - 274 words
    Comparison Essay There are many different ways to explain the beginning and creation. Genesis and Edith Hamiltons "Mythology," are two of many literary works you can find.

  • Creating The Past - 1,227 words
    ... . The Egyptians religion permeated their whole life - socially, politically, and economically (Casson 71). The Egyptian culture, way of life, and surroundings were ultimately responsible for inspiring the root and branches of myths and deities.

Then the fiery Muspell and the icy Niflheim came into being, and in between these two realms the cool air from Niflheim met the warm air from Muspell to thaw ice that began creating a sleeping giant named Ymir. As the giant slept he began to sweat, and from his sweat formed three frost giants. The melting ice then created Audhumla; a cow that fed Ymir with the ...

    Greek Myths Section I:"Odysseus the most cunning man in the world." Odysseus, son of Procris and Cephalus of the Royal House of Athens, played a major role in the Trojan War. However, the legends of Odysseus do not begin until after the great war. At the end of the war he was separated from the rest of the Greek armies and was forced to wander for ten years until he was reunited with his family. His journeys in those ten years were very similar to Jason's journey in his search for the Golden Fleece. Also, in the course of Odysseus' adventures, he proved himself to be not only a great hero but also a cunning and resourceful man, worthy of the title the most cunning man in the world. There are ...

  • People Believe In Myths - 525 words
    People Believe In Myths Mythology Every race of humans and most cultures believed in a myth or type of myth at one time. Sometimes a myth can be something small like a teacher who's said to be an alien. Yet some are quite big and still believed in today like the loch ness monster. Myths have been around since the beginning of time and will be there to the end. All of us no one, and we've all told one. Probably the biggest myth of all that was believed in by two different cultures was that of Greek and Roman mythology. The list of gods go on and on, to name few I'd have to say Zeus, Artemis, Atlas, Athena, Cronus, Hera, Rhea, Hermes, Hades, and the god of the sea, Poseidon. In Roman myth they ...

  • Star Wars - 3,440 words
    Star Wars Star Wars As a Mythology Fifteen years ago, I set out to make a movie for a generation without fairy tales. -George Lucas There exists in every culture a series of folk tales and stories, which make up a part of that culture's history. These stories, called myths, often venture into the magical and fantastic, with great heroes battling terrible monsters to save exotic lands. As the human race has evolved, we have moved beyond the need to attribute unexplained events to supernatural workings beyond our ken. As a result, modern culture puts its faith in science and organised religion, and for centuries there have been no new myths. In the nineteen-seventies, a young and enthusiastic ...

  • Symbolism Of The Ring In Jrr Tolkiens The Lord Of The Rings - 2,272 words

By mastering his own world and his own language and becoming one with his fantasy, Tolkien is able to create wonderful symbolism and meaning out of what would otherwise be considered nonsense. Thus, when one decides to study The Ruling Ring, or The One Ring, in T ...

  • Symbolism Of The Ring In Jrr Tolkiens The Lord Of The Rings - 2,225 words
    ... Frodo has when he wears the Ring is the essence of temptation put forth by the evil forces at work. Frodo is obviously tempted to use the Ring for his own prosperity, for the power of perception is very great with the Ring. At this time, he is unable to see the danger of the Ring that is ever-growing. This section of the trilogy is one of the most important of all, and it is a turning point in both the readers understanding of the Ring as well as Frodos. There is an interesting parallel here, concerning an issue which will be expanded on at a later point, a parallel between Frodos individual struggle with temptation on the summit and Christs temptation on the summit. Not necessarily to s ...
