Hello Everyone, I am writing a Greek mythology essay for English class and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of Greek myths that I could discuss that teaches a moral lesson. I'd much appreciate any ideas that you may come up with. Thanks so much! :)
OMG I love Greek myths and would love to suggest u some
here's my top 3
PENELOPE AND HADES
Also Hercules but that's too stereotypical
Also, 99% of all greek stories have a moral, and if you are into this, there are many Greek mythology podcasts on Spotify. Some are PG13 bc back then tales were a bit vulgar
Greek Mythology is my specialty. I know anything and everything. DivideByZero is right though. Do Icarus. Thats the first one that comes to my mind right away.
Now, if I were to Penelope and Hades or Pandora's box, do you know of any themes of these myths?
Pandora's box: The moral is basically curiosity killed the cat... and almost humanity, and also that in dark times there is hope
Icarus: Quite literally don't brag, and similar themes
EDIT: Penelope is if you love something, let it go
I'm sorry, but these are just vague themes, and I suggest reading all of these stories
