I was reading some old reports I did in school, and ran across my high school paper on Persephone
. For some reason I really dug this myth. Maybe this is a bit freudian, but I think I might know why.
is a totally submissive woman
. She has no choices
. She is dominated, abducted, etc. She doesn't mind though. She is the quintessential damsel in distress
Persephone is what was considered, and by some still is considered to be the perfect "girl". Not woman, but girl.. still a naive, innocent child, but sexually appealing.. appealing enough for Hades
to abduct her as his wife.
