... lessons, and the texture of his plays may be a mixture of the two, with the dramatic parts illustrating and complementing the points made in the non-dramatic ones. To teach by delight, he must invent lies, but he must do more than that- he must also explain the meaning of the lies, and explain and explain. Homer and Vergil, for instance, were considered great rhetoricians by the Elizabethans, and Shakespeare seems clearly to be part of this tradition. He uses the theatre as a pulpit. Here, he lays out the last section of the play like a trained orator marshalling his rhetorical devices for the final attack upon his audience. The imitatio, ...

... sensation of fear was called [Greek text] or, sometimes, [Greek text] or [Greek text]. The expression or manifestation of fear was called [Greek text] (or, in the adjectival form, [Greek text]), which is panic flight from the feared object. This distinction is of at least Homeric vintage. The two basic kinds of fear were early personified as Phobos and Deimos, the monstrous offspring of Ares (Mars), and in the nineteenth century these very names were given to the newly-discovered (or rediscovered) satellites of the planet Mars. The fear aroused by a tragedy would of course be primarily a sensation of fear ...

... resemblances between the two bodies of narrative, in general and in particular, are quite striking; and it has indeed been observed by many that the soap operas constitute today's closest equivalent to Greek myth.(12) Velikovsky has argued in Worlds in Collision that segments of Greek myth, particularly certain events of the Trojan War as depicted by Homer, are the product of a racial knowledge of worldwide physical catastrophe.(13) He says the social, political, and atmospheric disorders in the myths represent the planetary disorders observed in the heavens and their effects on Earth. If, therefore, there is a strong similarity of event and appeal between ancient Greek myth and modern soap ...

275. Jonathan Swift and the Moons of Mars [Journals] [Kronos]
... passage in Swift aroused the literary critics' wonder. "It is an even chance that Swift invented the two satellites of Mars and thus by a rare accident came close to the truth. But it may have been that Swift had read about the trabants in some text not known to us or to his contemporaries. The fact is that Homer knew about the two steeds of Mars' that drew his chariot; Virgil also wrote about them.... "Whether or not Swift borrowed his knowledge of the existence of two trabants of Mars from some ancient astrological work, the ancient poets knew of the existence of the satellites of Mars."(12) Despite Velikovsky's ...

... symptoms in their structure and purpose. Freud insisted that certain experiences are transmitted to one's descendants. Velikovsky did not emphasize the sexual nature of those experiences but held that repeated, universal catastrophes have left their memory traces, particularly in how we interpret the evidence of those catastrophes.(30) 4) Myth as history: Freud synchronized the Homeric epics with the time in which "the return of the religion of Moses was in preparation" among the Hebrews, and proposed that the early Greeks had experienced a period of prehistoric "cultural efflorescence which had perished in a historical catastrophe and of which an obscure tradition survived".(31) Apparently, he had in mind some ...

277. Kadmos: The Primeval King [Journals] [Kronos]
... Kadmos' father is sometimes given as Ogygos, a shadowy figure who gave his name to a Greek version of the deluge - the Ogygian flood. Ogygos' prominence in Theban myth is also reflected by the fact that the ancient Thebans were called Ogygians after him.(55) A more common name for the Thebans, as witnessed by Homer, however, was Kadmeans. This situation alerts us to the possibility that Kadmos and Ogygos might have been one and the same mythological figure. This possibility is strengthened by the additional fact that, in several ancient sources, Ogygos, like Kadmos, appears as the first king of Thebes.(56) At this point the meaning ...

After the first American fly-by probe, Mariner II, passed its rendezvous point with Venus in December 1962, the results were first made public in February, 1963, and it was claimed by the NASA spokesman, Dr. Homer Newell, that the clouds on Venus are rich in hydrocarbons. I have repeatedly read in the polemic surrounding my work that this statement at the press conference was a mistake seized- -upon by the followers of my concepts. It was not a press conference "mistake." The conclusion was based upon very careful consideration of the physical ...

Is this a peculiarity of the Greek and Roman mythologies, or does it reflect mythologies as a whole? B. O'GHEOGHAN Esher PETER JAMES replies: First, in view of the evidence that Aphrodite was a Venus-deity, the Homeric tale of the "love affair" between Ares and Aphrodite, originally interpreted by Velikovsky (1 ) as an account of interplanetary contact between Mars and the Moon, must now be seen as a myth concerning Mars and Venus, presumably as seen from the Earth in its Evening Star aspect. This in fact was the interpretation of the ...

... older legends", Athena was not the daughter of Zeus. Without implying that the usual version of her birth from Zeus is necessarily the "correct" one, I must question the value of the words "older legends". As far as the renditions available to us are concerned, the oldest myths we have are those sung by Homer and Hesiod, dating from the seventh century or thereabouts, and they both call Athena the daughter of Zeus. It can be argued - as Graves often does (see The Greek Myths I, p. 13) - that later writers followed "obviously earlier" versions of myths than our earliest Greek sources, but Graves' criteria ...
