Storyboard Text

  • Week 3B: Daedalus and Icarus
  • While in Crete, Daedalus created the Minoan Palace of Knossos for King Minos. Daedalus and the King had a great relationship until Daedalus advised Princess Ariadne to give Theseus the thread that helped him come out from the infamous Labyrinth, after killing the Minotaur. King Minos was enraged so he imprisoned Daedalus and his son Icarus in the Labyrinth. Daedalus made wings of wax so that he and Icarus could escape. Icarus flew too close to the sun so his wings melted and he drowned.
  • Mythological Allusion
  • I told you NOT to touch the stove but you never pay attention! It's like I'm Daedalus and you're Icarus. Listen next time.
  • Tatiana Kfoury C period
  • Icarus symbolizes one who has been given a warning or instruction but does not listen. Daedalus symbolizes one who gives the warning or instruction. The mother gave her child the instructions to not touch the stove to protect him, just like how Daedalus warned Icarus not to fly to close to the sun. Icarus and the kid did the exact opposite of what they were told.
