Storyboard Text

  • Exposition
  •          Rising Action        
  • Climax
  • Daedalus was imprisoned in a tower by  King Minos. "....King Minos flew into a rage with its builder Daedalus, and ordered him shut up in a high tower that faced the lonely sea." Line 1-3.
  • Falling Action
  • Daedalus begins to build wings made of wax and feathers while Icarus collects feathers on the beach.  "The small feathers he pressed in to the soft wax and the large ones he tied on with thread." Line 17-18. 
  • Resolution
  • Icarus got distracted by the fun of flying and got to close to the sun. The heat melted the wax and he fell into the water.  "He was bewitched by the sense of freedom.... The blazing heat beat down on the wings and softened the wax." Line 68-69 and 70-71. 
  • Theme
  • Icarus died and Daedalus buried him. He named the area Icaria after him. "Weeping bitterly, he buried his small son and called the land Icaria in his memory." Line  86-87. 
  • He made it out alive and put the wings in a temple Daedalus built for Apollo. " He arrived safely in Sicily, where he built a temple to Apollo and hung up his wings as an offering to the god...." Line 90-92.
  • The theme is freedom and people will sacrifice everything for it.
