Theseus escaped from the labyrinth, the ruler, Minos, wanted him to be shut in a tower. "When Theseus escaped from the labyrinth, King Minos flew into rage with its builder, Daedalus, and ordered him shut up in a high tower..."
Daedalus was an artist and was not discourage and he was thinking "Minos may control the land and sea but he doesn't he does not control the sky" So he and his son were going to build wings.
Before they knew it they were up in the air spreading their wings. He told his son "Keep near me and you'll be safe." Guess what Icarus didn't listen he went to close to the sun and fell into the ocean.
He pulled his son out of the water and went back to land where he buried his son. " " Weeping bitterly He buried his small son..."
He named the island after his son, Icarus "Called the land Icaraia in his memory"
A theme is even if this are hard don't give up keep on trying and never give up "He buried his small son and called the land Icaraia in his memory. Then,flutter of wings, he once more took to the air"
