King Minos gets angry at a for escaping the labyrinth (maze). He does Daedalus leave because he built the maze. pg 31 lines "When Theseus escapes from the labyrinth, King Minos flew into rage with its builder, Daedalus, and ordered him shut up in a high tower that faced a lonely sea. In time, with help of his young son, Icarus, Daedalus managed to escape from the tower, only to find himself a prisoner on the island. Several times he tried by bribery to stow away on one of the vessels sailing from Crete, but King Minos kept strict watch over them, no ships were allowed to sail without being carefully searched."
Daedalus created two pairs of wings with feathers and wax hopping that Icarus and him will escape the island.Pg 32 line 15-23 "As thousands of gulls soared over the island, Icarus soon collected a huge pile of feathers. Daedalus then melted some wax and made a skeleton in the of a bird's wing. The smallest feathers he pressed into the soft wax and the large ones he tied on with thread. Icarus played about on the beach happily while his father worked, chasing the feathers that blew away in the strong wind that swept the island and sometimes taking bits of the wax and working it into strange shapes with his fingers."
Daedalus wants Icarus to be safe so he tells Icarus to not go to high and to not go to low. pg 32 lines 42- 47 "No human has ever traveled through the air before, and I want you to listen vary carefully to my instructions. Keep at a moderate height, for if you fly to low, the fog and spray will clog your wings, and if you fly to high, the heat will melt the wax that holds them together. Keep near me and you will be safe."
Icarus felt excitement and went high then Daedalus said to go. His wings left melted and him falling. pg 33 lines 61-65 "Icarus, beating his wings in joy, felt the thrill of the cool wind on his face and the clear air above and below him. He flew higher and higher up into the blue sky until he reached the clouds. His father saw him and called out in alarm."
Daedalus left joyless, found a place called Sicily builds a temple to Apollo. pg 34 lines 88-95 "Then, with a flutter of wings, he once more took to the air, but the joy of his flight was gone and his victory over the air was bitter to him. He arrived safely in Sicily, where he built a temple to Apollo and hung up his wings as an offering to the god, and in the wings he pressed a few bright feathers he had found floating on the water where Icarus fell."
