The Myth of Sisyphus and it's relationship to Existentialism
BY Alma Orozco Period 3, AP Lit Ms. Polydoros
Sisyphus is essentially put to be punished by the gods for "stealing their secrets". As a consequence, he must roll a rock up to the top of a mountain only to have it roll down like it has a mind of its own. Sisyphus is only existing, he is doing the same punishment every day.
Sisyphus then wanted to test his wife's love for him, she failed. The consequence was that he had to go to hell in order to be able to test his wife's love, he was allowed a chance to go back to "chastise' his wife but realized how much he would miss everything on earth.This causes a connection to responsibility and anguish as he is forced back into his current punishment of rock duty.
Sisaphys was brought down to be punished because of the conflict that the author seems to always hit: The problem and contradictions between what we want from the world or the universe and what we actually have or find.
I AM A GOD!
Sisyphus is then taken back by Mercury because he never came back to hell and was essentially, as I said before, put to put a rock up a mountain forever. At least he tried.
Allin all, Sisyphus was smart enough to outsmart death and escape the Underworld-twice! He did what he could to become more than someone just existing, although his ultimate purpose seems for him to do evil deeds. He, in the end, demonstrated responsibility for his acts, anguish for his punishment, and will forever experience the idea of forlornness in the mountain. If you don't count the rock that is. His actions affected his life as well as the gods he fooled. His free choice became an ultimate burden.
