The tale of Pyramus and Thisbe
Another classic tale from Mythology! Mae The Storyteller embarks you on an adventure of true love and tragedy.
Hello again. Mae the Storyteller back again with another tale from Greek Mythology. So sit back and relax as the Tale of Pyramus and Thisbe comes to life today.
Once upon a time, in the city of Babylon, there were two attractive people who fell in love. They were Pyramus and Thisbe.
There parents however bickered a lot and the only way they can communicate was a crack in the wall between their houses. One night, they had planed to meet at the tomb of a great king anf be united once and for all
When Thisbe got to the area she was chased by a lioness, Pyramus thinks she is dead and kills himself, when she returns, she finds him dead. He looked in her eyes one last time and death takes him
The Thisbe kills herself as well and begs for the mulberry fruit to be dark red in ripping season and for their ashes to be together. Those wishes were both granted in memory of the two lovers
And that concludes this tale, this story is similar to the tale of Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare in a sense. This story is tragic but has a meaning on how the mulberry fruit is red. Mythology has meaning in their stories even if the event is tragic or joyful. So long and remember to keep reading and making your own stoies!
