  • The Myth of Orpheus and Eurydice By: Rachel Wilson
  • Orpheus had just lost the love of his life, Eurydice, to the bite of a venomous snake. Even his legendary lyre music couldn't bring him joy without her.
  • I can't let you go! I have to do something!
  • So, in order to get his love back, Orpheus decided to descend into the underworld in hopes of convincing Pluto to return Eurydice to the world of the living.
  • With my music, I can convince Pluto to return Eurydice to me!
  • Orpheus begged and played his lyre beautifully for Pluto, but he would not budge.
  • Please let me bring Eurydice back. I can't live without her.
  • Suddenly, Pluto agreed to return Eurydice. However, he had one condition.
  • Fine, but you cannot look back at her while you lead her to the light. If you do, she will come back down and you will never see her again.
  • Yes! I can do that! Thank you, Pluto!
  • Orpheus thought he would be able to adhere to Pluto's condition, but he had no idea if Eurydice was truly walking with him, or if this was a cruel trick. So, he gave in to his fear.
  • As Pluto promised, when Orpheus turned around, Eurydice was dragged back to the underworld and would never return to the surface.
  • I can't hear breathing or footsteps. Is she really behind me? I can't be sure unless I look back.
