The Myth Of Innocence Gluck

Storyboard Text

  • The Myth of Innocence
  • Scene one (Little girl staring at her reflection)
  • Scene two (sad/angry reflection in water)
  • Poem by: Louise Glück Video by: Shelby Galligher
  • Scene Three (Picture of sun)
  • One summer she goes into the field as usual stopping for a bit at the pool where she often looks at herself, to see if she detects any changes
  • Scene Four (death standing over her how other people view Hades)
  • She sees the same person, the horrible mantle of daughterliness still clinging to her
  • Scene Five (Persephone sees him as an actual person, they hug)
  • The sun seems, in the water, very close. That's my uncle spying again, she thinks
  • Everything in nature is in some way her relative. "I am never alone", she thinks, turning the thought into a prayer. Then death appears, like the answer to a prayer
  • I am never alone
  • No one understands anymore how beautiful he was. But Persephone remembers. Also that he embraced her, right there, with her uncle watching. She remembers sunlight flashing on his bare arms.
