2: The History of Medusa | 1 | That Stone-Turning Look | Medusa was one of three daughters born to ancient marine deities Phorcys and his sister Ceto, children of Gaia. In early myths, Medusa is ugly and ‘monstrous’. In later myths, Medusa is described as ‘fair-cheeked’ and the only daughter to be born mortal and in not the monstrous gorgon frame. Roman poet Ovid related that Medusa was a seductive maiden who had many suitors who fought over her. In this myth, Medusa is a priestess in Athena’s temple when Poseidon raped her in Athena’s temple. Athena became angry and chose not to punish Poseidon because he was a God and transformed Medusa’s hair to snakes and made her face so terrible that a look would turn one to stone. In this myth, Ovid says the punishment is just. Was later killed by Hero Perseus, who used her head to finish a quest then gave it to Athena to put on her shield.

4: 3 | That Stone-Turning Look | Lessons Learned | 1. Don't go making goddess' mad by getting raped in their temples. This is--obviously--bad and completely the victim's fault. 2. Beauty can be the greatest asset or the greatest downfall. Medusa showed us, the reader, both. 3. There generally aren't morals to myths. This is one of those myths | Medusa Beheaded

5: 4 | Gabby King | Psychoanalysis and Symbolism | +Medusa is thought to be a symbol for female rage +Often referred to as a 'monster' or 'ugly' +Logo for Versace +Used to connote malevolence +Thought to represent notions of scientific determinism and nihilism, especially in contrast to romantic idealism +Avoiding Medusa's eyes seems to represent avoiding the ostansibly depressing reality that the universe is meaningly
