Sophia Heiser ENGL 102: Monsters in Film & Literature 9 November 2015 Monsters Final Project The monster I’d like to research is Echidna, a lesser known monster from Greek  mythology. She is half-woman, half-snake, the mate of Typhon (who is said to be the most  fearsome of monsters in Greek mythology), and is said to be the mother of many famous  monsters of Greek mythology, such as the Hydra, Cerberus, the Chimera, and the Sphinx. I’ve  always been interested in Greek mythology so I knew I wanted to research a monster in that  realm, and Echidna stood out to me because of our discussions of monstrosity linked with  motherhood.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
