Keith A. Miles Dr. Kennick Humanities 351 10 April 2018 Orpheus The son of Calliope and Apollo, Orpheus is brilliant musician, prophet and poet in Greek myth he also entertains with his lyre while singing songs. His credit to myth is his ability to fascinate or captivate his audience with his beautiful voice and style of music. His astonishing contribution or feats in singing causes animals, birds, fish in the rivers to be calm and relaxed, wild beast, trees and rocks also enjoy his music and sometimes dance to his music. He has that charisma and style of magic about him that makes him a charmer, he is able to change the course of rivers. Orpheus has merit and power over Hades with his beautiful voice and music. Orpheus married Eurydice the marriage didn’t last long the tragedy was she was bitten by a snake on her heel which in turned ended her life and she was now in the underworld. Orpheus missed his love so much (Eurydice) that he went to the underworld and played his music which softened the heart of Hades, Orpheus was granted or given an opportunity to bring his love (Eurydice) back to the outside world to be with him under one condition that was he couldn’t or wouldn’t turn around and look for his wife until they both were outside in the living world.

Orpheus fully understood the order of merit which had to be followed for his wife to return to the outside world. He kept hearing steps but he didn’t know how far Eurydice was behind him out of love and curiosity he forgot and turned around to early before they both reached the outside world which was the agreement and decided to look behind him sadly, Eurydice disappeared for good, and now she was back in the underworld for the second time never to return.

    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.
