The contemporary myth of a?The Clash of the Titansa? on television compared to the ancient myth of Zeus that we have covered thus far.
a?The Clash of the Titansa? is an epic film based upon the Greek Mythology history of World Literature. In terms of the scheme, characterizations and in general the message we derive in regards to Zeus is that it reveals Zeus to be a cruel, powerful god.
Zeus is an Olympian god whom represented to be armed with lightning and often being prepared by his son, Hephaestus. Zeus was cruel by nature. In fact, to quote from our readings a?Zeus hates with a vengeance all bravado, the mighty boasts of men. He watched them coming on in a rising flood , the pride of their golden armor ringing shrill-and brandishing his lightning blasted the fightera? just as the goal , rushing to shout his triumph from our walls. (Knox/Clinton page 661,662) In both Greek mythology and the movie a?The Clash of the Titansa?, they are based upon the same portrayal.
Zeus was known as the a?Lord of the sky, the rain god.a? His weapon was a thunderbolt in which he uses to hurl at his enemies. He was known as one of the Olympian gods. Zeus defeated and imprisoned his father Cronus (a Titan) in the Tartarus realm, guarded by Tartarus doors, and then drew lots with his brothers Poseidon and Hades to see who would become the supreme ruler of the gods. Zeus won the draw and became the ruler of the gods. He is married to Hera but his many affairs are a well known fact. (web)
In comparison, The Norton Anthology of World Literature book about Zeus, states a?Down from the heights he crashed, pounding down the earth!a? Then it goes on to tell us that a moment ago, blazing with a torch in his hand and having a craze to attack, he breathed his rage, the storm of his outrageous fury hurling at their heads!. However, his high hopes have laid him low and down goes the enemy the ranks the iron god of war whom deals with his rewards with his stunning blows a Areas the rapture of battle, their right arm in crisis. (Knox/Clinton page 662)
In addition, to our readings, it states a?Seven captains marshaled at the seven gates which means seven against their equals, thus, gave their brazen trophies up to Zeus the god of the breaking battle , all except two of them which were his two brothers by blood. One mother and one father-matched in rage, spears matched for the dual conquest which ended up clashing and winning the common prize of death.a? For this was for now his victory. (Knox/Clinton page 662)
In contrast, regarding the movie, a?Clash of the Titans,a? Zeus is portrayed as a hateful god. Calibos was loved and spoiled by his mother, but he was handsome (for the time being). Zeus gave him the wells of the moon for him to take care of but instead Calibos decided to hunt and trap therefore, killing every living creature. This included Zeusa herd of sacred flying horses, all except the one remaining horse Pegasus. As punishment for his shameful mark of despicable cruelty, Zeus then transformed him into a being repulsive sight to the human eye, becoming a mortal mockery and thus being shunned and forced to live as an outcast in the swamps and marshes. He had horns and appeared to look as if he was the devil in disguise as the tale goes with the face of a demon. Zeus who was the father of Calibos, the mother named Thetis (Goddess of the sea), retaliated by punishing Andromeda and the city. She ordered Andromeda to be killed as a virgin, or the city would suffer and be destroyed by a sea monsterthe kraken.
As one can see that Zeus was not a friendly god and wanted the power to do with what he pleased. He had many affairs, he was vengeful and thought things should be his way or no way. He treated his son terribly because he did not do as Zeus had hoped he would. One can also see that there was a battle between Zeus and the mother of one of their children, Calibos, who was turned into a monster in peopleas eyes and Thetis did not approve of this for this was her son and did not want to see him in this fashion.
