The Story About Persephone

By Safina :: :: 8 comments

In Greek Mythology, the Empress, Persephone was a beautiful young woman, of child bearing age who was loved and adored by her mother, family and friends. Persephone was the daughter of Zeus, the king of the gods. Persephone’s mother was Demeter, the goddess of agriculture.

One day, Persephone went to collect flowers, suddenly without warning, the earth opened, Hades, the god of the underworld snatched her. Hades was so captivated by her beauty that he wanted her for himself and carried her off to the underworld to be his wife.

Persephone’s, mother Demeter was so broken-hearted that she wandered day and night, looking for her daughter until she found out what had happened to her. Demeter was so hurt that she withdrew herself into a deep depression, and neglected her duties as the goddess of agriculture.

The earth ceased to be fertile, there was no harvest causing famine all over the earth. Zeus was not going to let this continue so he sent Hermes down to the underworld to see Hades. Hermes, the son of Zeus, known as the messenger of the gods, told Hades that he had to release Persephone. Hades did not want to send her back; he had a plan, which was to give Persephone a pomegranate to eat because he knew the pomegranate would bind her to him and the underworld forever.

Zeus demanded that his daughter had to leave the underworld to be with her mother for half the year, from the months of March until August. During the months of March through August, Demeter looked after the agriculture, and made sure the crops were sown, cultivated, and harvested.

When the constellation, Virgo leaves the sky in the month of September, Persephone returns back into the underworld, and Demeter abandons her agriculture duties and the earth lays waiting until the virgin reappears in the spring.

    I’ll just make this quick and short. I happen to agree with you’re story of Persephone. I like the way you wrote out all the information in a simple and easy way, while still getting to the main point about what really happened to her. Just thought you would like to know. :grin:
