Hello there! So this portion of mythology is part of a larger unit that I utilized with a high school English classroom. The purpose of this particular mini-unit was to look at the original myth, but also to expand upon the original and apply it to modern thought and culture. Some of the directions for studying this myth in a modern light is to look at it from a feminist angle, and to also look at it as a bildungsroman for the development of Persephone. We also focused on bringing in some modern poetry which was inspired by this myth and analyzing that and comparing it to some of the themes and concepts that we first drew on from the myth.
