Great post! It’s interesting to consider how some of the very adult themed greek mythology can be transformed into childrens’ fairy tales over time. Once or twice in TLJ, Williams makes Rey’s theme almost sound like it’s coming from a music box. When played like that, it reminded me a lot of The Nutcracker. Thank you so much! Born November Girl Facts Funny Birthday Friendly Cute T-Shirt You’re correct about the “junior novelization” of Greek mythology over time. Perhaps the best example of this, in the modern era, is the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. It “junior-ifes”, and repackages, the ‘adult’ stories for a younger audience. Greek mythology intermingling / evolving over time in telling and details as it spread across Europe, but still retaining the same themes and key messages / symbols (i.e. love and romance), is also fascinating to see.

It’s quite similar to how Christianity would “adopt” the customs / mythology aspects of different pagan communities who converted, or whom missionaries were aiming to convert. Yes, and then they do another twist for us too by incorporating pieces of those fairy tales from our youth into their adult stories to give us subconscious (or conscious) clues as to the the direction a story will take. Alice in Wonderland at the start of The Matrix when Trinity Born November Girl Facts Funny Birthday Friendly Cute T-Shirt tells Neo through his computer to follow the white rabbit without any context, and then a girl with a white rabbit tattoo shows up at his door. Rey’s flower and bell at the start of TFA, and arguably the closeup of the sloshing cup of tea (Alice in W again) in the casino in TLJ.

Yes, that’s been very difficult for me, too. I feel it’s important to give people the benefit of the doubt—especially when I don’t have all the relevant information—but it’s very hard to be charitable to a parent that dismisses the repeated claims of rape made by their 8-year-old daughter. And then go on to marry the man… I mean after the first time Wonyetye raped her, she had to be brought to the hospital… there are moments were I find myself almost beyond all charity. Not only for the mother but for all the officials, Born November Girl Facts Funny Birthday Friendly Cute T-Shirt doctors, etc., that failed this girl. This is one of those moments. I can only hope that the young girl, who is now a grown woman, got the help and understanding she so obviously needed. And I also hope that her mother made amends and learned from the incident.
