My historical figure is Artemis, goddess of the hunt. You may not have heard of her, but she is from Greek mythology. Even if she wasn't mentioned in a lot in the stories she was still the favorite child of Zeus. Who is Zeus? Well he was the father of Artemis, but before I explain, I’ll have to tell you more about Artemis.

Zeus was the father of Artemis and Leto was her mom. Hera, Zeus's other wife; got jealous when she found out Leto was pregnant with twins. So she commanded all the lands of the earth to never let the babies be born. Hera also sent monsters to kill Leto. Finally Leto came to the island of Delos. Since the island was floating and wasn't connected to the ground, it really wasn't considered “land”. On the island was a single palm tree where Leto sat down to rest. Then Artemis and her twin brother, Apollo, were born.

When Artemis was little, she went to her father Zeus and asked him six wishes: to never force her to marry so she would stay as an eternal maiden, to be more famous than her brother, to rule over the mountains, to have 60 nymph attend her on her hunting, to have two hunting dogs and a silver chariot to ride on, and to have a hunting bow like her brothers. Her brother’s bow and arrows were hard and piercing as the sun, but Artemis’ arrows gave painless death and were soft as a moonbeam.

Artemis became the goddess of hunt, moon, and childbirth. One myth about Artemis involves a mortal man named Actaeon. Actaeon was a prince and was out hunting when he saw Artemis bathing. When Artemis saw him she was in rage. She then turned him into a stag and made his own hunting dogs eat him.

Sometimes Artemis was a cold hearted goddess, but she was usually peaceful. Her most peaceful time was when she met Orion. Even if she didn't like men, Orion was one of her hunting companion. He was a great hunter…...

Euripedes Hippolytus

...Euripides’ Hippolytus Artemis’ informative speech to Hippolytus not only displays the dramatic irony present throughout the play, but also solidifies many predominant themes present during the play. This passage summarizes the entire play as Artemis describes the plans of the characters, going on to blame Phaedra, the Nurse, Aphrodite, and Theseus. (Halleran, 276) Through Artemis’ passage (Euripides, 1283-1312), the truth about Phaedra and Hippolytus, unknown and misunderstood by Theseus, finally surfaces. As Artemis reveals the plot to Theseus in the passage, the themes of honour and relationship between man and god are evident. Hippolytus’ relationship with the goddesses Artemis and Aphrodite, along with his honour and pride, are well established directly from the prologue, and further solidified in this passage by Artemis. Hippolytus is extremely devoted to the goddess Artemis, honouring her by choosing to remain sexually chaste. His ability to remain sexually chaste, along with his strong will to pursue hunting activities explains the relationship he has with the goddess. Artemis displays honour for Hippolytus in this passage, informing Theseus the reason for her presence is, “[…] to reveal [his] son’s mind/ as just, so that [Hippolytus] may die with a good reputation.” (Euripides, 1298-1299) Artemis begins by mentioning her primary reason for being present is a result of her desire for Hippolytus to die with a good reputation. Artemis further reveals Hippolytus’...

Personal Essay for Mythology

...that I have always admired is Artemis, she is brave, kind and self-made, all qualities that I hope to possess. Unlike the other God and Goddesses Artemis preferred solitude in the forest to life on Mount Olympus with the other Gods and Goddesses. The myth that has always so spoke to me is the myth about Artemis and Orion, today known as the consolation in the sky. In the story Artemis has sworn to remain and virgin and never marry, although she never vowed not to fall in love from time to time. Orion was a talented hunter, very handsome and famous young man who one day, during a hunt saw Artemis and the two fell madly in love. During the following weeks the two dined, hunted together but never slept together, as Artemis still held her oath regarding her virginity her scared duty. Apollo, her twin brother, grew fearful that their relationship would soon make her break her oath. Apollo was the god of the sun and would ride through the sky during the day to bring light to the world. From his chariot he was able to see everything happening below on Earth. One day as he was riding through the sky, he looked down and saw Orion swimming in the ocean below and his sister lying on the beach. Troubled by their actions he formed a plan so he drove his chariot to the beach to speak with Artemis. After greeting her, Apollo suggested a contest to test if she was truly skilled with her bow.

Artemis Sportswear Proposal

...Artemis Sportswear Proposal Alyssa Casler, Derrik Carr, John Humphrey, Raven Porter, Tieran Dysart Comm/215 Oct 13, 2014 Rebecca Kinney Artemis Sportswear Proposal When running a business, there are many factors that go into a successful business. Keeping your customers, shareholders, and employees happy will determine if your business fails or succeeds. The biggest part in keeping a business thriving is if it is making money. We could raise prices and leave everything the way it is, but that could lead to a decline in customers. Raising the prices with no inside changes to how the business runs could also scare away investors or lead to less interest in our company. This could also lead to our employees not having very much confidence that we will be around as a stable job opportunity. During the recession, many companies were losing profits and created unnecessary risks in search of growing their profit margins (Mariotti, 2011). This is the basis of the proposal to increase Artemis Sportswear profits without taking unnecessary risks. The four points labor costs, operational costs, marketing, and non-essential costs will guide us in increasing profit margins without taking unnecessary risks.

Background “In the 1970s, athletic sportswear began to evolve from a product line aimed at small and unique markets into a mainstream fashion product” (Clean Clothes Campaign, 2004).
