ANALYSIS - in lines 3-12 the text describes it to by a normal sunny spring day. In lines 16-21 the attitude of the text makes Icarus's death seem inconvenient and unimportant.
ALLUSIONS- Pit is almost a direct representation of Icarus . He is a hero in the Nintendo Video Game kid Icarus. His most recent appearance in a video game was Nintendo's Super Smash Brothers for the Wii U.
In the Song "Carry On Wayward Son" by Kansas it says ''just to get a glimpse beyond the illusion, I was soaring ever higher but, i flew too to high" referring to how Icarus got carried away and flew to high. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzRsAHoBkXQ
In the Iron Man movie, iron man flies to high and his suit freezes. much like Icarus he got carried away and flew to high
The story of Icarus helped me understand what was happening in the poem. The background information given to me by the story of Icarus explained why he was flying and why he fell into sea. The poem was much less dramatic compared to the myth and toned it down. In the song allusion knowing that it is an allusion to Icarus gives it a deeper meaning. ''just to get a glimpse beyond the illusion, I was soaring ever higher but, i flew too to high" .The tone in the the text in the song would be curious. In both the myth and the allusion they get carried away, teaching us to stay on track and be aware.
