The poem's point of view seems to be as if someone is talking to someone else ( I think it is Hades ). They use simple words, for the most part, and it is pretty easy to understand. It is written in rhyme but the rhyme is quite irregular. By the use of words, you can really tell who Persephone was before being taken to the Underworld. It explains how she was wild and care-free. She was young and had lots of energy. You can also tell that she is sad and scared that she is in the Underworld instead of her home.
Persephone was the daughter of Zeus and Demeter. She was abducted by Hades, God of the Underworld. This made her mother, Demeter, angry. Her mother made all the plants wither and the Earth was barren. Zeus tried to get Persephone back from the Underworld, but unknowingly, she had eaten some pomegranate seeds which Hades had given her, binding her to him for a third of a year. It was decided that Persephone would spend 4 months with Hades in the Underworld, and 8 months with her mother on Earth. Those 4 months are during winter were her mother makes the Earth barren out of sadness. Then when Persephone comes back to her, it becomes spring.
Persephone in the Underworld
Persephone is mentioned in Disney's 1934 short film from Silly Symphony, The Goddess Of Spring. The short explains the story of Persephone's abduction but they never mention her name. I chose this as my allusion because it thoroughly speaks of the actual myth with a little bit of changes. They do this by making it into a short.
