Sea Sirens 10. Melusine VideoAbove \u0026 Beyond pres. OceanLab - Sirens Of The Sea Siren, in Greek mythology, a creature half bird and half woman who lured sailors to destruction by the sweetness of her song. According to Homer, there were two Sirens on an island in the western sea between Aeaea and the rocks of Scylla. Ondine, sometimes spelled Undine, is a sea nymph from an old German tale whose lover was unfaithful. She killed him by robbing him of his breath. Ondine, like other sea nymphs, was immortal and lost her immortality after bearing children. Sirens (sometimes spelled as ‘seirenes’) are a type of creature found in ancient Greek mythology. Sirens are commonly described as beautiful but dangerous creatures. In Greek mythology, sirens are known for seducing sailors with their sweet voices, and, by doing so, lure them to their deaths. List of Sirens Aglaopheme (Αγλαοφήμη), Aglaophonos (Αγλαόφωνος), or Aglaope (Αγλαόπη), all to be translated as "with lambent Leucosia (Λευκωσία): Her name was given to the island opposite to the Sirens' cape.

The only one to swim off to them was Butes, whom Aphrodite snatched up and settled at Lilybaeum. The Seirenes, hoping to add the Argonauts to these, made haste to greet them with a liquid melody; and the young men would soon have cast their hawsers on the beach if Thrakian Orpheos Orpheus had not intervened.
Raising his Bistonian lyre, he drew from it the lively tune of a fast-moving song, so as to din their ears with a medley of competing sounds.
The girlish voices were defeated by the lure; and the set wind, aided by the sounding backwash from the shore, carried the ship off.
The poor man swam through the dark swell making for the shore, and had he landed, they would soon have robbed him of all hope of reaching home.
But Aphrodite, Queen of Eryx, had pity on him. She snatched him up while he was still battling with the surf; and having saved his life, she took him to her heart and found a home for him on the heights of Lilybaion.

Frank Baum was not a good storyteller: he didn't want kids to be worried, so as soon as any sort of conflict would arise in the plot, he had it instantly resolved.
If the purpose of fairy tales is to teach us that dragons can be killed, Baum's stories are a particular failure, because the heroines don't get to fight, or even think up a possible solution.
They lack all agency. Anything you like about the Wizard comes from the movie, not the book. But this now, this is a thing of beauty.
A modern California surfer girl and her fierce talking cat? That's the dream. The art is gorgeous, a little art nouveau, a little Arthur Rackham, a strong stylistic distinction between the world above and the one below.
And the story. Amy Chu has taken Baum's work, updated it, made it interesting and relevant, given it cultural depth by connecting it to Vietnamese folklore.
Modern surfer girl. Talking cat. Together they have made something truly Wonderful. Library copy.
Jun 10, Ed Erwin rated it liked it Shelves: comics , little-free-library. A girl discovers a fairy realm at the bottom of the sea and has adventures, accompanied by her cat and her grandfather.
Partially inspired by the relatively unknown book The Sea Fairies by L. Frank Baum , but also by Vietnamese tales, as well as the author's own imagination.
So Cap'n Bill is now a cat rather than human character, and Trot's grandfather is dealing with senile dementia or maybe Alzheimer's.
A little too simple for me, but probably will be appreciated by young readers. Randomly saw this on Amazon and then bought it at a bookstore when I looked inside.
The artwork is really well done, very Little Nemo-esque. I liked the story to this a lot. I love the fact it's talks about singe parents and grandparents with dementia.
My grandmother had dementia and it's not easy so this book somewhat gets you ready what you might expect, but in a less dramatic way.
Mainly got this book because it's based on a Baum book that I've read before. Baum's story not as well known as Randomly saw this on Amazon and then bought it at a bookstore when I looked inside.
Baum's story not as well known as his Oz books, but they connect with Oz. This book is a modern adaption and removes the Oz connections which I think is better.
It does have several homages to the Oz books though. One thing I noticed right away is Trot's ballroom dress looks exactly like Ozma, all intentional too.
Overall, this was a fun little comic and glad to see this isn't the last one. Rating: 4. The plot and beautiful illustrations keep you turning the page!
Powerful themes of family and friendship, alongside adventure, are present all throughout Chu and Lee's spectacular graphic novel!
This one is a must-read! The story starts with her spending the day at the beach surfing and her grandfather enjoying fishing!
But, her grandfather goes missing due to his dementia and she's heartbroken! Luckily he's found, but her workaholic mother tells her she can't go out to the beach without her, to ensure her grandfather's safety!
Luckily, Cap'n Bill chases the serpents away! I don't want to spoil things, but there's a few plot twists that send Trot, Cap'n Bill, and Clia on a rescue mission!
The politics and world-building of the underwater kingdom were so beautifully explored and had so much depth--yet still left a bit of mystery that I can't wait to learn more about in future books!
Now onto the representation! This graphic novel mainly features Vietnamese representation! Trot herself is Vietnamese-American and her grandfather is Vietnamese!
It was great to see the rep. The representation and culture is woven throughout the pages of this beautiful story! The art itself is so unique!
There's an element of watercolor and vibrant linework present throughout the whole graphic novel! I really paid attention to the artwork throughout each panel and was in awe at the stunning art that not only immersed me, but left me captivated!
The design of the characters, settings, and color palette brought everything to life! Sea Sirens ends on a wonderful note hinting at more to come and I can't wait!!
Lee is a beautiful and immersive graphic novel that's filled with adventure when Trot gets sucked into an underwater kingdom!
From the story to artwork, themes, and so much more--this is a wonderful graphic novel that you don't want to miss! Its wonderful!

Thank you to Viking and Penguin Random House publishing for sending me this sweet book!!! I totally didn't expect to receive such a cool graphic novel and when it arrived I couldn't help but read it immediately!
It was such a fun adventure full of the love of family, pets, and discovery. I am totally on board for the next installment whenever it is due to be published!
The artwork was so colorful and eye catching throughout and the story was one that warms your heart. I absolutely loved this!
I'll have a more in depth and coherent review for this eventually, but for now, Thank You! And it was a great book for the start of summer!

This beautiful graphic novel has the richness of color and the mashup of Vietnamese culture along with the sirens of the sea mythology and adds in a one-eyed surfing cat and a grandfather that has dementia.
The ancient Greeks might have depicted her as a sea monster or whale. She represented the dangers of the sea. She had many monstrous children with her brother Phorcys.
Ceto was the mother of the Gorgons , the most well-known of which is Medusa, who became mortal. She might have also been the mother of Ladon, a dragon that was slain by Heracles, although some sources claim she was not the mother of Ladon.
At the bank of the Rhine River, near Sankt Goarshausan, Germany lies the Lorelei Rock, named after a legendary maiden who cast herself into the sea after she discovered that her lover was unfaithful.
She became a siren who lured sailors to their deaths on the rocks through her beauty. The area by the Lorelei Rock produces a constant echoing sound, and for many centuries this was attributed to the mournful cries of the young maiden Lorelei.
They were seals who came from the ocean onto land and shed their seal skin, becoming beautiful women. They were very family-oriented and were discouraged from wandering away from their seal families.
They sometimes married human men, however, and made good, faithful wives. Selkies would usually grow tired of life on land and would return to the sea, usually leaving while their husbands were away at work.
Some husbands tried to prevent their selkie wives from returning home by withholding the magical talismans the selkies required in order to regrow their seal skin.
In most of these stories, however, the wives found the hidden talismans and left their husbands. Roman poets placed them on some small islands called Sirenum scopuli.
In some later, rationalized traditions, the literal geography of the "flowery" island of Anthemoessa , or Anthemusa,  is fixed: sometimes on Cape Pelorum and at others in the islands known as the Sirenuse , near Paestum , or in Capreae.
The first were under the government of Zeus , the second under that of Poseidon , and the third of Hades. When the soul is in heaven the Sirens seek, by harmonic motion, to unite it to the divine life of the celestial host; and when in Hades, to conform the soul to eternal infernal regimen; but when on earth their only job to "produce generation, of which the sea is emblematic".
The etymology of the name is contested. Robert S. Beekes has suggested a Pre-Greek origin. This could be connected to the famous scene of Odysseus being bound to the mast of his ship, in order to resist their song.
The English word " siren ", referring to a noise-making device, derives from the name. Sirens were believed to look like a combination of women and birds in various different forms.
In early Greek art, they were represented as birds with large women's heads, bird feathers and scaly feet. Later, they were represented as female figures with the legs of birds, with or without wings, playing a variety of musical instruments, especially harps and lyres.
The seventh-century Anglo-Latin catalogue Liber Monstrorum says that Sirens were women from their heads to their navels, and instead of legs they had fish tails.
By the Middle Ages, the figure of the Siren had transformed into the enduring mermaid figure. Originally, Sirens were shown to be male or female, but the male Siren disappeared from art around the fifth century BC.
The first-century Roman historian Pliny the Elder discounted Sirens as a pure fable, "although Dinon, the father of Clearchus, a celebrated writer, asserts that they exist in India , and that they charm men by their song, and, having first lulled them to sleep, tear them to pieces.
Although a Sophocles fragment makes Phorcys their father,  when Sirens are named, they are usually as daughters of the river god Achelous ,  with Terpsichore ,  Melpomene ,  Calliope  or Sterope.
Roman writers linked them more closely to the sea, as daughters of Phorcys. Their number is variously reported as from two to eight.
According to Hyginus , Sirens were fated to live only until the mortals who heard their songs were able to pass by them.
It is said that Hera , queen of the gods, persuaded the Sirens to enter a singing contest with the Muses. Odysseus himself wanted to hear their song but had himself tied to the mast so that he would not be able to steer the ship off its course.
After she was carried off by Hades , they sought her everywhere and finally prayed for wings to fly across the sea.
The gods granted their prayer. In some versions Demeter turned them into birds to punish them for not guarding Persephone.
In art the Sirens appeared first as birds with the heads of women and later as women, sometimes winged, with bird legs.
The Sirens seem to have evolved from an ancient tale of the perils of early exploration combined with an Asian image of a bird-woman. Anthropologists explain the Asian image as a soul-bird—i.
In that respect the Sirens had affinities with the Harpies. Siren Article Media Additional Info.
