Lines On Brueghel S Icarus

Simone Buzzi, Simone.Buzzi@unil.ch   The Insignificant Fall of Icarus in Pieter Brueghel’s painting and William Carlos Williams’s poem Landscape with the Fall of Icarus After Ovid’s narration of the Greek myth of Icarus in the Metamorphoses (AD 8), the legend has been transported, represented and interpreted through the time by several artists.

In the poem “Icarus” by Edward Field, a mythological character is placed in a contemporary setting of the modern world. Field uses figurative language, irony and perspectives in the poem to give the myth a modernized view. A shift occurs and what was once right created an immense impact in Icarus’s life. The poem mirrors the myth by the prison escape, and the plummet to the death of Icarus, but states what has happened after his alleged “death”. A witness to Icarus’s break out of prison “ran off...

Icarus: From Hero to Zero In the Greek myth of Daedalus and Icarus, Icarus foolishly flies too close to the sun, which melts his waxed wings, causing him to tumble down to earth. In his poem “Icarus,” Edward Field drastically alters this tale by allowing Icarus to survive this catastrophic fall. Field adapts this myth to a contemporary setting, thereby reducing Icarus to a mere human, through his selection of detail, melancholy tone, and paradoxical circumstances. In the first stanza of the...
