Icarus


The following is a story from Greek Mythology.

Icarus is the son of Daedalus who is the maker of the Labyrinth (maze) for King Minos.

One day, due to an unforeseen circumstance, King Minos became upset with the maze that Daedalus had built. He punished Daedalus and his son, Icarus, by imprisoning them on the Island of Crete. To escape their imprisonment, Daedalus made wings with the feathers of birds. He then used wax to attach the wings to their arms. Before they flew off, he told Icarus not to fly too near to the
Sun.

However, when they got to the skies, Icarus became delighted with the dizzying heights. He forgot the advice his father gave him and flew higher and higher. The
heat from the Sun soon melted the wax and his wings were detached.

Icarus fell back to
Earth.
