Dig into the Greek myth of Persephone, who is abducted by Hades and is only allowed to leave the underworld every spring.
One day, Persephone was frolicking in a meadow with the nymph, Cyane. As they admired a flower, they noticed it tremble in the ground. Suddenly, the earth split, and a terrifying figure arose. It was Hades, god of the underworld. He wrenched Persephone from Cyane, dragged her into his inky chariot, and blasted back through the earth. IseultGillespie shares the myth of the goddess of spring.
