The Myth of Daedalus and Icarus: Cunningly Wrought


My ambition for this project was to retell the ancient myth of Icarus; his father Daedalus; and hubris. To retell this I wanted to show each step in this journey, from the crafting of the wings to the fall and mourning. Daedalus (δαίδαλος) translates from Greek to Cunningly Wrought. I thought this would make a good title to this booklet because wrought has two modern meanings. Work or shaped his creations or wrought with guilt.
