Daedalus and Icarus by Ovid and To a Friend Whose Work has Come To Triumph by Anne Sexton are divergent from the aspects of experience in flying Ovid makes the reader think what is going to happen if Icarus does not listen but Sexton praises Icarus instead of being seen as arrogant Ovid describes the flight as something negative causing death Instead Sexton writes how Icaruss flight was amazing in admiration Lastly their themes are unlike Sexton believes that one should take consequences in adventure but Ovid thinks that taking risks is negative because of tragic resultsDaedalus and Icarus Ovid describes this myth as a mistake of flying without thinking and knowing the dangers of others lives Sadly Icarus passed away His father Daedalus was searching for him until wings floating in the waves lines 363 and 364 Interpreting he discovers the decease body of his son attributable to not listening on flying with caution The vigilance Daedalus warns his son caution you to keep middle way line 318 The author uses arrogance by the son not listening to his father and thinking he is the one who shall do what he wishes no matter what the cost is In the end his theme actions of willing risks is believe to be inaccurateOn the contrast Sexton strongly is in awe with Icarus actions The poet makes it clear as clean pure water that Icarus chooses was to experience adventure She admires his flight and on line 12 she rejoices Who cares that he fell back to the sea This quote represents how she does not mind that he dies but takes notice on his wiliness to be free The point of her theme is one should take risks live life and have adventures with no regretsIn conclusion both writers have different views on the actions of Icarus Sexton thinks more on the contrary of a positive aspect Thus Ovid believes this is a flaw
