Perks of Being a Wallflower
Connecting my book to Greek Mythology
This book was written by Stephen Chbosky
1. Euridice's death was very sudden and unexpected. She was killed, like Aunt Helen was.
2. After losing Euridice again Orpheus plays his lyre as and escape and a companion like how Charlie writes and listens to music to escape his loneliness.
3. Euridice was friends with only the forest and the plants and animals, Charlie before he met Sam and Patrick was only friends with his books and basically himself.
4. Apollo tried to get Euridice to get with him and leave Orpheus, like how Charlie wanted Sam to leave her boyfriend to get with him except Charlie wasn't aggressive or demanding about it like Apollo was.
Critique of the book
Greek mythology really does connect to modern day literature because some of the greatest stories of all time like Romeo and Juliet have come from or is really similar to stories like Thisbe and Pyramus or how Psyche and Eros is like Sleeping Beauty or Snow White.
