Today is when I will be discussing how I first became aware of the Lord Haides. I honestly can say that I first became aware of him about eight by reading the D’Aulaires’ Book of Greek Myths, but didn’t understand how important Haides actually was in the Cosmos because there are relatively few myths about him relative to his brothers.
It was only as I became older that I went back and re-read the mythology which I had read as a child and began to see them in a more nuanced way. This started about the time I was fourteen upon the passing of my yiayia. This was something that helped me realize the importance of the Underworld in the overall scheme of things and along with that the importance of the Lord of the Underworld. These things will help me later this month.
