Nauta´s Mini Mythology - Eos / Mini Mitología de Nauta - Eos



Nauta

I should have come here today with plugs in my ears due to a disturbance in my neighbourhood that has been going on since the Epiphany. But the person who does these illustrations, and those of the Toora Chronicles, is not available, although she did send me the picture that goes with this post.

Hoy debería aparecer aquí con tapones en los oídos, debido a un disturbio que se está produciendo en mi vecindario desde el día de reyes, pero la persona que habitualmente ilustra esta sección, así como las Crónicas Toora, no está disponible, aunque sí me ha hecho llegar la ilustración que corresponde al tema a tratar en esta entrada.



Eos is the Greek goddess of the dawn. We Romans call her Aurora. Eos appears in the sky every morning in her chariot drawn by her two horses Firebright and Daybright. Yes, in the illustration she has four horses. Somebody must have given the two new ones to her for Christmas.

Eos es la diosa griega del amanecer. Nosotros los romanos la llamamos Aurora. Eos aparece en el cielo cada mañana en su carro tirado por dos caballos, uno brillante como el fuego y otro que brilla como el día. Sí, en la ilustración tiene cuatro. Le han debido de regalar los dos nuevos por Reyes.

Eos is preceded only by her son Phosphorus who slowly marches in front of his mother’s chariot carrying a torch with which he lights the planet Venus. Because of this, Phosphorus is called the Morning Star. He has a twin brother called Hesperus who is the Evening Star because he also lights up Venus, but in the evening.

A Eos sólo la precede su hijo Fósforo, que desfila despacito delante del carro de su madre cargando una antorcha con la que ilumina el planeta Venus. Por este motivo le llamamos “el lucero del alba.” Tiene un hermano gemelo de nombre Héspero, llamado "el lucero vespertino" porque también ilumina el planeta Venus, pero al atardecer.



Hesperus and Phosphorus / Héspero y Fósforo

The planet Venus shines more than the stars.

El planeta Venus brilla más que las estrellas.


Eos is very popular among poets, who love to sing about her saffron robes and pink fingers and golden sandals and other fancy trappings.

Eos es muy popular entre los poetas y les encanta cantar sobre su túnica de color azafrán, sus dedos rosados, sus sandalias de oro y otros atributos bonitos.

Homer / Omero

When now Aurora… with her rosy luster purpled o’er the lawn…

Cuando Aurora…con su lustre rosado tornó morado el césped…

Soon as the early, rosy-fingered dawn appeared…

Tan pronto como la temprana aurora de dedos rosados apareció…


Sappho / Safo

In gold sandals Dawn like a thief fell upon me.

Con sus sandalias doradas la aurora cayó sobre mi como un ladrón.


If you look closely, you will see that there is yet another in our illustration of the myth of Eos. Can you see the tiny cricket with skin so transparent that it looks like a lifeless shell?

Si te fijas bien, descubrirás que todavía hay alguien más en la ilustración del mito de Eos. ¿Puedes ver al grillo chiquito con piel tan transparente que parece una concha sin vida?

The cricket is Tithonus. Eos fell in love with him when he was a splendid young man. She asked the gods to grant him eternal life so that they could be together forever.

El grillo es Titono. Eos se enamoró de él cuando era un joven guapísimo. Ella pidió a los dioses que le concediesen el don de la inmortalidad para que pudiesen estar siempre juntos.

But she forgot to ask for the gift of eternal youth for him. Tithonus would live forever, but he would get older every day.

Pero se la olvidó pedir para él el don de la juventud eterna. Titono viviría para siempre, pero envejecería más y más cada día.

Eos could not bear to look at him when he was over a hundred, so she turned him into a cricket feeling he would not look as frightful in this guise as he did as a man.

Eos no podía soportar verle envejecer y cuando cumplió más de cien años le convirtió en un grillo pensando que así no tendría un aspecto tan espantoso como el que tenía en forma de hombre.

Tithonus / Titono

The woods decay and fall,
The vapours weep their burthen to the ground
Man comes and tills the field and lies beneath,
And after many a summer dies the swan.
Me only cruel immortality
Consumes: I wither slowly in thine arms,
Here at the quiet limit of the world,
A white-haired shadow roaming like a dream
The ever silent spaces of the East,
Far-folded mists, and gleaming hills of morn.

Los bosques decaen y caen,
Los vapores lloran su carga a la tierra,
El hombre viene y ara los campos y yace debajo,
Y tras muchos veranos muere el cisne.
Sólo a mí, la cruel inmortalidad
Consume: Me marchito lentamente en tus brazos,
Aquí en el quedo confín del mundo,
Una sombra canosa que vaga como un sueño
Por los espacios siempre silenciosos del Este,
Las infinitas brumas de rocío y las relucientes colinas del amanecer.



Alfred, Lord Tennyson

I made Tithonus say all that and more in my poem “Tithonus.” Do you remember me? I’ve visited this blog before. I participated in a contest of good-looking fellows…

Yo hice que Titono dijese eso de arriba y más en mi poema “Titono.” ¿Os acordáis de mí? He estado en este blog antes. Participé en un concurso de guapos…

Excepting the drawing of me and our illustration of Eos, Hesperus and the cricketTithonus, we found all the photos in this post on the Internet.

Exceptuando el dibujo de mí y nuestra ilustración de Eos, Fósforo y el grillo Titono, encontramos las fotos de esta entrada en Internet.
