Mythology and Humanities in the Ancient World
Delahoyde & Hughes
Project Orpheus --
a web resource in gradual progress designed primarily for teachers, but
also for students, of Classical Mythology and Humanities in the Ancient
World -- has been one of the new millennium projects for Michael Delahoyde
and Collin Hughes, clinical faculty in the English Department at Washington
State University (Hughes formerly), launched with the help of Co-Teach
support and maintained through the benevolence of the General Education
department. This Delahoyde portion of the site will continue to be integrated
with the Hughes material in the coming years, even if Collin sticks with
selling Hondas and never comes back to the happy squalor.
The Orpheus of classical myth serves
as an inspiration to teachers.
His lyrical talents are inspirational
and the miseries of the underworld
grind to a halt when he is en forme.
He has been to hell and back.
Even torn apart and decapitated
by mindless bacchanals,
his music continues to sweeten
the lives those who would listen.
