The nymphs reply to the shepherd

In Marlowe's poem, the shepherd woos his love by making promises of an idyllic pastoral life and all sorts of material benefits if she chooses to be with him. In The Nymph's reply to the Shepherd, Raleigh's nymph rejects the shepherd's advances since she finds his promises unsatisfying and hardly commensurate to her expectations In The Nymph's reply to the Shepherd, Raleigh's nymph rejects the shepherd's advances since she finds his promises unsatisfying and hardly commensurate to her expectations of what an ideal relationship is like. Her comments clearly indicate that she finds the shepherd's promises limited since they are restricted to material values and do not relate to true commitment and loyalty at all.

Grant Roman mythographer C2nd A. Juno [Hera], however, took Jove to the island of Crete, and Amalthea, the child's nurse, hung him in a cradle from a tree, so that he could be found neither in heaven nor on earth nor in the sea. And lest the cries of the baby be heard, she summoned youths and gave them small brazen shields and spears, and bade them go around the tree making a noise.

In Greek they are called Curetes. They tell this story about him. Others have said that certain cities were named from them--Olenus in Aulis, Helice in the Peloponnesus Peloponneseand Aex in Haemonia--about which Homer writes in the second book of the Iliad.

But Parmeniscus say that a certain Melisseus was king in Crete, and to his daughters Jove [Zeus] was brought to nurse. Since they did not have milk, they furnished him a she-goat, Amalthea by name, who is said to have reared him. She often bore twin kids, and at the very time that Jove was brought to her to nurse, had borne a pair.

And so because of the kindness of the mother, the kids, too were placed among the constellations. Cleostratus of Tenedos [astronomer C5th B.

Now Amalthea had as a pet a certain goat which is said to have nursed Jove. Some have called Aex [a Gorgon] the daughter of Sol [Helios], who surpassed many in beauty of body, but in contrast to this beauty, had a most horrible face.

Terrified by it, the Titanes begged Terra Earth [Gaia] to hide her body, and Terra is said to have hidden her in a cave in the island of Crete.

Later she became nurse of Jove [Zeus], as we have said before. But when Jupiter [Zeus], confident in his youth, was preparing for war against the Titanes, oracular reply was given to him that if he wished to win, he should carry on the war protected with the skin of a goat, aigos, and the head of the Gorgon.

The Greeks call this the aegis.

When this was done, as we have shown above, Jupiter, overcoming the Titanes, gained possession of the kingdom. Covering the remaining bones of the goat with a skin, he gave life to them and memorialised them, picturing them with stars.

Afterwards he gave to Minerva [Athena] the aegis with which he had been protected. Boyle Roman poetry C1st B. The rainy sign of Olenian Capella is born. Heaven is her reward for giving milk. Naiad Amalthea, famous on Cretan Ida, hid Jupiter, it is said, in the forest. She possessed the lovely mother of two young goats, a glorious sight among Dicte's flocks, with soaring horns curled round her back and an udder suitable for the nurse of Jupiter.

She gave the god milk, but snapped her horn on a tree and was severed from half her loveliness. The Nympha picked the horn up, ringed it with fresh herbs, and took it fruit-filled to Jupiter's lips.

When he controlled the sky and sat on his father's throne and nothing surpasses unconquered Jove, he made stars of the nurse and the nurse's fruitful horn, which bears even now its mistress' name.
