> THE MYTH OF PERSEPHONE
> According to myth, Persephone, maiden goddess and daughter of earth
> goddess Demeter, is captured by Hades and forced to live in the
> Underworld with him as his consort and queen. Demeter, enraged and
> grief-stricken over the abduction of her daughter, allows everything on
> earth to die. To help gain Persephone's release, she appeals to several
> of the male gods; they comply and Hades is forced to release Persephone.
> However, while living in the Underworld, Persephone has eaten seeds of
> the pomegranate (food of the dead), and she is forced by cosmic law to
> return to the Hades for a portion of each year, thus creating vegetative
> cycles and seasons.
> 
> In this re-imagining of the myth, Persephone may or may not be a willing
> participant in her own abduction. The night before she must return to
> Demeter, Hades throws a festive farewell party in his queen's honor and
> the partygoers feast on pomegranate seeds which may or may not be
> hallucinogenic. A hedonistic Bacchanalian fest ensues as revelers
> celebrate Persephone's last night. Hangovers abound as Demeter comes to
> claim her daughter.
