Monsters appear in several stories we have read over the course of the semester. This site serves to investigate the roles that monsters have played in these stories, as well as similarites and differences in how these monsters are portrayed and used.

1. An imaginary or legendary creature, such as a centaur or Harpy, that combines parts from various animal or human forms.
2. A creature having a strange or frightening appearance.
2. An animal, a plant, or other organism having structural defects or deformities.
3. A very large animal, plant, or object.
5. One who inspires horror or disgust


I will be exploring monsters from:
*The Odyssey
*Oedipus the King
*The Inferno
