Ancient Greek Myths Theseus and the Minotaur Assembly. Sample Text:
Theseus: Greedy and extremely foolish, I’d say.
Minos (aside): If there’s one thing I can’t stand it’s a full-of-himself, self-satisfied hero! So easy to say what’s right and what’s wrong after the event. What a great thing is hindsight!
Minotaur: Oh do stop your whingeing! Anyone would think it was you that suffered the consequences of your bad judgement!
Pasiphae: Huh! If only! When he found out about Minos’s deceit, Poseidon made me fall in love with the white bull my husband had kept back, and so I gave birth to
Minos: A monster truly horrible to behold!
Minotaur(sarcastically)I see compassion and pity are still high on your list of fatherly qualities.
Minos: It was just so shameful having a son …. Like you! Half man, half beast. What else could I have been expected to do, other than hide you away?
Pasiphae: With me! In a labyrinth, under your palace at Knossos.
Minotaur: With no escape. No light. No warmth. Just left to die. Had you no shame?
Pasiphae: How could you?
Minotaur: To have me as a son was your fault!
