Seeing that Apollo was bound to reach her, she called upon her father, "Help me, Peneus! Open the earth to enclose me, or change my form, which has brought me into this danger!
Daphne () - IMDb
Let me be free of this man from this moment forward! Apollo vowed to honor her forever: You will be present to two Latin places when the happy voice will sing a triumph and they will visit the great ceremonies at the Capitoline Hill.
Apollo also used his powers of eternal youth and immortality to render Daphne evergreen. For this reason, the leaves of the Bay laurel tree do not decay.
Apollo clutches Daphne's hip, pursuing her as she flees to escape him. Apollo wears a laurel crown, and Daphne is portrayed halfway through her metamorphosis into the laurel tree with her arms already transforming into its branches as she flees and calls to her father to save her from Apollo. Artists such as Antonio del Pollaiolo and his brother Piero often manipulated scenes from Greek mythology into the setting of their time periods.
It hangs in the National Gallery in London. It has been argued that The Kiss by Gustav Klimt is a painting symbolic of the kissing of Daphne by Apollo at the moment she is transformed into a laurel tree. The myth of Apollo and Daphne has been examined as a battle between chastity Daphne and sexual desire Apollo. As Apollo lustfully pursues Daphne, she is saved through her metamorphosis and confinement into the laurel tree which can be seen as an act of eternal chastity.
Daphne is forced to sacrifice her body and become the laurel tree as her only form of escape from the pressures of Apollo's constant sexual desires. Apollo crafts himself a wreath out of her laurel branches and turning her symbol of chastity into a cultural symbol for him and other poets and musicians.
In Ovid's Metamorphoses , Book I: Apollo and Daphne, Ovid uses animals to make the emotions of characters more relatable to the reader. Ovid characterizes Apollo's pursuit for Daphne as more animalistic than human, and creates the metaphor of a predator and its prey to show the connection between the two. Ovid writes, "sic agna lupum, sic cerva leonem, sic aquilam penna fugiunt trepidante columbae," meaning, "Thus a young lamb flees the wolf, thus the doe flees the lion, thus the dove flees the eagle, wing trembling.
The word "fugere" shows the urgency about and genuine fear of the predator.
Apollo and Daphne
Ovid uses the word "fugiunt" in the present tense, showing that the prey is still fleeing its predator. Ovid's use of animals allows us to truly understand exactly what is happening in the moments between Daphne and Apollo. He is able to relate the characteristics of the animals to the characters in his story. Apollo claims that his reason for following is out of love, but the tone we get from it is like an animal stalking its prey out of hunger, as if without seizing this prey they will die.
The project establishes a well-managed working platform which tackles the most urgent insufficiencies with the help of guidelines, recommendations and concrete pilot activities based on good practices leading into an overall development strategy and action plan for the Danube ports. Special attention is paid to human capacity building and eco-improvement options for the port sector. The solutions elaborated by the consortium will be shared with more than 60 Danube ports as possible blueprints by building a Danube Port Network, which shall emerge into a Danube Port Network Organisation to ensure durability of the results and their continuous further development.
DAPhNE project partners have been from the beginning very active in participating at relevant conferences and promoting the project amongst stakeholders.
