Text Preview Hero and Leander Presentation Speech

This story began with Hero living in Sestos and Leander living in Abydos. Now Hero was said to have had Apollo and Cupid try to get her hand in marriage, but she didn’t marry either of them. Instead she became a priestess for Venus. One day Hero had to give Venus honor and it was also the day that Leander was in Sestos as well that day. When the two saw each other they fell in love at first sight. Hero’s parents forbade her to see Leander, but neither of them wanted that to happen. They set up codes to know when to meet each other. At night Hero would light a lantern and put it at the top of the tower of the temple, then Leander would swim the Hells point, they would see each other for an hour or so then go back to their respective homes. But one night Hero put up her lantern to signal Leander to swim to her. One thing she didn’t know was coming was a storm that arrived just after he embarked on his journey to her. The strong winds blew out the lantern so Leander had nothing to follow to find Hero. Instead of swimming to safety, he swam out to sea. The storm was too much for him to handle so he eventually perished in the storm. The next day Hero went to look for him, he ended up washing up onto the shore right at Hero’s feet. She was so over stricken with grief that she threw herself into the sea and ended up drowning. Show More
