Read the myth and look for information about the Caravaggio´s picture: Bacco
Dionysos was the great Olympian god of wine, vegetation, pleasure and festivity. He was depicted as either an older bearded god or a pretty effeminate, long-haired youth. His attributes included the thyrsos (a pine-cone tipped staff), drinking cup, leopard and fruiting vine. He was usually accompanied by a troop of Satyrs and Mainades (female devotees or nymphs).

They are the three daughters of Zeus and the nymph Eurynome and they are the goddesses of “Radiance,” “Joy,” “Fruitfulness,” “Splendor,” “Mirth,” “Good Cheer,” and many other things. The three of them preside over happy events amongst mortals and gods -- gatherings with friends, dances and celebrations. They would also dance for Apollo to the beautiful music from his lyre, and they would inspire mortal artists with abilities – similar to the Muses.

Read and listen the third soliloquy from Hamlet and answer the questions.
ACT.--------- SCENE ------------
To be, or not to be: that is the question:Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to sufferThe slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,And by opposing end them? To die: to sleep;No more; and by a sleep to say we endThe heart-ache and the thousand natural shocksThat flesh is heir to, 'tis a consummationDevoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep;To sleep: perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub;For in that sleep of death what dreams may comeWhen we have shuffled off this mortal coil,Must give us pause: there's the respectThat makes calamity of so long life;For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,The oppressor's wrong, the proud man's contumely,The pangs of despised love, the law's delay,The insolence of office and the spurnsThat patient merit of the unworthy takes,When he himself might his quietus makeWith a bare bodkin? who would fardels bear,To grunt and sweat under a weary life,But that the dread of something after death,The undiscover'd country from whose bournNo traveller returns, puzzles the willAnd makes us rather bear those ills we haveThan fly to others that we know not of?Thus conscience does make cowards of us all;And thus the native hue of resolutionIs sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,And enterprises of great pith and moment
a ) Who is speaking ?
b ) ¿ What is the main idea in this soliloquy ?
c ) Would you set it among the different acts ?

Electric has to do with the general concept of electricity. It is generally acceptable to use the terms electric and electrical interchangeably. Essentially, the word "electric" will function as a way of qualifying the flow of electricity as it relates to a specific event. For example, if a fire starts due to a problem with wiring in a building, the event can be described as an electric or electrical fire, caused by the electric or electrical wiring. The use of electric identifies a source of power that serves to create a logical effect when conducted through a process or device.
In contrast, electronic is a term that is descriptive of devices that are powered by electricity. An electronic device is often constructed using one or more electric elements that make it possible to manage the flow of electricity into the device. A television is a good example, since it is partially composed of a series of individual electric components that help to conduct the flow of electricity. In like manner, desktop and laptop computers are electronic in nature. Handheld devices such as cell phones are also electronic, while operating with the use of an electric component – a battery.

She was goddess of chastity, virginity, the hunt, the moon, and the natural environment. Artemis is the daughter of Zeus and Leto. Her twin brother is Apollo. She is the lady of the wild things. She is the huntsman of the gods. She is the protector of the young. Like Apollo she hunts with silver arrows. She became associated with the moon. She is a virgin goddess, and the goddess of chastity. She also presides over childbirth, which may seem odd for a virgin, but goes back to causing Leto no pain when she was born. She became associated with Hecate. The cypress is her tree. All wild animals are scared to her, especially the deer.

And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you --- --- and not make dreams your master;
If you --- ---- - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've ------
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one -------of all your winnings

If you can ---- with crowds and keep your virtue,

Si puedes llevar la cabeza sobre los hombros
bien puesta,... cuando otros la pierden y de ello
Si puedes confiar en tí cuando todos de tí dudan, ...
pero tomas en cuenta sus dudas;
Si puedes esperar sin que te canse la espera,
o soportar calumnias sin pagar con la misma
o ser odiado sin dar cabida al odio, ...
y no por eso parecer demasiado bueno o sabio;
Si puedes soñar sin que tus sueños te dominen;
Si puedes pensar sin que tus pensamientos sean
Si puedes habértelas con Triunfo y Desastre
y tratar por igual a ambos farsantes;
Si puedes tolerar que los bribones
tergiversen la verdad que has expresado
y la convierten en trampa para necios,
o ver en ruinas la obra de tu vida
y agacharte y reconstruirla con viejas
Si puedes hacer un atado con todas tus
y arrojarlas al capricho del azar,
y perderlas y volver a empezar desde el principio
sin que salga de tus labios una queja;
Si puedes poner al servicio de tus fines el corazón,
el entusiasmo y la fortaleza, aún agotados,
Y resistir aunque no te quede ya nada..,
Salvo la voluntad que te diga ¨Adelante!¨;
Si puedes dirigirte a las multitudes sin perder la
y codearte con reyes sin perder la sencillez;
Si no pueden herirte amigos ni enemigos;
Si todos cuentan contigo en demasía;
Si puedes llenar el implacable minuto,
con sesenta segundos de esfuerzo denodado,
Tuya es la Tierra y cuanto en ella hay,
Y más aún, Serás un hombre, hijo mío!
