Title: Hated Hades and provoked Pluto : characterizing Hades, Pluto, and the transition between the Greek and Roman Gods in antiquity and in the modern works of Rick Riordan
Author: Lee, James I.
Type: Thesis
Issue Date: 2012
Abstract: This thesis investigates and analyzes the portrayal of the ancient Greek god Hades and his Roman counterpart Pluto in the ancient Greek and Roman literature and in Rick Riordan’s modern children’s literature novel series: Percy Jackson and the Olympians and Heroes of Olympus. Ultimately Rick Riordan’s Hades and Pluto show an inversion of the gods’ personalities from antiquity: in antiquity the Greek god Hades is depicted as a fearsome and law-abiding god while the Roman god Pluto is similarly law-abiding but is also angry, embittered, and rage-driven. In Riordan’s novels Hades is the embittered and angry god while Pluto is very calm and dignified.
