See Now Then is the story of Mr. and Mrs. Sweet and their two children Persephone and Heracles.
One could have found men who were said to have fought alongside Heracles.
Heracles goes on his twelve labours, not to better mankind, but to achieve immortality and atone for his own sins.
Mythic heroes, especially Heracles, wrestled monsters and wild beasts at the beginning of time.
So Heracles loosed him from his chain, and brought him up to the light once more.
By Heracles, I said, there never was such a paragon, if he has only one other slight addition.
Having collected a large army Heracles set out for Eubœa in order to besiege Œchalia, its capital.
Of whom are Heracles and the Dioscuri, and there are others also named.
The burial is finished when Heracles, already revelling and drunken and crowned with flowers, learns the truth.
You are a strange mixture, Heracles; strangely contradictory.
