He didn’t listen to his fathers wise words. Icarus was told to fly, but not to low because the spray of the sea will make the wings wet and heavy. But certainly not to high because if you get too close to the sun the wax (used to hold the wings together) would melt. In essence he told him he should not be lazy, or complacent, but he should also not succumb to hubris or else he would fall. For thousands of years Icarus was the bad example. He was a warning to young people not to get too many ideas. He was hubris incarnate. Then came the romantic era. Striving for an impossible ideal became romantic. Dying while trying to achieve something had become heroic, instead of impractical. In that spirit Icarus became a romantic hero who had tried to reach the heavens only to fall back to earth. That is how Draper painted him. He has come close to the sun. We can see that from his tan. In this case his wings have not fallen apart, otherwise how could we tell it is Icarus. And in stead of just drowning in the sea, beautiful nymphs have come to lament over his very attractive (at least thats what I am told) corpse. So cool to see how differently you can interpret even an age old story. The Lament for Icarus, H. J. Draper, 1898, Tate Britain, London. gallery
