The Boy Who Flew Too High


The myth from ancient Greece of the boy who flew too close to the sun. It continues the story of Daedalus, who also appears in The Minotaur. 

We hear how he and his son Icarus try to escape from Crete with wings made of feathers and wax. Some of the touching details - such as Icarus playing with the feathers - come from the Latin poet, Ovid.
