None of the Goddess myths portray the intensely emotional mother daughter relationship more than that of Demeter and her daughter Persephone.
Like every good story, there is a beginning, middle and end. It begins with Persephone as the epitome of innocence and beauty, just as every daughter is to her own mother. In the middle is the metaphorical death of Persephone when she is abducted by Hades and descends to the underworld, followed by Demeter’s inconsolable grief. In the end a new way of life is forged; a compromise that serves both daughter and mother.
One could argue that Persephone was not abducted, but rather she was lured by bad boy Hades and willingly descended with him to the Underworld. And despite varying accounts of deals made for her rescue and return to her mother for part of the year, it may be interpreted that she herself returned to her mother on her own terms.
