"The Island of Seriphus and an Adventure Far from Home"
Setting of the Story
In the story The Gorgon's Head, the characters of Perseus and Medusa in the story is a classic quest. Pers us starts out at home, the island of Seriphus, leaves to embark on his adventures with this mission - to get Medusa's head and then returns home to Seriphus when he has achieved his goal.
Seriphus is an island located in the Aegean Sea. This sea is a part of the Mediterranean region that separates Greece and Turkey. Perseus' adventures take him to some distant, some mythical places, including the home of the Graeae where the home of the Nymphai, and the cave of the Gorgons. Perseus also flies over Africa, where he happens upon the Princess Andromeda.
Is the story The Gorgon's Head can be real? Even though the places are real, the scenes were not possible to be real one. Because he journeys to so many far off places, his adventures seem very epic and fantastic.
