First of all, some general facts of a mother-daughter relationship are given, in order to establish a relationship to the principal topic of this research paper, from Jungian theory to Eleusinian mysteries. Next, the close relation between life, death and fertility is to be investigated, in order to establish another relationship between myth and novel, and, further, it shall be investigated, in how far Demeter is represented in the protagonist Rachel and not only in her mother May. In opposition to the eternal dyad between mother and son, which, according to Adrienne Rich, is always the representation in divinity, sociology, art and psychoanalytic theory  , Laurence, in her novel A Jest of God , narrates the story of the close bonding between Rachel Cameron and her mother May. According to Nancy Bailey, Laurence can be regarded as a Jungian writer:. Thirty-four-year-old Rachel Cameron, works as a schoolteacher in the fictitious town of Manawaka. Without living a satisfying life with social contacts and intimate relationships, the dark atmosphere in which Rachel lives, not least because of all the dead surrounding her, may be seen as a parallel to the netherworld in Greek mythology.
Zeus, the king of all the gods, had two brothers and three sisters. All the gods had jobs, but his sister Demeter had one of the most important jobs - she was in charge of the harvest. There were many temples in ancient Greece dedicated to Demeter. Nearly everyone, gods and mortals, did their best to keep Demeter happy. If Demeter did not do her job, the crops would die and everyone would starve.

Though Demeter is often described simply as the goddess of the harvest, she presided also over the sacred law , and the cycle of life and death. She and her daughter Persephone were the central figures of the Eleusinian Mysteries , a religious tradition that predated the Olympian pantheon , and which may have its roots in the Mycenaean period c. It is possible that Demeter appears in Linear A as da-ma-te on three documents AR Zf 1 and 2, and KY Za 2 , all three apparently dedicated in religious situations and all three bearing just the name i-da-ma-te on AR Zf 1 and 2. Beekes rejects a Greek interpretation, but not necessarily an Indo-European one. Demeter was frequently associated with images of the harvest, including flowers, fruit, and grain.
Demeter and Persephone. Deep under Mt. Aetna, the gods had buried alive a number of fearful, fire-breathing giants. The monsters heaved arid struggled to get free. And so mightily did they shake the earth that Pluto, the king of the underworld, was alarmed. And mounting his golden chariot, he went up to see what damage had been done.

Demeter was the most nurturing of goddesses and, in turn, was the most nurturing of mothers. She cared as deeply for her daughter Persephone as she did the earth. Persephone lived a happy, fruitful childhood, playing with the other Olympian children and spending time in the gardens of Olympus. On one occasion however, as Persephone was picking the flower, narcissus, with a group of her favourite flora nymphs, the earth suddenly opened up. Out of the deep, dark blackness Hades emerged. He desperately wanted her to be his Queen of the Underworld.
Сьюзан это позабавило. Стратмор был блестящими программистом-криптографом, но его диапазон был ограничен работой с алгоритмами и тонкости этой не столь уж изощренной и устаревшей технологии программирования часто от него ускользали. К тому же Сьюзан написала свой маячок на новом гибридном языке, именуемом LIMBO, поэтому не приходилось удивляться, что Стратмор с ним не справился. - Я возьму это на себя, - улыбнулась она, вставая.
Она оглянулась и застонала. У входа стоял криптограф Грег Хейл. Это был высокий мужчина крепкого сложения с густыми светлыми волосами и глубокой ямкой на подбородке. Он отличался громким голосом и безвкусно-крикливой манерой одеваться.
