Name: Taffy 21st November 2012
I'm a little confused...I always thought she could only eat pomegranates in Hades, and the amount of seeds she ingested was the amount of days she had to spend there each year after Hades released her? For example, for the sake of argument, say she ate 3 seeds, she would have to spend 3 days a year in Hades ever after. (I can't remember the exact number of seeds she allegedly ate) I probably have it wrong though.:)
Name: Bethan 29th November 2012
This story is just about correct. I am 13 and know this story of by heart. You have got some things wrong. And to Taffy you a very very wrong.

Name: Anne 6th July 2013
I enjoyed reading the story.

But, you know, I never understood why Persephone had to return to Hades because she had eaten some pomegranate seeds.

Can you understand this?
Name: Jasmine 15th July 2013
Name: Cynthia 21st July 2013
It is a rule of the underworld that if a living being were to consume a fruit of the underworld, their soul would be trapped. It's the reason why Zeus couldn't just take Persephone back, he had to comply with the rule and make a compromise. The story fails to mention that Hades was already in love with Persephone because he was shot by Cupid's arrow while Persephone was picking flowers from a meadow. When she was separated from her attendant, a crack was formed in the earth and out of it came Hades in a black chariot. He took Persephone, holding her tightly to him, and dragged her back to the underworld. Also, Zeus ruled that half the year would be spent with Demeter (Summer and Spring) and half with Hades (Fall and Winter).

Name: Mrs K 17th January 2014
I don't think this story is very clear at all, it lacks important detail and doesn't really make sense at all. I had to look at another version to understand what it is really about. Sorry.
Name: Riina 4th February 2014
Some versions say 6 months, some say three. It all depended on how long winter lasted in the place the story was told.
Name: Bob 4th February 2014
I didn\'t like it at all
Name: Amy 13th February 2014
This is a good story, but it has too little information on what happened while Persephone was in the underworld and how she was found. Also, the last paragraph is very confusing.
Name: Holly 29th March 2014
I think it should have a lot more information for example how many pomegranate seeds and also the last paragraph is quite bad and confusing, it needs a lot of work over all
Name: Hannah 30th March 2014
There is not any information about why the pomegranate made Persephone stay in the Underworld and I did not understand the last paragraph.
Name: Francesca 23rd April 2014
this story does not tell us why persephone ate the pomergranate but ok for the rest.
