Beekes has suggested a Pre-Greek origin. This could be connected to the famous scene of Odysseus being bound to the mast of his ship, in Sirènes to resist their song.
The English word " siren ", referring to a noise-making device, derives from the name. Sirens were believed to look like a combination of women and birds in various different forms. In early Greek art, they were represented as birds with large women's heads, bird feathers and scaly feet. Later, they were represented as female figures with the legs of birds, with or without wings, playing a variety of musical instruments, especially harps and lyres.
The seventh-century Anglo-Latin catalogue Liber Monstrorum says that Sirens were women from their heads to their navels, and instead of legs they had fish tails.
By the Middle Ages, the figure of the Siren had transformed into the enduring mermaid figure. Originally, Sirens were shown to be male or female, but the male Siren disappeared from art around the fifth century BC. The first-century Roman historian Pliny the Elder discounted Sirens as a pure fable, "although Dinon, the father of Clearchus, a celebrated writer, asserts that they exist in Indiaand that they charm men by their song, and, having first lulled them to sleep, tear them to pieces.
Although a Sophocles fragment makes Phorcys their father,  when Sirens are named, they are usually as daughters of the river god AchelousSirènes with Terpsichore Melpomene Calliope  or Sterope. Roman writers linked them more closely to the sea, as daughters of Phorcys. Their number is variously reported as from two to eight. According to HyginusSirens were fated to live only until the mortals who heard their songs were able to pass by them. It is said that Heraqueen of the gods, persuaded the Sirens to enter a singing contest with the Muses.
The Muses won the competition and then plucked out all of the Sirens' feathers and made crowns out of them. One of the crew, however, the sharp-eared hero Butesheard the song and leapt into the sea, but he was caught up and carried safely away by the goddess Aphrodite. Odysseus was curious as to what the Sirens sang to him, and so, on the advice of Circehe had all of his sailors plug their ears with beeswax and tie him to the mast.
He ordered his men to leave Sirènes tied tightly to the mast, no matter how much he might beg. When he heard their beautiful song, he ordered the sailors to untie him but they bound him tighter. When they had passed out of earshot, Odysseus demonstrated with his frowns to be released.
Statues of Sirens in a funerary context are attested since the classical era, in mainland Greeceas well as Asia Minor and Magna Graecia. The so-called "Siren of Canosa"— Canosa di Puglia is a site in Apulia that was part of Magna Graecia —was said to accompany the dead among grave goods in a burial.
She appeared to have some psychopomp characteristics, guiding the dead on the afterlife journey. The cast terracotta figure bears traces of its original white pigment.
The woman bears the feet, wings and tail of a bird. The Sirens were called the Muses of the lower world. Classical scholar Walter Copland Perry — observed: "Their song, though irresistibly sweet, was no less sad than sweet, and lapped both body and soul in a fatal lethargy, the forerunner of death and corruption. The term " siren song " refers to an appeal that is hard to resist but that, if heeded, will lead to a bad conclusion.
Later writers have implied that the Sirens were cannibalsbased on Circe 's description of them "lolling there in their meadow, round them heaps of corpses rotting away, rags of skin shriveling on their bones. Once he hears to his heart's content, sails on, a wiser man. We know all the pains that the Greeks and Trojans once endured on the spreading plain of Troy when the gods willed it so— all that comes to pass on the fertile earth, we know it all!
The end of that song is death. It has been suggested that, with their feathers stolen, their divine nature kept them alive, but unable to provide food for their visitors, who starved to death by refusing to leave. By the fourth century, when pagan beliefs were overtaken by Christianitythe belief in literal sirens was discouraged. The early Christian euhemerist interpretation of mythologized human beings received a long-lasting boost from Isidore's Etymologiae :. They [the Greeks] imagine that "there were three Sirens, part virgins, part birds," with wings and claws.
They drew sailors, decoyed by song, to shipwreck, Sirènes. According to the truth, however, they were prostitutes who led travelers down to poverty and were said to impose shipwreck on them. They are said to have stayed in the waves because a wave created Venus. By the time of the Renaissancefemale court musicians known as courtesans filled the role of an unmarried companion, and musical performances by unmarried women could be seen as immoral.
Seen as a creature who could control a man's reason, female singers became associated with the mythological figure of the siren, who usually took a half-human, half-animal form somewhere on the cusp between nature and culture.
Sirens continued to be used as a symbol for the dangerous temptation embodied by women regularly throughout Christian Sirènes of the medieval era; however, in the 17th century, some Jesuit writers began to assert their actual existence, including Cornelius a Lapidewho said of woman, "her glance is that of the fabled basiliskher voice a siren's voice—with her voice she enchants, with her beauty she deprives of reason—voice and sight alike deal destruction and death.
Charles Burney expounded c. Hence it is probable, that in ancient times there may have been excellent singers, but of corrupt morals, on the coast of Sicily, who by seducing voyagers, gave rise to this fable. The etymology of Bochartwho deduces the name from a Phoenician term denoting a songstress, favors the explanation given of the fable by Damm. The ballad is also conserved in a Swedish version. A modern literary appropriation of the myth is to be seen in Clemens Brentano 's Lore Lay ballad, published in his novel Godwi oder Das steinerne Bild der Mutter In the folklore of some modern cultures, the concept of the siren has been assimilated to that of the mermaid.
Siren Lake in Antarctica is named after the mythological creature. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
