#25 Wyrd (pronounced Weird). This would be an awesome thing to include in any lesson whether it be Beowulf or Macbeth ( Scenes (28 total) / Characters (40 total) ). I remember learning about the Wyrd sisters in Macbeth and how they stood for fate. It changes the entire meaning of play when you look at them from that perspective rather than as a witch. ---- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6gP3Lim7_k
KALI is the Hindu mother goddess, symbol of dissolution and destruction. She destroys ignorance, maintains the world order, and blesses and frees those who strive for the knowledge of God. In the Vedas the name is associated with Agni, the god of fire, who had seven flickering tongues of flame, of which Kali was the black, horrible tongue. This meaning of the word has meanwhile been replaced by the goddess Kali, the grim consort of Shiva.
SELKIE [noun] (also known as silkies or selchies) mythological creatures found in Faroese, Icelandic, Irish, and Scottish folklore. The word derives from earlier Scots selich, (from Old English seolh meaning seal). Selkies are said to live as seals in the sea but shed their skin to become human on land. The legend apparently originated on the Orkney and Shetland Islands and is very similar to those of swan maidens.
