What did Daedalus give to Theseus so he could find his way out of the maze?
On his arrival in Crete, Ariadne, King Minos’ daughter, fell in love with Theseus and, on the advice of Daedalus, gave him a ball of thread (a clew), so he could find his way out of the Labyrinth.
Why was Minos enraged with Daedalus?
Minos called on Daedalus to build the famous Labyrinth in order to imprison the dreaded Minotaur. When Minos found out what Daedalus had done he was so enraged that he imprisoned Daedalus & Icarus in the Labyrinth themselves.
Why did King Minos Lock Daedalus and Icarus away in the Labyrinth?
Minos, the king of the island of Crete, asked Daedalus, an architect, to build him a complicated labyrinth to lock up his prisoners. Needless to say, King Minos was angry, and he shut Daedalus and his son Icarus in the Labyrinth as punishment. Pasiphae, Minos’ wife, however, released them.
What is Daedalus thoughts and what it tells about him?
What it tells about him: Daedalus has brilliant mind, he is creative and we can also say that he is a risk taker. Daedalus’ thoughts: He thinks about their way out as well as a safe place for them to land.
Why couldn’t Daedalus leave the island of Crete How did he plan to escape?
Unable to sail away, because Minos controlled the ships, Daedalus fashioned wings of wax and feathers for himself and for Icarus and escaped to Sicily using the wings. Icarus, however, flew too near the Sun, his wings melted, and he fell into the sea and drowned.
Do you think it was good idea of Daedalus to escape by making wings to fly after what happened to Icarus?
Icarus ignores Daedalus’s instructions not to fly too close to the sun, causing the wax in his wings to melt. He tumbles out of the sky, falls into the sea, and drowns. The myth would later be coined in the idiom, “don’t fly too close to the sun”….Sister projects.

Why did Minos imprison Daedalus in the Labyrinth in the story Daedalus and Icarus?
Minos imprisoned Daedalus in the Labyrinth because Daedalus helped King Minos’ wife mate with a bull. Poseidon sent Minos a magnificent white bull that came charging up out of the sea. Minos was so impressed with this bull that he did not want to give it up, so instead he sacrificed an ordinary bull in its place.
