The Path to Hades (And Other Collected Tales)
The river Pyriphlegethon, which is a stream of lava rolling in its torrent clashing rocks, also builds a large lake boiling with water and mud. Pyriphlegethon comes to the edge of the Acherusian lake, but does not mingle with its water and neither does the Styx, which coming close to the Acherusian Lake, passes round in a circle and falls back into Tartarus under the name of Cocytus.

Tartarus is the lowest abyss beneath the earth where all waters originate; all rivers flow into the chasm of Tartarus and flow out of it again. Tartarus is, they say, a gloomy place as far distant from earth as earth is from the sky. For, it is said, a brazen anvil falling down from heaven nine nights and days would reach the earth upon the tenth: Still others say that Tartarus yawns deep under the shades, extending down twice as far as the view upward to Heaven. Tartarus and the Underworld are the realm of Erebus, which is pure Darkness.
Tartarus, Place of Punishment Tartarus is also a place of punishment. Round it runs a fence of bronze, and night spreads in triple line all about it. Some say that the gates are of iron and the threshold of bronze, and others that there is a threefold wall around it. Around this triple wall flows Pyriphlegethon with its flames and its clashing rocks. The entrance, in which there is an enormous portal has pillars of solid adamant that not even the gods could break.

Tartarus, the Being Tartarus is, at the same time, a being capable of intercourse. Tartarus is the father of such monsters as Echidna and Typhon for the attack of Typhon against heaven see Zeus. As men and women die, Hermes leads their souls to the Underworld, past the streams of Oceanus , past the White Rock Leucas , past the Gates of the Sun and the Land of Dreams, until they reach the Asphodel Fields, where the spirits dwell living the flavourless existence of a shadow or phantom.
This is not a place of punishment, but there is no pleasure and the mind is confused and oblivious with the exception of Tiresias. Close to the doors, many other beasts dwell: In the midst of all this, an Elm can be seen, and False Dreams cling under every leaf. Charon The dead seem to know the location of Hades less than the living, as several entrances to Hades were known from all times one of them is in Taenarum, another in Cumae; Odysseus arrived to Hades navigating the stream of Oceanus.

The souls descending to Hades carry a coin under the tongue in order to pay Charon, the ferryman who ferries them across the river. Charon may make exceptions or allowances for those visitors carrying a certain Golden Bough. Otherwise, this Charon is appallingly filthy, with eyes like jets of fire, a bush of unkempt beard upon his chin, and a dirty cloak hanging from his shoulders.
However, although Charon embarks now one group now another, some souls he keeps at distance.
Travels to the Beyond
These are the unburied: Others say that this hound has three heads of dogs, the tail of a dragon, and on his back the heads of all sorts of snakes. On another occasion, someone eluded his guarding instinct, throwing him a cake of honey and wheat infused with sedative drugs. Then several categories of souls appear in this neutral zone or Limbo, which could be the same as the Asphodel Fields. Children are by themselves, and so are those who have been condemned to death on a false charge, and those who killed themselves.
Next comes the Vale of Mourning where those who were consumed by unhappy love dwell, and in the farthest fields, before the dividing road, are those who were famous in war. The Dividing Road and the Judges of the Dead Some say that the soul receives judgement in the meadow the Plain of Judgement at the dividing of the road, whence are the two ways leading, one to the Isles of the Blest or Elysium , and the other to Tartarus.
However, those who suffer a punishment in the Underworld have been condemned by the gods.

Her giant form, from the chest to the parting-point of the thighs, was covered with sea-monster's scales. The claws of her hands were curved like a crook-talon sickle and over her shoulders a scorpion coiled upon itself.
Campe is no longer in the Underworld because she was destroyed by Zeus.

A jewel of a Book written in free style, at times poetic, prose verse in crafted English. It is not so much as what the Author knows - it is more what he wants to know. He is searching, groping, grasping at Truths here and there, and forging them into his own, still evolving ideology. An ideology of hope, a life affirming Nietzschean message throughout.
