Apollo versus Dionysus. Reason versus emotion. I can't get out of my mind how Apollo, the god of reason (and poetry, for that matter) was ready to rape a naiad, Daphne, while Dionysus, the god of emotion, never came close to wanting to rape anyone. I tried to write about this, but without much luck or satisfaction. Maybe somebody else will at some point.
