Persephone was the daughter of Zeus, the king of all gods, and Demeter, the goddess of agriculture. Persephone was gathering flowers in the Vale of Nysa when she was seized by the god Hades and taken to the underworld. Upon learning of the abduction, the inconsolable Demeter became unconcerned with the harvest or the fruitfulness of the earth, so that widespread famine ensued. Zeus then intervened, commanding Hades to release Persephone to her mother. However, Persephone had eaten a single pomegranate seed in the underworld and so she could not be completely freed. Because of this, Persephone had to remain one-third of the year with Hades and spent the other two-thirds with her mother. The story that Persephone spent four months of each year in the underworld was no doubt meant to account for the barren appearance of Greek fields after harvest, before their revival in the autumn rains, when they are plowed and sown.
