In Greek mythology, Sisyphus is the King of Corinth who thought himself more clever than the gods and so was punished to push an enormous boulder up a hill only to see it roll back down. He was condemned to repeat this process for all eternity.
The image of Sisyphus toiling serves a very apt, though sad, metaphor for the life of man. Life is endless work: we work to live, to eat, to stay alive. we do so till the day we die.
But this is me imagining Sisyphus singing, dreaming, resting, in spite of his doomed fate. Sisyphus rebelling, ranting. Sisyphus believing there’s more to life than his pointless task.
