The Nuttall Encyclopedia

  1. Sirens

    in the Greek mythology a class of nymphs who were fabled to lure the passing sailor to his ruin by the fascination of their music; Ulysses, when he passed the beach where they were sitting, had his ears stuffed with wax and himself lashed to the mast till he was at a safe distance from the influence of their charm. Orpheus, however, as he passed them in the Argonautic expedition so surpassed their music by his melodious notes, that in very shame they flung themselves into the sea and were changed into boulders.

Examples of sirens in a Sentence

  1. Batman:

    Gotham has fallen silent. The night is no longer broken by the sounds of crime. Children are no longer waken by the sudden crack of a gunshot. There are no more cries in the darkness. No tires screech as wailing sirens chase desperate men and women through narrow streets. In a way it is a Gotham I've always dreamed of. But this is no dream. This is a perversion. This is a nightmare. It is the silence of fear. A silence only broken by the sound of marching feet. A sound that echoes around the world. Marching feet. The rhyme of dictators. Our world is ruled by iron fist of the man of steel.
