Twisting in anguish, Arachne fell to the ground as additional legs grew from her body, screaming as she transformed into the first spider. It was an act of anger and pity, a lesson and a curse, for spiders are the greatest of weavers, and Arachne, in particular, was to weave for all time, but none could doubt the consequences for Arachne's pride.

      The expert crafts goddess Athena is favorably impressed with Arachne's weaving of divine debaucheries: This the bright Goddess passionately mov'd, With envy saw, yet inwardly approv'd. The scene of heav'nly guilt with haste she tore, Nor longer the affront with patience bore; A boxen shuttle in her hand she took, And more than once Arachne's.   Arachne was a peasant as well as a wonderful spinner and weaver of wool. Rising Action 1 Arachne challenged Minerva to a weaving contest because she was so talented. Rising Action 2 Minerva disguised herself as an old woman to see Arachne's talent. Rising Action 3.
