The Phoenix Legend

    This magical, mythical bird has long been a part of legends, dating A22 .................... to ancient civilizations. In today's culture, the phoenix's legend is still going A23 ...................., with a major city in the United States named after the resurrecting beast and popular books and movies, including the phenomenally successful 'Harry Potter' series encompassing the bird into characters and plots.

    Since the story has come A24 .................... to us through the oral tradition, there is no single version of it. It varies from teller to teller - each adding something of their own and changing tiny aspects of it. A25 ...................., the main facts of the legend of the Phoenix remain intact, even though the myth has been adulterated.

    According to the legend, the Phoenix is a supernatural creature that has an incredibly long A26 ...................., stretching to at least a thousand years. It cannot fall sick or get injured at any point in its lifetime. However, some believe that it does get affected by disease or drought, which leads it to prematurely enter the next phase of its life.

    Once that time is over, the bird builds its own funeral pyre. The traditional story goes that the phoenix ignites himself, burns to ash, and then rises again from the ashes to live another thousand years. This triumph over adversity has caused the bird to become the A27 .................... or symbol of many groups and organizations. Once the bird is born from ashes, the cycle begins anew.

    Another version of the story is that before the fire consumes the bird, it lays an egg, which hatches a new phoenix. This phoenix will live to be a thousand years old before having an A28 .................... in the same method. There is no way of ascertaining which version of the story is true, but all of them express the same theme: the triumph over adversity.
