Volcano Symbol

Anne Carson's style of writing is interesting and engaging. The story of Geryon and the monster  within him was original. The style was difficult for me to get into due to the tradition i have with conventional styles. I thought the sexuality of Geryon and his relationship with Herakles was an interesting dynamic.  I am wondering if his sexuality relates to the volcano symbolism in the story. I know it sounds naive of me but I wondering what the symbolic meaning of the volcano?

I think the volcano symbolizes that Geryon can fly into it and make it out because of his wings. So, in a sense, he is a survivor? perhaps in real life too. Check out the "Eyewitnesses" chapter when Ancash tells Geryon about the Yazcol Yazcamac, or the "Ones Who Went and Saw and Came Back." These people could visit the inside of a volcano and tell people about their experiences there.
