Throughout time, myths have been created and maintained for varying reasons. Some myths may be created primarily for social or political purposes, such as The Aeneid and Children of the Sun. Some myths are created to explain man’s actions and responsibilities during natural events, as in Demeter and Persephone. Still others explore the strengths or weaknesses of the human spirit, such as Esfandyar and Caught by a Hair-String.
In this project, you will explore the perspectives that myths bring to human life, and how human perspectives affect the way we see myths. Using one of two approaches – a single myth or a single theoretical viewpoint – you will explore the facets of myth making and myth perpetuation that we discovered in this course.
