We have spent the last few weeks exploring the Greek myths through reading, presentations, and discussion. A focus of these activities was to identify and articulate various myth’s subjects, themes, and wisdom. While these myths, at first, may seem foreign or unrelated to our life and culture, their influence continues to be present today. Select a Greek myth or myths and in a clear and well-supported essay identify and explain the theme/s of the myth and manifestations of it/them in real life today.
