Why do people make such a big deal about Mythologies ?
Maybe it’s because they are the cornerstone of civilization? I mean, the greatest civilizations in human history incidentally had the most memorable mythologies that still inspire today. From Gilgamesh to the Greeks or China to the Mayans, all of these fascinating cultures had equally fascinating and complex mythologies. They provided a foundation upon which their art, language, architecture, clothing and philosophy were based. In a way, our mythologies define us. They’re an artistic representation of what we hold dear.
But how does that translate into the modern world ? The great Professor Tolkien realized his beloved English people had no mythology – so he made one. Poof! Just like that, Middle Earth and the Silmarillion were born. Ever since, his work has been the benchmark for high fantasy in the western World. Americans have a peculiar relationship with mythology. Being a fairly young culture, they didn’t have much to pull on. So what did they do? They created Superheroes! First conceived as childish tools of propaganda and humor, American Superheroes quickly grew to represent everything Americans admire and see in themselves. As their writing and depiction evolved, they became the equivalent of the Greek Titans or Mesopotamian Heroes. These stories constitute American Mythology.keep reading
