Greek Mythology comprises a group of traditional stories that discuss a number of universal themes such as creation, death, gods, heroes, the Other, family feuds, local history, and — not to forget — sex and cannibalism. In this course we will study the development of these tales in Greek literature and art. We will look at the myths themselves but also consider the context in which they have come down to us. We should realize that while we see Greek myths largely as a form of entertainment (Disney's Hercules for example), in antiquity myths also offered the Greeks valid explanations of the universe, mankind and society. Our focus will be on the interplay between myths and ancient society in both its contemporary and modern interpretations.
