This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Mytholofy 14, Nostalgia Reader marked it as textbooks Shelves: This book is awesome. One of my favorite classes so far, and probably my most favorite textbook by far.
This is so good that I am definitely going to be reading many of the chapters over the summer to expand my knowledge even more plus, we read the This book is awesome. It does help if you already enjoy mythology and know some general tropes across a few cultures, and you definitely need to enjoy literature, as that’s pretty much what this class was despite the “humanities” prefix it was given.
But if you like those things already, this book should be awesome and hopefully your class will be awesome too! I would also highly recommend this even to the non-student who wants to explore myths more in depth.
It’s a good jumping off point for delving into various theories of myth. Feb 13, Leif rated it really liked it. I read this to teach it. Nov 18, Jack rated it liked it. This textbook is highly intriguing and would be extremely useful in a myth class.
