Write a 650-word paper for these questions:

  • Many pop culture, books, movies, and music are heavily influenced by mythology, believe it or not. Just look at many of the popular films that have come out – Lord of the Rings, Percy Jackson, 300, and Clash of the Titans are just a couple I can think of off the top of my head. Literature is even more heavily influenced by myth. For myself, I have always been a huge sci-fi/fantasy fan, and have been especially fond of Tolkien. As a child, I loved it for the story itself, but as I grew up, I began to see the symbolism and mythology that influenced the works. Class: What are some of your favorite books, movies, or musicians? Can you think of how they might be influenced by mythology?
  • Think of a modern movie or novel myth, such as The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars or The Hunger Games. What lessons might the story teach the audience?
  • What role do contemporary myths play in your everyday life, such as at home with your family, at work with your colleagues, and in the media? Is that role an important one? Explain why or why not.
