About Myth in Memory


Myth in Memory considers and explores mythology in the experience of the everyman — storytelling, archetypes appearing in the everyday, oral histories, family cultures, reinterpretations and modernizations of ancient myth, ritual, and the truths that persist through fictions. Joseph Campbell, in “The Power of Myth,” affirmed the mystical, cosmological, sociological, and pedagogical functions of myth asserting that its role is to illuminate “how to live a human lifetime under any circumstances.”
