Mensch, Heros, Gott: Weltentwürfe und Lebensmodelle im Mythos der Vormoderne
Anja Bettenworth, Christine Schmitz
David Brown Book Company, 2009 - Literary Criticism - 183 pages
The constructive and critical-reflexive potential of myth in its varied literary and everyday contexts is the focus of this volume. Taking a wide-ranging, interdisciplinary approach, the contributions study universal concepts and life models in pre-modern myths from a variety of angles. They focus on humans, heroes and gods as the protagonists of myths, mythopoietics, and the constant actualization, instrumentalization, transformation and presentation of mythical themes in vase painting, architecture and literature. German text.
