Stephen Fry- Mythos
I'm ashamed to say that I never knew much about Greek mythology until now. It never interested me, and I probably wouldn't have bought the book if Stephen Fry wasn't the author. But I have to say that I absolutely loved it. It's the first audiobook I've bought, and even though I love paper books, Fry's voice is sublime and I can't imagine having anythign but the audio version.
The whole subject is interesting and underrated- alot in
society is based on ( directly or indirectly ) on how society
grew away from ownership & belief in our collective myths.
Why did we need myths - why did we " out grow " them;
or do we still need a comfortable set of beliefs and just made new ones. I read Joeseph Cambell , he covers alot
of the benifits and pitfalls of what happened with mythology in the past.
Good post ,thanks
