How to Read Literature Like a Professor 

Chapter 9 in How to Read Literature Like a Professor tells us that whether a story is fact or fiction, (myths) "we're chiefly concerned with how that story functions as material for literary creators..." Myths can be Shakespearean, biblical and folk/fairy tale and are all foundations for literature. We can recognize in the body of a story the "myth" and that makes for a richer more meaningful experience in literature.
