Greek

Through much rambling and failed attempts at humor, Foster does point out something that seemed to have fallen to the back of my mind. Myths to me were always heroic tales about old adventurers, but always seemed to have a moral. I found it strange how these could have this kind of effect on me, because they had nothing to do with me. It's only logical that people would then find a way to relate this to life as it exists now. One example of this is given on page 72, and it reads "Indiana Jones may look like pure Hollywood, but the intrepid searcher after fabulous treasure goes back to Apollonius and The Argonautica, the story of Jason and the Argonauts." It's interesting to think that so much in today's society still comes from a time that is so far gone.

Then, really, that time is not so far gone after all, is it?
