How to Read Literature Like A Professor - Foster
"What we mean in speaking of "myth" in general is story, the ability of a story to explain ourselves to ourselves in ways that physics, philosophy, mathematics, chemistry--all very highly useful and informative in their own right--can't." (pg. 65)

Foster caught me. When I read 'myth', my first thought was of something untrue. But myths, as in old integrated tales, really are important to us. Knowledge of them can help you make connections to tons of different works. Unfortunately, I really am not informed about all the myths out there, but I do know the most recent ones. Perhaps we should take Foster's words and do a little research to further enrich ourselves.
