Power of Myth and Symbol

Choose three stories from three different cultures for compare and contrast. Only one of those cultures may be modern Euro-American. You will, therefore, need to
explore other culture′s mythos: Native American, Australian Aborigine, African, Asian, etc. You can also travel far back in time to explore the mythic narratives of
the ancient world. One way or another, get as far out as you can into the deep ocean of myth and legend! You can find your stories from various sources, your own
personal library, a public library, or reputable online web sources: Wikipedia, blog entries, or popular websites are not considered authoritative. Your goal is to get
as close to the origin source of your mythic material as possible. The stories should be concise, such as fairytales, legends, folk tales, ethnographic records, or
religious texts, but they might be fragments of larger narratives as well. In this essay you will clearly analyze the plots, characters, and/or settings of these
stories using the universal perspective, the cultural perspective, and the pedagogical/psychological perspective. You will also do independent research where you
explore what scholars, mythologists, anthropologists, artists, psychologists, or other commentators have said about your topic and cite them in your essay, using MLA
style. Here is the skeleton key to the essay, the three modes of analysis which, if effectively used, will guarantee a successful outcome to your discussion. These
three modes, the cultural perspective, the universal perspective, and the pedagogical/psychological perspective, allow scholars to focus their analysis and
interpretation in such a way as to unpack the meaning and function of myths across cultures worldwide. In comparing/contrasting your three mythic tales, you want to be
certain to integrate all three perspectives into your discussion.
