eBook (PDF): $0.00
The present writer wishes to offer a succinct overview of the main themes linking together the narratives discussed in this writing. Such mythological narratives are those of Adonis, Callisto,...

A mythology, garbed in master symbols that contours perceptions of available life-chances regardless of objective fact, it determines relationships between races, ethnicities and nationalities; it makes people chase dreams that most can never attain. So powerful are its effects (as are often revealed by polls after major events about which most people’s only source of information is this media or people exposed to the media), that realities of people’s own lives, the objective facts that confront them on a daily basis, become subordinate to its contrived images< Less
