A CRITICAL EXPLORATION OF THE THEME OF DEATH IN CLASSICAL MYTHOLOGY By Sergio Zenere
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,... More > Ganymede and Hippolytus. Although improbable at first sight, there are a number of motifs accompanying one or all the versions of these myths.

In the beginning, the present writer shall argue how such narratives are quintessential narratives sinking into the mist of time.< Less

The U.S mainstream media is a major tool in the hands of the power elite; it constructs images of reality that are subsequently widely believed in by the masses, images whose definitions ensure that... More > inequality will continue without revolt or redress. 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
