What do you know about classical mythology? You know it’s important. Everyone knows it’s important. But why? How can stories created more than 2,000 years ago possibly influence your life? Just wait, you’ll see.
Perhaps you think your only encounter with classical mythology so far was that stressful six-week crash course in high school followed by the traumatic final exam that held the power to make or break your GPA. But this isn’t true. You have had a direct connection with mythology your entire life, regardless of whether or not you studied it in school. For instance, did you know that many names for plants and animals were taken directly from Greek and Roman mythology? These words we use every day help create that invisible link.
Consider classical mythology to be one huge book with hundreds of chapters nestled between its covers. Each chapter can stand alone as its own intriguing story or be combined with others to create one of the most aweinspiring, fantastic tales ever told.
