What is a myth?
We live in society and in nature,myths that came to us from ancient times. The word "Myth" is widely heard. But the concept of this term is not clear to anyone and is understandable. Today, I will try to give you this knowledge. Let's look at what a myth is.
First, I would like to clarify that the term "myth"came down to us from the ancient Greek language. This is a kind of legend that tells us about how the world is represented, people. In the concept of "myth" laid deep philosophical system. "Myth" is designed to help us find answers to such questions as: where did everything originate, where is the place of man in the world, who are such gods and who are such heroes. In the period of primitive culture, the myth represented a whole science, which spoke about how the world is described and perceived. Myths did not just consider the place of man in the world, but also were the main source of historical information. Subsequently, some forms of myths were seized and used in art, literature, science and religion, which was the impetus for the development and acquisition of new knowledge. This is especially noticeable in the work of poets. Most fully reflect the relationship of poets and myths in ancient literature, which is represented by such works as Odyssey, Illyada and many others.
