What a legend!
Explore myths and legends! Many myths have persisted for thousands of years, and they continue to be "rebooted", modernised and interpreted, now as much as ever (Thor, anyone?). Myths are populated by courageous heroes, gods and goddesses, amazing creatures, wondrous worlds, adventures, comedy, and tragedy. Myths often depict gods, as powerful as they are, as fallible creatures like ourselves. In these stories, we see inspiration, and also lessons.
In this class, we'll read a selection of myths, examine why these myths retain their grasp on our imaginations to this day, and look at modern retellings.
