Myth and Place

Paper topic and require:

Myth and Place. Greek myths are often deeply connected with the geographical locations in which they transpire. (The Oedipus story, for example, is strongly linked with the mythological space of Thebes.)

Choose a myth or set of myths (or legends) and examine the role that place plays in those stories. Where do mentions of place occur? What features of place are emphasized? How can we best characterize the relationship between myth and place? n.b.:For primary source material, check The Perseus
