2.Greek Gods and Heroes

Paper, Order, or Assignment Requirements

Myth has two main functions, the poet and scholar Robert Graves wrote in 1955. The first is to answer the sort of awkward questions that children ask, such as Who made the world? How will it end? Who was the first man? Where do souls go after death?The second function of myth is to justify an existing social system and account for traditional rites and customs. (History.com)
Greek mythology gives us a door to understanding how the Ancient Greeks saw themselves and the world around them. Read Robert Graves collection Greek Gods and Heroes. Give three examples of how the Ancient Greeks used mythology to understand and/or give meaning to their world. In your opinion, were the myths successful in teaching moral lessons and explaining the world they lived in?
