Week Two: World Mythology

This week, we’ve discussed world mythology and listened to our classmates talk about different deities around the world.  Think about the god/goddess you researched.  How do we see them come up in literature?  What about in modern culture?  Why do you think there are so many references to ancient mythology in practically everything?  REMEMBER TO PAY ATTENTION TO PUNCTUATION AND CAPITALIZATION!  When you are done blogging your answer, take a moment to email me your presentation so I can upload it to the website.  My email is waddellk@wilkes.k12.nc.us.

If you need a reminder about what is required on those presentations, you can see that here:

    In literature we see them in books. In modern culture we seen them in movies. I think there are so many references to ancient mythology in practically everything becuase people want to keep the rememberance of them alive and make people be interested in the gods/goddess.

    The Goddess i researched (Venus) really only comes up in History books, but she comes up in like advertisments like venus razors and venus swimwear, and i think that they reference to everything because they kinda made everything.

    In modern culture we see them in movies, or even television shows! In literature we see them in books, they may be some of your favorites or you may hate them. There are so many references of mythology everywhere. Keeping in our lives and learning about them is very important because they are apart of history and they have contributed the way some of us live.

    We see them come up in fictional stories, or movies, such as Avengers, and Thor. In modern culture they pop up in movies and books like Marvel. Because it is so interesting.

    We see “Shiva” in some types of literature, for example:
    Movies, Books, and books about the religion of Hinduisim.
    In the modern culture, you dont see “Shiva” as much as the other Goddesses because they dont make movies about his story or events that happened during his life time.
    I think that ancient mythology is almost everywhere because they are most interesting in some point.
