Short description

Myth and Myth Theory.

Next, choose a myth or fable that is familiar to you. Briefly present a synopsis and an analysis of the myth using either Beattie’s and Malinowski’s functionalist analysis or Wolfe’s idea of a “master symbol.” Examples of myths/fables might include: 1 Any Greek or Hindu myth 2 Cinderella 3 Johnny Appleseed 4 The general plot of any of the Star Wars films 5 The general plot of the Wizard of Oz film 6 Snow White 7 The Three Bears 8 Little Red Riding Hood The paper must be two to three pages in length (excluding the title and reference pages) and formatted according to APA style. Cite your resources in text and on the reference page.
