Overview

In this assignment, you will write a critical analysis of a film or book or television series in which you identify the mythic symbolism, the use of myth, the imitation or adaptation of myth, specific reference to myths that we have read.

When the original myths were told to a rapt audience, their imaginations brought the gods, the creatures, the events to life.  We have a similar experience when we see the symbols that arise out of the myths come to life when we see them played out before our eyes on television, in the theater or on film.  We enjoy these stories just as our distant ancestors enjoyed them.  Although our ancestors probably put far more belief in the reality of the stories than we do, we do not escape the impact of the underlying truths of the myths even though we proclaim ourselves “too educated” or “too enlightened.”

Instructions

In this assignment, you will write a critical analysis of a film or book or television series in which you identify the mythic symbolism, the use of myth, the imitation or adaptation of myth, specific reference to myths that we have read.  The emphasis in this assignment is on analysis.  Do not simply retell the story line; rather show not only the mythic elements that are present in the film/book that you selected, but also how those elements bring the mythic values from the original myth into the film/book. 
It is recommended that you stay in the area of concentration that you chose for your annotated bibliography, but you are not required to do so.

The link below provides detailed Instructions and Guide for Writing the Critical Analysis, and suggestions for topics. This link provides a step by step guide for writing, to include instructions on what must be included in your analysis.
