In a time seemingly more devoted to practical realities with each passing year, why would we want to study myths? What can the fables of ancient civilizations long since gone to dust tell us about the world we must deal with today, where each morning plunges many of us anew into a frenzied pace of professional tasks, madcap scheduling, and day-to-day concerns on a scale those ancients never could have imagined, leaving us precious little time to ponder the deeper questions about life itself and our place in the world? The answer is that the ancients did imagine such things—or at least their world’s version of them—along with the same deep questions we ourselves yearn to solve. And we are connected to them in more ways than we ourselves might ever imagine.
