The Myth Reading Group meets on ‘Zoom’ on Wednesday 24 November, 5:30-6:30 pm (UK time). The link to join will be posted in the comments for this post. All are welcome.
The Myth Reading Group is open to all who have an interest in studying myths. At each meeting, a welcoming group of scholars and enthusiasts read from the chosen text and discuss themes evoked by it. We do not pursue a single theoretical reading, but are free to consider diverse approaches. Regular participants have expertise in depth psychology, literary theory, and translation studies. These approaches may be starting points, but by no means do they set the limits of the discussion.
Our new theme is Magic and Myth.
This week’s text is an extract from Goethe’s Faust.
