Mythic Glossary

Myth: A Handbook cover artThe subject of myth uses a vocabulary of words with resonant meanings. We don't mean for the Mythic Glossary to be a page of dry definitions, but more a springboard. Want to jump with a word and see how high it flies and in what direction? Each month, we mean to add to our glossary of mythic concepts and grow a very interesting dictionary.

To start the ball rolling, we're grateful to Dr. William Doty and the folks at Greenwood Press for allowing use of the glossary from his book, Myth: A Handbook (all such entres so designated.) This is a work in progress, so the number of links will grow.

pleading for admitance into the dictionary..."
