Myth and Reality [PDF]

by Mircea Eliade
An informative guide to the modern mythologies! This classic study, translated from the original French, deals primarily with societies around the world in which myth is—or was until very recently— "living," in the sense that it supplies models for human behavior and, by that very fact, gives meaning and value to life. The author believes that understanding the structure and function of myths in these traditional societies serves to clarify a stage in the history of human thought: "myths reveal that the World, man, and life have a supernatural origin and history, and that this history is significant, precious, and exemplary."
