Great Themes--World Myths

     Great Themes--World Myths not only manifests how various cultures react to uncertainties, but also suggests their astonishing similarities. For instance, the theme of the devastating floods which threatened humanity appeared in almost every single culture. In terms of faith, people tend to share similar concepts too, with many cultures believing that spirits without appropriate tombs and funerals end up as wandering ghosts, and people who barge into or eat the food of the nether world do not have the access back to their original world. This book offers its readers numerous intriguing myths showing these similarities. With sharp intercultural features, it is one book in the Myths and Humanity series.
