Mythic Realms

"The shared realm of mythic fantasy is a realm in which we learn that which is most important to the human experience. We learn it through finely crafted metaphors--translating truth and accuracy into fantastic possession, just as we learn it through retellings--translating mythic tales into contemporary expressions."
Evelyn M. Perry, Robin McKinley: Girl Reader, Woman Writer
