- The making of a myth or myths.‘For, as noted above, Tasso’s is the first vernacular poem to mold Musaeus in the Ovidian heroic manner: apostrophe, ethopoeia and digressive mythopoeia abound.’
Intention statement, mythopeoia, and Personal Myth
As may be the case for many who start out blogging, I’m looking at this as a big experiment, a hobby, and a way to reach an audience with my ideas and art – to share my perspective with the world.
Coming from a relatively short-lived career as a high school art instructor (slightly under 10 years), I decided to pursue a MA/PhD in Mythological Studies with Emphasis in Depth Psychology. I’m almost 3 quarters in, and I intend for this blog to document parts of my educational experience, showcase my visual art, share random thoughts and ideas and network.
The study of Myth is great and vast, and I am but a grain of sand. In crafting and curating this blog, I intend to engage in the act of personal meaning-making, or as I see it, becoming a more active participant in my Personal Myth.
*I am curious to know if and how people will respond to my reflections and posts. Please like, comment, and share feedback as you see fit! I love to engage in conversation and would love for this blog to serve as en extension of that. Share your thoughts! I can be reached via email at gTronn@thewinedarkseawithinme.com as well. Much love.
