Archives For reading myths

Been trudging along in Master and Commander for a while and decided to take small break to learn all these nautical terms. Hopefully I can then comprehend what exactly is going on but otherwise an excellent read. 

Other books I am reading simultaneously: 

An Experiment in Criticism – C.S. Lewis

Mere Christianity – C.S. Lewis

Fellowship of the Ring – J.R.R. Tolkien

Tao Te Ching – Lao Tzu 

A History of Korea – Michael Seth

I would like to finish half of them plus Soccernomics by November. 

The experience is not only grave but awe-inspiring. We feel it to be numinous. It is as if something of great moment had been communicated to us. The recurrent efforts of the mind to grasp- we mean, chiefly, to conceptualise- this something, are seen in the persistent tendency of humanity to provide myths with allegorical explanations. And after all allegories have been tried, the myth itself continues to feel more important than they.
