Mythology offers a set of cultural codes that have played an essential role in the construction of culture, social life, and identity for the entirety of human history. The transfer of mythological elements to humanity has been achieved through both oral and written narratives in literature. This volume compares the themes of mythological elements used in contemporary narratives with the motifs of classical narratives, and investigates the functions of those elements pursuant to semiotics and narratology.
