Robyn DeHart: The Enduring Appeal of the Legend
I mean who doesn’t love the Arthurian legends with Excalibur and King Arthur and his chivalrous knights? And then there’s Robin Hood, another fascinating tale and it’s so like mankind to cheer for the underdog. There is a reason we have so many movies about these subjects, people are always interested. And we can’t forget about all of the fabled treasures? Rumors and stories of hidden caves and chests and whatnot filled with gold and gems and other lovely sparkly things. It doesn’t matter if you’re talking about Solomon’s mines or the El Dorado, people love stories of treasure hunts.
So how about your, what are your favorite myths that you just never get enough of (whether in books or movies)?
Thanks so much for having me today.
