Many of our new tales emerge from their roots in myths of old. Writers today seem to find our classics and legends inspiring. There are stories that bring old beliefs to our modern society, to learn from the ways of our ancestors. There are also stories where the older beliefs are urged to be changed.
Authors have used multiple methods of revisiting myths, including retelling them entirely from the point of view of a dormant character that in the original text did not have the liberty to voice their opinions.Most of them are also written from a feminist point of view challenging the gender stereotypes propagated in most of these myths.
Writers like Amelia Lanyer, Colleen Anderson, Nitoo Das etc. have written stories that provoke the general thought process of our existing faiths and assumptions.
In Amelia Lanyers poem, Eves Apology, she speaks about the Story of Creation from Eves prospect. In the teachings of the church, we were taught to look at Eve as the FALLEN ONE. But in Eves Apology we see what Eve could have been thinking and aramification of the entire plot. Some may say these justifications are futile and pointless, but nonetheless, we at least hear a voice that shouldnt have gone unheard.
Id like to think of Dan Brown and Alexandra Adornetto as writers who fall in this category as well. The Langdon series, by Dan Brown, revolves around Christian teachings, legends, ancient art work, which he efficiently challenges in a blatant fashion. In Ms Adornettos Halo Series, she gives an insight into the ever fascinating topic of angels. The various hierarchies of angels, a different viewpoint on the archangels, a quirky version of Lucifer, are some of the catches of this series.
The basic idea of these revisionist myths is to think beyond the ordinary, move out of our comfort zones and tip-toe into the realm of the extraordinary. Nothings ever right just because all the world says its right. Find your own beliefs and follow them with a passion.
