Mythology-need help

Mon, 17 Apr 1995 17:28:30 -0500

I have suddenly had it thrust upon me to teach a course in mythology next
Fall. Our book orders were (of course) due a few days ago. I will be taking
over the course for a semester for a classics professor whose readings have
mainly been classical myths. However, I do not intend to teach the course in
that fashion.

Please help me with suggestions of anthologys of world myths. I am more
familiar with the theoretical literature. I intend to use Dundes' _Sacred
Narrative_, if after re-examining it, it turns out to be appropriate for
college Sophomores. I would also appreciate any suggestions of this kind of
material which are aimed at the appropriate level.

Thanks for your help.
