Welcome to the class blog of Ben Villarreal's Freshman English II course, The Rhetoric of Pop Culture! Here you'll find the thoughts, ideas, and burgeoning written work from our university English class about pop culture.
Linda Seger had mentioned that "a myth is a story that is "more than true"". The idea of myths being more than true can be very problematic. When watching movies such as Star Wars we tend to believe in this rather true seeming myth causing us to create the immersion. It navigates us to believe that cinema is potentially possible with the strong belief in the myth. Myths should not have to be proven as true or even conceived as possibly true. It defeats the purpose of myths. Myths should be left to the imagination to believe rather than hollywood to create for us.
