Myths in A Christmas Carol

Hey Class!

As we discussed in class today, be sure to read Linda Seger's "Creating the Myth" in Reading Pop Culture. For your blog, summarize the reading and answer Question 4 in reference to A Christmas Carol.

Keep in mind that in the event classes are cancelled, I still expect your posts. Please, also remember to read Stave V of A Christmas Carol for Thursday. However, if classes are cancelled tomorrow, we'll discuss a new due date for your essays.

Update: Obviously, class was not cancelled. For those who missed class, here are my incredible board drawings explaining how Moses, Superman, and Hercules are archetypal heroes:

Questions? Quibbles? Controversies?
