Study of mythology: In the context of structuralists theoretical framework
Abstract
The present paper searches some of the inmost niches that expose structuralism in the study of mythology of all types. To understand well the formation of mythology we adopt the theory of structuralism. What is mythology, a sequence of events that develop to become a narrative? If we relate these sequences of incidents into one chain, myth becomes a story, an oral traditional story. But does it have any differences from the ordinary stories told by nannies? The stories have main characters, heroes and heroines, they are special because special charms are added to their personalities. The mythical characters are also made charming to look like hero and heroine, they are having super human qualities too, and they chose to roam about in our surroundings. Hence, these myths are interwoven within the social structures. This aspect of the mythology is under study in this paper but within the theoretical framework of structuralist approach towards these narratives. We don’t indulge into the religious connotations of mythology, but just when they interact with the commonalty of lives, creating similarities of structure; perceiving them functioning just the languages do in transferring messages.
