Personal Writing Project.

“How do poets, and artists of all kinds, use mythology as a way of prjecting their self into their work?”

A piece of personal invesigative poetry/prose:

why do I personally find it difficult to write directy about myself?

- does writing through a medium such as myth make this easier? Why? And what effect does this have on the “poetic persona”?

= DOES THE ACT OF WRITING PETRY THROUGH A MEDIUM SUCH AS MYTHOLOGY CAUSE THE ISOLATION OF THE EMOTIONAL SELF AT THE COST OF THE DEVEOPMENT OF THE POETIC PERSONA?

Texts of interest:

Ovid’s Metamorphosis
Ted Hughes’ Tales from Ovid
etc…

Possible points of reference between myself and mythology:

Viking Myths – Northern, earthy.
Tales of Medusa – conflicting personality etc.

Any thoughts?
