What are mythotopes?

december 11, 2009

A mythotope is that environment in which a myth belongs. It is a place and a time, a part of the year or a type of landscape, maybe even a certain kind of weather necessary for the enactment of a particular myth. In a wider sense, fantasy literature could be regarded as a collection of mythotopes – tales where old myths find new homes. These new homes are among the subjects I will speculate in this blog.
