An in-time vision of literary works in their widespread spectrum is what always leads to the enrichment of literature and is also what helps transform it from a static state to a dynamic one. In the meantime, since the myths evolve and proceed with the passage of time and are always present in the course of history, they cannot be held an exception to this fact. The myths, among the different topics addressed in comparative literature, which, in the most widespread meaning constitute an approach towards the universe, and are presented through different literary vehicles including allegories, anecdotes and narratives, should be not interpreted as ancient, fictional stories but studied with regard to the human being’s existential struggles throughout history.
