Homework Help: English (Classical Myths)

Posted by Jake on Tuesday, November 27, 2007 at 10:26pm.

I have a myth project assigned. I got lucky (or so I thought) and had the myth of Polyphemus. Wikipedia has it if anyone doesnt know it.

There are three things that I need for my project:
1) The moral of the story.
2) How the story explains natural phenomenon.
3) How the myth shows social order.

I was thinking that the myth shows social order by showing that Polyphemus is a sheep herder, and is not very sophisticated. Also, Odyssious felt that it was okay to show up in someones house and eat their food while they were gone. (that last thing might be relationships?)
But, I need the other two things... I didn't know that this could be so hard...

Please help! Thanks
