    Myths are sacred stories. They tell of the origin of the wold and humankind, the existence and activities of gods and spirits, the creation of order in the universe. Myths relate to the origins of human traditions and articulate a society's values and norms. They tell how to behave and distinguish good from evil. Archetypal literary theory focuses on recurring archetypes, patterns, symbls and myths in literatuhre.

Myths are imaginative, explanatory stories that address the big issues such as the origin and purpose of the group, the source of moral authority and the fate of individuals when they die. Myth, a symbolic narrative, usually of unknown origin and at least partly traditional, that ostensibly relates actual events and that is especially associated with religious is distinguished from symbolic behaviour (cult, ritual) and symbolic places or objects (temples, icons). Myths are specific accounts of gods or superhuman beings involved in extraordinary events or circumstances.
