When Greek myths deal with heavy topics such as rape, incest, murder, and more, why should we share these stories? The lasting impact, the imagination present, the moral topics, and more that are addressed within each story. Additionally, the amount of Greek things we see around us, is innumerable.

aside from their use as a means of strengthening the imagination. The myths embody ethical truths. If by means of a story well told. A child can grasp the simple truth contained in it. He is making progress in the right direction. He is getting a foundation for the future study of literature and gaining an appreciation for the beautiful in art. All modern tendencies are to make Children too realistic and to stifle rather than to cultivate the fine imagination necessary to the creation or enjoyment of art and literature by presenting these myths because of their beauty and simplicity. We are giving him good material for the growth of a healthful imagination. And I love the thoughts of Charles Kingsley contained in a letter written to Children in the introduction of his book, The Heroes, My Dear Children! Some of you have heard already of the old Greeks and all of you as you grow up, we'll hear more and more of them. You will hardly find a well written book which has not in it. Greek names and words and proverbs. You cannot walk through a great town without passing greek buildings, you cannot go into a well furnished room without seeing greek statues and ornaments. Even greek patterns of furniture and paper so strangely have these old Greeks left their marks behind them upon this modern world in which we live now. I love these old Greeks heartily, and I should be very ungrateful to them if I did not. Considering all that they've taught me, and they seemed to me like brothers, though they have all been dead and gone many 100 years ago, so.
