American Mythology: Why Star
Wars Still Matters, Steven D. Greydanus suggests that
the adventures of Luke Skywalker and
Obi-Wan Kenobi have a place for Christians along side the
adventures of Hercules and Odysseus. Why does he believe this to
be the case.
In his review
“Move Over, Odysseus, here comes Luke Skywalker” Steve Persall,
Times Film Critic, calls Lucas “the first mass media
mythologist.” What does he mean by this, and why dos he say that
this causes some academics to question placing Lucas among the
elite creators of legends?
In the essay
entitled on Star Wars, why does Andrew Gordon call the series “a
myth for our time”?
