How does The Princess and the Warrior exemplify that human impulse to write creation narratives?


“The Princess and the Warrior” Duncan

The academic definition of “mythology” refers very specifically to narratives of creation, such as the narrative in The Princess and the Warrior. In this narrative, you have read a narrative of the creation of the Iztacchuatl and Popocatpetl volcanoes in Mexico. Does this narrative regarding the creation of natural elements (the volcanoes) remind you of any other creation myths you may have encountered? How so? Be specific. If this book does not remind you of other creation myths you have encountered, why do you think creation myths appear in all cultures? How does The Princess and the Warrior exemplify that human impulse to write creation narratives?
