The Most Popular Arthurian Legend Research Paper TopicsIf you are a student of Asian Mythology, reading a good Arthurian Legend Research Paper is an essential part of your education. In this article I will talk about some of the most popular research papers in this genre.
There are two types of Arthurian Legend research papers. Some use some kind of Classical Mythology approach while others use a more hybrid approach. In this article I want to concentrate on some of the more popular hybrid approaches.
The most popular hybrid approach involves using some elements from Classical Mythology (Pandora, for example) combined with some other mythological source material. Usually the Mythological source material is not derived from one of the Classical Greek Mythologies (although some people do like to include Apollo, Eros and Prometheus in their Arthurian Legend Research Paper Topics). In my opinion, a good Arthurian Legend Research Paper should never include anything from Classical Mythology or even Greek Mythology.
The second type of hybrid approach includes mixing Polytheistic Paganism with Classical Paganism. The basis for this combination is a blend of Pagan Mystery Religions, particularly Egyptian Paganism, with Classical Greek Mythology. The reason for mixing Pagan Mythology with Classical Mythology is to illustrate how the World was created and altered by gods and goddesses. It is always good to include this kind of hybrid approach in your Arthurian Legend Research Paper.
You can also combine the Epic Tales and Classical Mythology to give some fascinating results. These kinds of hybrid approaches are really the best when you are not entirely sure what you are doing with the combination. For example, if you have been using Polytheistic Paganism but are not totally sure how it fits into the Classic Epic, then you can use it in this way. On the other hand, if you are writing about Classical Mythology, then this kind of Hybrid approach might not be appropriate.
There are many other interesting Arthurian Legend research paper topics that involve blending Mythology and other genres. However, I feel that the above two examples are the most interesting and should always be included in any Arthurian Legend Research Paper. This is because these are the core sources of Mythology and Classic Epic Poetry.
I would like to finish this article by talking about the pros and cons of mixing Classical Mythology with Polytheistic Paganism. It seems to me that this Hybrid approach has some good advantages, although it has some problems. For example, combining Polytheistic Paganism with Classical Paganism tends to reduce the overall complexity of the Epic Tale to something that we can understand more easily.
In addition, Classical Paganism often doesn't have a very clear meaning and often blends with other Pagan Belief Systems which only complicates matters further. However, as long as you combine the Epic Tale with Polytheistic Paganism it can still be a very interesting hybrid approach to include in your Arthurian Legend Research Paper.
