Greek Mythology is undoubtedly one of the greatest treasure troves of stories that the world mines to tell and retell, to present and re-present, time and time again. They're not called "classics" for nothing, after all.
Are you familiar with these myths? You should be, because many of these great stories have been rehashed, repackaged and retold through different perspectives through centuries. Whether you notice it or not, many of our modern books, movies and TV shows echo the basic character templates of the Greek Myths. Whether they are heroes or villains, gods or mortals, many of these stories have great characterizations remade into modern times and given a modern twist. And some of these great stories and characters can be found in this quiz. Can you try guessing what happened to them or what their story was all about?
It's also great to see how creative these stories are, to present us with story arcs, cautionary tales and plot patterns that are still useful today in a modern context. A great writer can get some of these tales, arcs and patterns and sell it to us today in their newer packages. And most of the sellable ones are the tragic stories, featuring tragic heroes.
