Lot Essay

Myth is a form of discourse where the subject remains invisible. Where the subject is a retelling or illustration of a mythology, the unit of meaning is closed and therefore inconsistent to discourse. To enhance discourse is to paint and draw in fragment, which is an open adventure; it is having paintings talk.
