Mythphile is the mythology blog of Ellen N. Brundige, a freelance writer, scholar, and online entrepreneur who’s been posting about mythology and the ancient world on the internet since 1993. I have an MA in classics and another in mythological studies which I earned in 2007 at Pacifica Graduate Institute. Pacifica teaches its students the theories of C.G. Jung and Joseph Campbell, and you will find their psychological take on mythology lurking implicitly or explicitly in many of my posts.
Mythphile is devoted to sharing and retelling mythology, because mythology is meant to be shared and retold, and the internet is our newest medium for doing both. Sometimes, I’ll share scholarly musings about mythology. Other times, I’ll let myths speak for themselves. Most often, I explore the ways in which ancient mythology manifests in the modern world. Myths endure for centuries because they meant something to all those who passed them on. They still do.
