Greek Mythologies: Gods and Mortals in Greek Literature

- Greek mythologies arise from various cultural aspects of the Greek society; however, the role of the divinities in human affairs is particularly accentuated in most, if not all, Greek mythologies. Nevertheless, each author displays the role of divinities and supernatural differently, as Homer in The Odyssey and The Iliad displays direct interaction between the supernatural divinities and the mortals.

When one thinks of these famous characters, Shakespeare’s tragedy of Macbeth comes into consideration.
