Myths are often about the inescapable, about the painful discovery of powerful constraints. They don’t tend to be stories about people who get away with things, but rather stories about people who try to ;people whose transgressions turn out to be a lesson for us all . Oedipus, Prometheus, Antigone all, in their different ways, suffer the most violent of sentimental educations. That there must be some things that no creature can elude- whether they be laws(natural or moral), desires( variously deemed moral or immoral), or biological limits ( the need to breathe, eat and die)- and that they must be discovered, recognised and observed are integral to our sense of ourselves, and the ways in which we question who we are.
