Greek Comedy & Norse Tragedy: In Search of a Truer Story
The mythologies of the Greeks and the Norse tap into truths about human existence; because they do so, they will continue to endure as towering monuments of human literature.
As explanatory narratives of the world, however, they fail to match the beauty of what Tolkien called the “True myth” of the Christian Gospel. Christ’s triumph over sin and death at the cross isn’t the bypassing of the tragedy depicted in these mythologies, it is the redemption of what was dimly apprehended in tragic myth by the true history of the God-man Jesus Christ.
