Perhaps Hesiod and Ovid are not the only ones with this idea of a utopian “golden age”. In the african myth Origins of Death we are introduced to a world similar to greco-roman mythology. A world where there was “no such thing as death. No crying, there was no disease, everybody was well and happy”(pg. 114). Just like the greco-roman myths, We begin with a world that is entirely naive to the possibilities of death and misfortune. I wonder if we could also compare their decline with the other myths we’ve read?
