The Myth of Pygmalion in Modern Culture
Jana Herzog, 2019, master's thesis

Abstract: In this thesis, I explore the myth of Pygmalion in modern culture, establishing the definitions of the myth and mythology. Furthermore, I research the myth of Pygmalion in ancient Greece and focus on Ovid’s version of the myth that is used as a basis for further analysis. Historical overview of the myth of Pygmalion is provided as the myth underwent various changes throughout different eras – it was reshaped and redefined, while the roles of the creator and the created were changed and switched. The argument that myth can be applied to every aspect of everyday life is proposed as one chapter focuses on modern interpretations. The myth of Pygmalion is relevant not only in film and music industry, but it applies to each individual. In the last chapter of the theoretical part, the myth as a symbol is explained and the question why the myth is still being transmitted today arises.
