Mythopoeia by Kiya

Mythopoeia has never really stopped; there is a constant flow of interpretation and reinterpretation present in understandings of sacred stories, and the development of new ones. However, mythopoesis as a significant literary phenomenon emerges from the same process of disenchantment that caused so much else, as a deliberate attempt to re-enchant and recapture that sense of magical world in some fashion. In the early crucible of what’s technically called “secondary world fantasy” – fantastic fiction set in an imagined location – there was a great deal of active discussion of mythopoeia.
