What is a good essay topic?
I need an essay topic that relates to mythology.

for example a really good one someone came up with and the teacher loved was: Harry potter is modern greek mythology, and they have to argue that statement.

Honestly i cant think of anything like it! Could you guys help me come up with a topic?

ANSWER
How about how Sleeping Beauty is modern Greek Mythology.

Or Frank Herbert’s Dune is a popular movie while appearing futuristic, is simply the continuation of the story of the House of Atreus, or, House Atreides, a story that was written thousands of years ago.

The legend of the House of Atreus starts as a battle for the throne of Mycene. Rival brothers, Atreus and Thyestes, want not only to be king, but also the hand of Atreus’ wife, Aerope. The throne is passed back and forth several times between the brothers, but eventually, when Atreus’ power is restored, he discovers his wife’s adultery and, in retribution, cooks Thyestes sons and feeds them to their father. Thyestes, then, fathers a son by his daughter; the child, Aegisthus, is said to be destined to murder Atreus, which he eventually does. When Atreus’ son, Agamemnon, reaches adulthood, he banishes Thyestes and becomes ruler of Mycene. Aegisthus however, seduces Agamemnon’s wife, Clytemnestra, and the two of them join forces to kill him upon his return from the Trojan War. Orestes and Electra, Agamemnon’s children, then murder both Aegisthus and Clytemnestra. (Atreus)
