Classical Antiquity is a particularly important field in terms of “Hope studies” […]. For centuries, the ancient tradition, and classical mythology in particular, has been a common reference point for whole hosts of creators of culture, across many parts of the world, and with the new media and globalization only increasing its impact. Thus, in our research at this stage, we have decided to study how the authors of literary and audiovisual texts for youth make use of the ancient myths to support their young protagonists (and readers or viewers) in crucial moments of their existence, on their road into adulthood, and in those dark hours when it seems that life is about to shatter and fade away. However, if Hope is summoned in time, the crisis can be overcome and the protagonist grows stronger, with a powerful uplifting message for the public. […] Owing to this, we get a chance to remain true to our ideas, to keep faith in our dreams, and, when the decisive moment comes, to choose not hatred but love, not darkness but light.
Katarzyna Marciniak, University of Warsaw, From the introductory chapter

Keywords: hope, youth, childhood, life difficulties, mythology.

*********

Tom zaprasza czytelników do refleksji nad rolą motywu nadziei w kulturze dziecięcej i młodzieżowej inspirowanej mitologią. Nadzieja jest obecna w utworach dla młodych odbiorców na całym świecie. Wspiera ich bohaterów (a tym samym odbiorców dzieł) w podróży od dzieciństwa ku dorosłości i daje im siłę, by mogli mierzyć się z wyzwaniami, które niesie przyszłość. Trzydzieścioro troje badaczy analizuje fenomen nadziei, korzystając ze swych różnych kompetencji metodologicznych (np. archeologia, badania nad recepcją, filologia klasyczna, historia, literatura dziecięca, neuropsychiatria) oraz doświadczeń regionalnych (Australia, Białoruś, Izrael, Kamerun, Niemcy, Nowa Zelandia, Polska, Stany Zjednoczone, Szwajcaria, Wielka Brytania, Włochy).

The book is to be recommended for academics as well as graduate and postgraduate students working on the reception of Classical Antiquity and its transformations around the world.

Our Mythical Hope is the latest collection of articles by scholars participating in an ongoing collaboration to ensure that the beauty and profundity of Classical myth remain known, and (hopefully) remain part of our modern culture. The size of this compendium, the sweep of subjects considered, the involvement of leading experts from around the world, all testify to how important and extensive this initiative has become over the last decade. The project’s continued commitment to engage all ages, especially the young, and to extend its outreach beyond the Academy merely, makes it a leading model for how research retains its relevance.
