Abstract:

Death is a frightening, unsettling prospect for us all. Myths and legends help express and explore those anxieties. But they tell us about more than mortal fear alone, for in a culture's tales of death, we can see what it is they value in life. In this final episode, we tell the ancient Greek myth of Antigone, who defied the laws of her land to bury her dead brother. We meet the most beloved and perfect of the Norse gods, Baldr, whose fate it was still to die. We examine the apocalyptic flood narratives found so frequently in myth, and we explore our enduring fascination with the undead, tracing the history of the vampire back to its roots in Eastern Europe and asking why these dark figures exert such a hold on our imagination still.
