Although it was written over a year before this section, the thesis proposal which appends this report still serves as a good introduction to my ideas on myth in general , and in particular to my way of thinking when I began this inquiry into the photographic representation of myth. In exploring the visual and artistic dimensions of myth, I found that my thoughts and feelings on the subject changed vastly as the work progressed; however, the end result of this process of exploration has led me back to the beginnings of the work and allowed me, as T,S. Eliot put it, "to know the place for the first time." In a sense, then, this thesis report serves as a kind of travelogue, describing a journey which is not physical, but mental, internal, circular, and perhaps spiritual.
