The Fault In Our Stars
Making connections between modern literature and greek myths
WARNING: I HAD TO INCLUDE A BIG SPOILER TO MAKE A CONNECTION. IF YOU HAVE NOT GOTTEN PAST PAGE 260 of tfios I STRONGLY SUGGEST YOU DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS PRESENTATION.
What is The Fault in Our Stars about?
Augustus Walters- Hazel's love interest. Was diagnosed with osteosarcoma (I cannot pronounce this and I swear if any of you even snicker at my attempt to say it out loud I will throw this laptop at you) when he was young and lost his right leg to the disease.
Isaac- Augustus's best friend, befriends Hazel once she and Augustus begin to get close.
Opinion on the book/ do all books connect to Greek myths?
While I cannot say ALL books connect to Greek myths, (unfortunately, I haven't read every book ever written) I can say a vast majority of the books I have read have at least one connection to Greek mythology. Literature is timeless, so of course some themes and ideas will be repeat themselves. Even Shakespeare took some ideas from Greek mythology!
