Myths of Origin and Myths of the Future in Larissa Lai's Salt Fish Girl

  • Elizabeth C. Harmer McMaster University

Abstract


"The present exists as a tension between the way things have always been and the way things ought to be. Myth . . . is all about this dialectic of past and future; it is a narrative whose beginning and ending always inform the middle". (Laurence Coupe on Paul Ricoeur, Myth 97)
