Ode to Mrs. York

By Erica Brown

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), January 2002

The author discusses the definition of myth and its uses. She develops in greater detail Gillmanâ??s distinction among its uses. Although she acknowledges that it works for Gillman and others, she asserts that myth is not a comfortable word; it gnaws away at commitment and trivializes that which is most precious to us.
