"Myth" is no longer a word with sacred power todayand has turned into a cliché used in a pejorative waymost of the time. The loss of sacred power in mythreveals people''s confidence in and favor on reasonand science. However, if we consider the contemporarypopularity of the fantastic genre, including fantasy,horror and science fiction, we would deduce thatstories and myths, as a countercurrent of reason andscience, continue to arouse people''s imagination.This book, therefore, stresses how myth works in thepostmodern age through filmic narration and attemptsto bring to light how the Matrix trilogy, repletewith mythemes and archetypes, restores human beings''connection with myth, stories, the spiritual and thenatural. From the perspective of analyticalpsychology, as Carl Jung proposed in his theory ofmyth, the present work further delves into thecollective unconscious through the Matrix trilogy''sartistic rendering of a postmodern myth. Thisanalysis should be favorable for those interested inthe cinematic, mythical, and psychologicalreflections on the Matrix trilogy.
