Víctor Avilés Colón's comment, March 11, 2013 3:39 PM
En esta página web estaremos mostrándoles recursos y contenido sobre la mitología China a través de la cadena de tiempo entre los 700 A.C al siglo 14. Me intereso la mitología china porque me pareció fascinante la manera en que su civilización politeísta pensaba y valoraba sus dioses. Por otro lado, la mitología china es diversa en la cual un cuento o anécdota puede estar interpretada en varias formas pero sigue siendo el mismo cuento o leyenda. También, me motive, eligiendo el tema de la mitología china porque me llamo la atención sus criaturas y en la manera en que son representadas en animales reales y fantasiosos. Mi expectativa para este blog es ayudar a futuros estudiantes a tener un mayor conocimiento sobre la mitología china y, por otro lado, que tengan una fuente donde están compilados varios recursos de la mitología china. Para concluir, espero que mi esfuerzo pueda ayudar a alguien en un futuro a realizar cualquier tipo de investigación sobre la mitología china.
