Abstract
Myths have always been an inspiration to writers as they symbolize man's eternal quest for self-renewal and the revitalization of the world. In the twentieth century, there has been an unprecedented fascination with myths, which might be attributed to modern man's deep realization of his spiritual emptiness. Although scientific and technological advancements have been significant, they have only highlighted man's spiritual anguish. To reintroduce moral and spiritual values into human life, writers frequently employ myths as a rich and imaginative form of storytelling. The vast repertoire of myths not only provides ideas but also serves as a technique, a fresh perspective for comprehending and reacting to reality. This paper is an attempt to explore the mythical elements in Girish Karnad’s play Yayati.
