Question:

What are different ways monsters function in folklore and myth?

Emily A.
Answer:

There are many different theories about the ways monsters function in folklore, sometimes called Monster Culture. Monsters are almost always seen as something "other" in order to define cultural normativity. They embody the fears and anxieties of a culture. Monsters tend to police the borders of the possible, warning against violation of values, but also provide an irresistible space for fantasy. In this way, monsters can reflect many different important views of a culture.
