Greece Essay Topics

A paper could be written on the many heroes of Greek Mythology, or you could narrow it down to just one.

Some important questions and topics to cover throughout your paper are:

  • What construed someone as being a hero in Greek Mythology?
  • What did they accomplish throughout their lives? Adventures? Other key events?

  • Greek Myth Gods
  • This could be accomplished in a couple of different ways. You could write your essay on all of the Gods of Greek Mythology and provide a summary of each God and their accomplishments. Or out of all of these Gods, you could narrow it down to just one. If you plan on writing about an Olympian god, you should only write about one.

  • The Creation of Myths
  • This will be an excellent choice if you are looking to give the reader a broader sense of the history of Greek mythology. Here are some important facts to include:

    • Origins of the universe.
    • Origins of the gods.
    • Origins of mankind.
    • Origins of animals.

  • The Titanomachy
  • This is the war between the Olympian and Titan gods. You could base your essay on what caused the war, who was involved in the war and the outcome itself.

  • Nature of Myths
  • This would be a good topic that would help you to explain how the Greeks explained their natural phenomena such as sunrises, sunsets, and the seasons.

    Here is a list of other general topics good for a Greek Mythology essay:


    • The Twelve Labors of Heracles
    • The role women played in Greek Mythology.
    • The Trojan War.
    • Greek Mythology and the impact on the modern world.
    • The comparison of Greek Mythology to today’s issues.
    • Creatures and monsters throughout Greek Mythology.
    • Moral lessons that could be taken from Greek Mythology.
