The paper concerns an analysis of a work of modern literature, the Harry Potter novels, in that it compares motifs and motifemes present in the novels with the mythemes and myths present in the classical mythology. The goal of the paper is to show that parts of classical myths are present in the contemporary literature regardless of the time separation and it explains why such an analysis is possible in the first place, how it was done and in what way are the contemporary literature and myth connected. The paper brings specific examples of microstories from the aforementioned novels, which were compared with the specific mythemes from the classical mythology, and sometimes, they are both connected by the stories which are younger than classical mythology and older than the Harry Potter novels and so they act as a bridge between both sides of the analysis.
