Neil Gaiman's book American Gods points to something like this: how gods can Nice selection of Merimee's work.
Neil Gaiman's book American Gods points to something like this: how gods can lose or gain power according to people's faith, memory, and presence in their time. This tale also deals about the confuse between a forgotten goddess or demon and a beautiful statue. Could art representations of gods or demons carry something more inside them?
A power, an enchantment, a soul? Other point of this tale is the reflexion about the superficial or scornful interpretation that a society can make of its symbols and from others cultures.
An example that the author point to this direction is the constant comparative and even prejudiced dialogue that some characters have about the people, thoughts and customs from Paris and the interior of France and the dispute and a kind of patriotism that can be symbolized among other things by the sport.
