 Abstract
Starting from the so-called parasitical aspect of postmodernist fiction and its dependence on tradition, the paper aims at demonstrating the way in which John Barth approaches myth and transforms it into a contemporary paradigm. Paradoxically, postmodernist deconstruction of myth helps to enshrining the latter into the contemporary world.

 Rezumat
Pornind de la aşa-numitul aspect parasitic al literaturii postmoderne şi al dependenţei ei de tradiţie, lucrarea trateazǎ modul în care John Barth abordeazǎ mitul, transformându-l într-o paradigmǎ a contemporaneitǎţii. Paradoxal, demitizarea contribuie la reevaluarea miturilor în lumea contemporanǎ.
