As a literary device: to make the fictional narrative more credible.

The image of the drowned land or city or island (exemplified in Plato's tale of Atlantis) occupies an important place in mythical thought. Sometimes its destruction or disappearance is attributable to the bad behaviour of mankind ("Genesis", the tale of Noah [en.wikipedia.org], very similar to older sources such as "Atrahasis," [en.wikipedia.org]; Deucalion [en.wikipedia.org]); compare this with the arrogance of the ancient Atlanteans. In other words, it's a kind of "Goose that Laid the Golden Eggs" [en.wikipedia.org] narrative: mankind could have had a nice place to live (in the case of Gilgamesh, even immortality): but, because of irresponsible behaviour subsequently punished by the gods, that opportunity was lost.

Could the image of the drowned land be a symbol of lost chldhood or youth: a concept that could apply to the whole of humanity ... ?

It might all depend on what is meant by "Atlantis ... "
