THE CHALLENGE OF THE HERO’S JOURNEY Now define “archetype.”
THE CHALLENGE OF THE HERO’S JOURNEY An archetype is a character, symbol, story pattern, or other element that is common to human experience across cultures. It is something seen in literature for thousands of years, regardless of area, culture, or language.
THE CHALLENGE OF THE HERO’S JOURNEY Examples of archetypes: underdog hero damsel in distress stepmother fairy godmother trickster scapegoat happy ending villain giant monster
THE CHALLENGE OF THE HERO’S JOURNEY According to Joseph Campbell, a hero’s journey is archetypal because all heroes’ journeys follow a similar pattern. Campbell describes the journey in three stages with various steps in each stage. Campbell’s journey can be applied to many heroes in movies/books with which you are familiar.
Stage 1 = Departure StepIn my own words… The Call to AdventureAn ordinary person finds out that his/her life is about to change. Refusal of the CallHe/she refuses to accept the adventure. The Beginning of the Adventure The hero’s adventure begins in his/her new role.
Stage 2 = Initiation StepsIn my own words… The Road of TrialsThe hero is faced with challenges and tests as the hero makes the transformation. The Experience with Unconditional Love The hero has the love and support from a friend, mentor or family member. It helps the hero survive the journey. The Ultimate BoonThe hero’s training is complete; the hero tackles the biggest challenge.
Stage 3 = Return Refusal of the ReturnAfter the goal has been accomplished, the hero may refuse to return with the gift either because he doesn’t think anything will change or the hero wants to stay where he is (in a better place). The Magic FlightThe hero experiences adventure/danger as he returns to life before his adventure. Rescue from WithoutThe hero needs guides and rescuers to bring him back to everyday life, especially if the hero has been wounded or weakened. The Crossing, or Return Threshold:The hero must remember and integrate his newly-found wisdom into his previous life and figure out how to share this wisdom with the rest of the world.
