On March 18th 1959, on the outskirts of Tibet, my grandfather Lhagyal Kamsang traveled with his father, Baba Chodar and with a group of Tibetans to New Delhi, India after China’s occupation of Tibet. Lhagyal was walking with his father, Baba chodar and with a group of Tibetans who wanted a new life in India. They followed a trail that lead to the border of India, the trail was surrounded with thin towering trees that could touch the clouds and the pathway would often twist as if it was a slithering snake. A delicate white mist would always surround the group of travelers and the gust of wind would provide them a blanket of wind. The group was filled with hopeful people who wanted a change in their lives and were willing to push
Compositional techniques have been used within the prescribed text to express memorable ideas. Martel has explored various themes in his novel ‘Life of Pi’ (published in 2001), such as reality versus fiction, and the power of storytelling. The story tells of a 16-year-old boy, Pi Patel, who is recounting his 227 days stranded on a lifeboat with an adult Bengal tiger to a fictitious author “writing” the story. The author’s use of allegory throughout the novel is highly developed and effective. An allegory is a representation of a complex idea through more concrete forms.
In the Motorcycle diaries, and specially, in these two quotes, “I now know, by an almost fatalistic conformity with the facts, that my destiny is to travel, or perhaps it’s better to say that traveling is our destiny, because Alberto feels the same. Still there are moments when I think with profound longing of those wonderful areas in our south. Perhaps one day, tired of circling the world, I’ll return to Argentina and settle in the Andean lakes, if not indefinitely then at least for a pause while I shift form one understanding of the world to another.” And “There we understood our vocation, our true vocation, was to move for eternity along the roads and seas of the world. Always curious, looking into everything that came before our eyes, sniffing out each corner but only ever faintly—not setting down roots in any land or staying long enough to see the
From Greek mythology to 21st century TV shows, the idea of what a hero is has changed. The antagonist was always patronized for his wrong doings and mishaps, the protagonist was always favored and rooted for during his journey, and the audience was always eager to find out what was going to happen next. The “hero’s journey” was consistently the traditional, saccharine, orthodox concept of the good guy embarking on a new adventure, with an objective that s/he must reach, while overcoming obstacles in order to transform her/him. Surprisingly, that all changed when we began to empathize with the bad guy during his journey. Those bad guys are not only in TV shows but also are in reality represented as celebrities.
Departure is the portion of the book before the hero goes on their journey. This includes events such as, the call to adventure, answering the call and crossing the threshold. David and Ryder both receive a call to adventure because, without one they would not be able to go on their journey and prove they are a hero. "Just to be on the safe side, then, it might be best if the four of you and Petra were to make your arrangements to run for it at a moment 's notice, if it becomes necessary" (Wyndham 121), when the group decides it 's best if they run away into the Fringes before anyone finds out about their deviation is the call to adventure because, it sets his path for his journey.
Joseph Campbell, the author of The Hero With A Thousand Faces, writes, “The crossing first of the open sewer, then of the perfectly clear river flowing over grass, the appearance of the willing helper at the critical moment, and the high, firm ground beyond the final stream. These are the everlastingly recurrent themes of the wonderful song of the soul 's high adventure.” (Campbell 20). These themes presented by Joseph Campbell illustrate what has become known as the “The Hero’s Journey” or “Monomyth”. The Monomyth structure has grown to become the most widespread form of storytelling and writing throughout all forms of media.
