As I was reading the autobiography “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings” by Maya Angelou in an archetypal perspective, I realized the story actually really resembles an archetypal plot. Marguerite starts off as an innocent young child and therefore representing the ‘child’ archetype. Marguerite is often singled out and made fun of, but Bailey, her older brother, sticks up for her no matter what making him the ‘hero’ of the story.

The two live in Stamps,Arkansas with their Momma (who’s actually their grandmother) who represents the ‘mentor’ archetype with her wisdom and love for the children.
