Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” Our dreams are the foundation, the building blocks, of a story that is yet to be written. Though they may seem premature or maybe even a little crazy, our dreams become the focal point of our story. Throughout the narrative, we are sure to encounter conflicts and speed bumps that threaten our dream. But this cannot keep us from writing our story. No, we must take up our pen and keep on writing word upon word upon word.
Character development is a change that a character goes through from the beginning to the end of the story. Often times, the writer creates developments only in the characters that he wants to highlight; therefore the importance of the character is determined by the amount of change that takes place. Character development is also very important in literary works that are more focused on character rather than events or its theme, as exemplified in the novella “Metamorphosis”. Although a common notion is that the main character is the most dynamic, therefore the most developed, and the foil: an ordinary and static secondary character to emphasize the qualities of the protagonist; Franz Kafka did the complete opposite in his novella. While both Gregor and Grete Samsa from Kafka’s “Metamorphosis” experienced character development, it was evident that Gregor’s metamorphosis symbolized and initiated the figurative transformation that Grete underwent.
History is defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as “a chronological record of significant events; events of the past” (Merriam-Webster). That’s generally what people think of when they hear the word “history”, but not everyone was/is satisfied with that term for the definition. Hannah Arendt, the writer of “The Concept of History”, stated that “These single instances, deeds or events, interrupt the circular movement of daily life…The subject matter of history is these interruptions – the extraordinary” (Arendt). By defining history as such, Arendt gives off the impression that history is for the greats or for those who were lucky enough to go on a life adventure. Another writer who wasn’t satisfied with the simplistic definition of

Since the beginning of mankind there has been a battle between good and evil. Wondrous stories passed down from generation to generation of epic heroes sent on quests, encountering and overcoming evil in order to attain their final goal. The poem Beowulf is an extraordinary example of a hero fighting the battle between good and evil. Beowulf was written in the adjournment of the reign of the Anglo-Saxon beliefs which can reveal an abundance of information about what was going on during this changing time period. Throughout Beowulf there are concepts of good versus evil.
One of the most notable theories came from Joseph Campbell 's Monomyth, The Adventure of the Hero or The Hero’s Journey, in the late 1940s. His theory suggests that each hero shares the same story: they overcome many challenges and go on their journey that would eventually lead to their reward. Amongst these challenges, there are villains, who are important to any hero’s journey. Just like the hero, the villains have their own journey, but it is not highly talked about. There is not an official theory for the villain, but others have said that the Villain 's Journey is actually quite alike to the Hero’s.
