Hero's Journey In The Demon Lover

107 Words1 Page
In addition, the magic flight in “The Demon Lover” comes when Mrs. Drover takes her boon--her life--and attempts to run away. She tries to escape with her life from this unknown force and since she does not know what she runs from, she becomes forced to continue running with the ultimate boon. This serves as one of the more dangerous journeys as the one she takes when crossing the first threshold which remains not as dangerous. Although Mrs. Drover does not intentionally begin the journey with the knowledge of what she must do once she retrieves, or acknowledges, the boon, she unknowingly completes Joseph Campbell’s hero’s journey.
