The movie The Lovely Bones follows the initiation pattern of the hero’s journey from separation to return, but alters some of the elements to form a modern adaptation of the traditional storyline. Susie Salmon goes through the separation phase, journeys through the liminal zone, brings an ultimate boon back to humanity, and dies, but does not reintegrate into society for the rest of her life and return as a hero. Her atonement is split between her family and Mr. Harvey, though Susie moves on instead of seeing through the death of Mr. Harvey. Additionally, Susie does not meet with an actual sex goddess, but taking revenge on Mr. Harvey acts as a substitute for the sex goddess in certain ways. The separation stage of the story begins when Mr. Harvey murders Susie on December 6, 1973.

A Hero is a person who is admired or idealized for courage, or noble qualities; i,e Brave, Adventurous, and Honest.Bilbo’s journey closely resembles the Hero’s Journey because he shows the characteristics of an ordinary hero while still being extraordinary in the same process.As Bilbo follows the Hero’s Journey he has become extraordinary. Bilbo has become extraordinary during his refusal to call because he was going to prove that he could do it even if he wasn't adventurous in the beginning. After being proposed an adventure Bilbo replies with ”Sorry! I don’t want any adventures, thank you; Good Morning!, We don’t want any adventures here, Thank you!”(Tolkien 6-7).

In The Giver by Lois Lowry, the main character, Jonas, can undoubtedly be considered a hero. Jonas’ actions throughout The Giver are a quality example of the archetypal pattern of the Hero’s journey, and to depict this I used a variety of text, illustration, and color throughout my graphic novel. Jonas undergoes all three stages of the hero’s journey throughout the novel. He experiences the first step in this journey, the call to adventure, when he is selected to be the Receiver of Memory. Jonas, like most archetypal heroes during this step, notes that he believes that his life will change due to this call to a mysterious adventure.

While passing through, Odysseus strapped himself up even though he was instructed not to,”“... so I tied on my cuirass and took up two heavy spears, then made my way along the foredeck…”(623). The whooshing of the crisp breeze blew straight through the men. They were feeling something coming, but what?

The second thing that the ghost told Hamlet was that he should do no harm to his mother, even though she married her husband’s murderer. Before the ghost leaves, he said to Hamlet to remember him. After Hamlet had his speech with his dead father, his goal was to avenge the King Hamlet’s death. Hamlet had many chances to kill Claudius and get over with his revenge, but he hesitated most of the times. The first time that Hamlet had the opportunity to kill his dad’s murderer was after the “Mousetrap”, which was the play that presents the true story of a murder carried out in Vienna.
Chofia Basumatary Course Instructor- Shelmi Sankhil Reading Fantasy: C.S Lewis and J.R.R Tolkien MA English (4th Sem) 5 May 2017 Freewill in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring Loyalty is still the same, whether it win or lose the game; true as a dial to the sun, although it be not shined upon- Samuel Butler. In the above extract we can clearly see that loyalty comes out of the feeling of selflessness that is exercised in perilous times. The dictionary definition merely means “deeds made or done freely or of one’s own accord”, however there is a deeper motivation which runs in one’s voluntary commitment towards the other or the mission at hand.

The story of sword and sorcery commonly revolves around the hero who fights against the barbarian. In addition, Tuttle (2005) claims that this sub-genre can also be called as heroic fantasy since the story tells about a journey of the hero to complete a mission, usually to save a person or a thing. Nevertheless, in writing a fantasy story, the author does not always stick in one particular sub-genre. The author can also combine different sub-genres into one work. Thus, it can result in a new creation that is unique and remarkable.
