King Arthur was said to be a great king, who ruled over Camelot in the fifth or sixth century. King Arthur estimated to have been born around 475 A.D., “Tintagel has come to be associated with King Arthur as his birthplace, depicted by the Welsh monk Geoffrey of Monmouth” (Walker para 5). Arthurian Literature commonly depicted daring sword fights, chivalrous knights, damsels in distress and even magic. Though there are few records of a true King Arthur does not mean there is not a man behind the great legend that came forth in the mid twelfth century. “The legend of King Arthur may have been based on the life of one or more Celtic warriors who fought the Anglo-Saxon invaders of England in the late fifth and early sixth century.”
A hero's journey is a pattern of narrative identities that appears in many dramas, storytellings, myths, and psychological development. The journey consist of twelve different steps and in the story Beowulf we read about the magnificent and rough journey that Beowulf and this men accomplish. Many people question if Beowulf is considered a hero and if what he did was good. The journey that he embarked on, leads me to believe that Beowulf is a hero and always will be. The first step in the hero's journey is called the “call to adventure” this is when something is disturbed from external pressure of from inner conflict.

The first character I will be analyzing is Sir Gawain. Sir Gawain is one of the main characters within this story. In the beginning of the story, we see that Sir Gawain is full of optimism, eagerness, and loyalty to protect his king and his kingdom from the Green Knight. Sir Gawain is seen as the embodiment of chivalry. An example of chivalrous manners can be found such as in his speech to Arthur when he accepts the Green Knight 's challenge.
For example, on page 117, paragraph 7, Arthur says “ So this is it, we 're going to die”. This is an example of how Arthur does not go out of his way for others or himself and is willing to accept fate. Arthur likes to use humor to deflect difficult or scary situations. He says "Would it save you a lot of time if I just gave up and went mad now?" (24.45).
He put his life before others and although he didn’t prevail he showed a courageous act and that is why people remember the story of Beowulf. Arthur, same as Beowulf was courageous and put himself before others “ My Lord, I care nothing… my life now!” ( “From the Day of Destiny” pp
The hero’s journey archetype has appeared in many forms of literature and will most likely continue to do so for as long as long as literature exists. The story of Equality 7-2521 and his journey to find the true value of individuality is one example of this very commonly used archetype.
He was given a job working in the kitchen until his first great journey. In King Arthur and His Knights of the Round Table by Roger Lancelyn Green, Sir Gareth follows the hero’s cycle as he is called to adventure, faces trials and crises, and returns to a new life at the end of his journey. The first way that Sir Gareth fits the hero’s cycle is that he is called to adventure at the beginning of his journey. He is called when the Lady Linnet comes to King Arthur’s court asking for someone to save her sister, the Lady Lionel.
Every hero who goes on the journey to complete the mission follows a similar path. This path, according to Joseph Campbell, has twelve steps. The play, The Golden Fleece Part I by Zachary Hamby follows these twelve steps of the hero’s journey. The ordinary world is the first step which the hero is introduced sympathetically to the audience, so they can identify and understand the dilemma.
