In Joseph Campbell’s famous book The Hero with a Thousand Faces, he wrote, “[There] will always be the one, shape-shifting yet marvelously constant story that we find, together with a challengingly persistent suggestion of more remaining to be experienced than will ever be known or told” (Campbell 1). Through this statement, Campbell is describing the main idea of his concept known as “monomyth”. The idea of the monomyth explains a similar series of steps that nearly every hero or protagonist follows throughout their journey. Whether it be characters from classic works of the past or characters from new movies filmed in modern day, every hero from literature follows the monomythic outline in one way or another. It was this concept that propelled Joseph Campbell towards being a well known name by scholars all across the globe.
In describing the shell at first glance, Doty writes that is “not, exactly, green: closer to bronze,” signifying that it is still grand, yet weathered and worn as time has passed. As death has closed in on the crab, it initially looks old and tarnished, yet as it is more closely examined, the inside of the shell has a “lavish lining” of “a shocking, Giotto blue.” Doty argues here that the deepest part of the shell is the most beautiful, showing it was not as it appeared to be. This shocking color is the “size of a demitasse,” a detail that is largely more delicate than the stronger imagery used previously in the poem. As the poem draws to a close, Doty leaves readers contemplating the connection between the crab and a human, posing “What color is the underside of skin?” There is beauty in death, Doty argues, and it is implied that the color is one of brilliant beauty. Details regarding color are employed in order to reach the grand conclusion that the little things humans leave behind are often the most beautiful, and that they should be celebrated.

Throughout history, humans have crafted countless stories of heroes, from the ancient journeys of Beowulf and Odysseus, to the modern ones of Harry Potter and Meredith Grey. At first glance, these stories are diverse in the extreme, coming from all different cultures and about all manner of heroes. One might think such different tales have nothing in common, but upon a closer examination, one notices a single plot template that is featured in almost every good story ever written. This idea, that heroic stories usually follow the same sequence of action, was realized by a mythologist named Joseph Campbell. Campbell calls this template the ‘Hero’s Journey’ or ‘Monomyth’, which has three major parts: separation, initiation, and return.
