In the article, the author states that there are twelve steps to a hero 's journey. The first term is when the hero is in his Ordinary World. In this stage, the reader will learn background information about the main character and also other qualities about him. Secondly, there will be someone or something that will trigger the journey and that is called the call to adventure.

A hero, legendary on the battlefront, possessing strength that no meager army could hope to combat. Joseph Campbell, author of The Hero With a Thousand Faces, introduced the idea of the monomyth -the hero’s journey- which states that all heroes and heroines followed a common template. That template dictated their rite of passage. The monomyth continues to dictate a heroes rise and fall, their claim to success, or their terrific downfall. The midpoint of their journey, classified as The Ultimate Boon, is arguably where most heroes begin to stray from their righteous journey, falling back into the hellscape they first emerge from.
2.2 Related Theory Monomyth or also known as the Hero’s journey is a concept that was popularized by Joseph Campbell in his book entitled The Hero with a Thousand Faces that was first published in 1949. The term Monomyth was first introduced by James Joyce in his book entitled Finnegan 's Wake that was published in 1939 (Hoffman 4). It means that Campbell borrowed and developed the term "Monomyth” into his book. Campbell also used the idea of Carl Jung 's theory on the structure of human psyche. He often used the terms that were popularized by Carl Jung, such as 'Anima/animus and ‘Ego consciousness '.
Many know about the idea of the "monomyth," or the hero's journey as an outline for many of our modern books, movies, t.v. series, etc. Joseph Campbell's definition for the hero's journey is, "the quintessential (or best example) of an archetypal myth.

“A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.” This quote comes from Joseph Campbell in his book, The Hero With a Thousand Faces, where he lays out his theory of the monomyth. One of the aspects of the monomyth is the fifth stage, crossing the first threshold. This stage involves the hero entering a world completely unlike their own. In this new world they must adapt to the new environment by learning the rules of this unknown place and adhering to them.
Joseph Campbell’s The Hero With a Thousand Faces discusses the idea that every story and person experience a hero/heroin quest and follow the 17-stages of the Monomyth. In addition, Carl Jung’s Archetypes support Campbell’s idea because every person’s fate or journey encompass the human mind and every situation people expose themselves to. Following a path with no guarantee encompasses risk and curiosity but knowing that when the end comes and destiny prevails, an apotheosis arises and the ultimate spiritual, emotional and physical rebirth takes place. George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty Four and T.S. Eliot’s The Lovesong of J. Alfred Prufrock serve as a contradiction to Campbell’s Monomyth, though rough trials present to Winston Smith and Prufrock,

Story is an element that persists through the ages and connects all of mankind. The common themes of struggle, triumph, and rebirth are emotional stages that everyone can relate and bond over. Joseph Campbell first coined the term “Hero’s Journey” in the 20th century, while he was studying myths and legends from around the world.
