Many people claim a hero is someone “special” no one normal can be a hero. What if I told you that people that are a hero to you thought they were normal until they went on their hero 's journey and discovered themselves? A hero 's journey comes in steps which are the Normal World, Call to Adventure, Refusal of the call, Mentor, Start the journey,Tests, Allies, Supreme ordeal, and lastly the Resolution. I 'm going to take you through the steps of Malcolm X’s hero 's journey. Malcolm X as we all know was a inspirational activist, but his hero’s journey was extremely unique. Let us take a look at Joseph Campbell (1904-1987) who was recognized worldwide as a mythologist, also working with comparative religion too. One of his many books, The Hero with a Thousand Faces, which has sold over a million copies and translated into twenty languages. Campbells concept, also called the monomyth, details on how all stories, fiction or nonfiction, follow a certain pattern.
Have you noticed that there are many similarities in the plot of popular books and movies? The hero 's journey is an archetype that is commonly used. An archetype is a typical example of a book, a movie and so on. The hero’s journey is a series of steps a character in literature takes to become a hero. The steps in the hero’s journey are Call to Adventure, Assistance, Departure, Trials, Approach, Crisis, Treasure, Result, Return, New Life, and Resolution. In The Hobbit Bilbo Baggins is invited to go on an adventure with Gandalf the wizard and thirteen dwarves. Bilbo soon finds himself in an adventure he has never anticipated on being on. Bilbo faces the giant orcs, crazy wolves, and a scary forest to try and get the gold that lays under the mysterious dragon, Smaug. A similar book to The Hobbit is a memoir called A long way gone. In A long way gone a little boy named Ishmael Beah begins an adventure away from home; savage rebels chase innocent
Everyone has heard a good hero story, because they are everywhere, in the media, in history, and in even with each other. Tales of action and adventures have been around since humans have known how to tell stories, but every story has a similar journey that they embark on. The tale of the hero has many variations, but they each follow the same basic pattern that Joseph Campbell describes in his book A Hero with a Thousand Faces. Some stories only follow the basic outline of a hero, and others can be traced along the route exactly. An example that follows the outline exactly is The NeverEnding Story (1984) which is a movie based on a German book by Michael Ende. The tale is very interesting because it does not follow the path of only one
It was 10.30pm when all of us got together as one to start the jouney from the fort bus stand. We were excited when the bus started moving and couldn't wait to reach the destination. It was all misty on the way and all we knew is that we are going to have a great time. The bus driver didn't stop exactly where we wanted to get down.
What makes a hero? A cape? A villain? A sidekick? How about a journey with a call to adventure, assistance, trials, a crisis, treasure, and a new life. Most hero’s follow a cycle called the hero’s journey. Take for instance Sir Gawain of Camelot. Gawain gets a call to adventure and assistance. Then trials and a crisis. Finally Gawain finds treasure and begins his new life. In the tails of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table, Sir Gawain’s journey follows that of a hero.
The hero's journey is a popular form of writing that involves a hero who embarks on an adventure, quest, or journey where in the climax they win a victory, then comes home transformed or changed. The book, “The Odyssey” is a prodigious example of the hero's journey. Odysseus is the hero of “The Odyssey”. All heroes in a hero's journey display particular traits. Odysseus displays perseverance and fortitude, two specific characteristics that all heroes should display.
All societies have tales of legendary people, tales of people who do the impossible- heroes. Heroes come in all forms. We have all heard about them, in some story, rather it be in a movie or a book. What you may not realize is that every hero has a journey, a journey that leads them to become the person capable of these amazing feats. This process is called the heroes journey. Here we will follow the heroic tale of Percy Jackson, from “Percy Jackson, The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. Just as most heroes, Percy begins his journey unaware of the new life he will have, once finished with his journey. Unaware the he is a demigod, the son of the god Poseidon. In his ordinary life, Percy is a young boy dealing with obstacles that he feels are getting him into trouble. The obstacles that plague Percy are ADHD and dyslexia. The only constant in his life is his mom, who is in a troubled relationship with his stepfather. In a heroic tale, there are steps that define the journey that develops the heroic qualities. This pattern is defined as the separation, initiation/transformation, and the return phases.
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is an excellent utopian/dystopian fictional story about a man who fights for the freedom to read. The government in this world has made almost every book (with a few exceptions) illegal. They have done this due to the contradictory ideas found in them. It was thought that all of the contradictions might confuse citizens on what is the truth and what isn’t. This book, along with being a utopian fiction, follows the Hero’s Journey archetype. Even though this book may not have purposely been made as an example of the Hero’s Journey the book and many others follow the paradigm. It may not be a perfect example, however, it definitely has it’s moments.

The Hero’s Journey appears in many stories and has three stages with several steps.
To be a hero. No more does it take a brave knight draped in armor raving his sword at a fire breathing dragons to be a hero. To be a hero can be as simple as changing up from something you've been use to struggle a little bit but then rock it afterwards. Hero’s live amounts us everywhere. Here I will take you through one of my favorite hero journey stories. We will read about life before her journey, entering her journey and how she adapted, and how her life has changed since her journey.
The Mississippi never freezes over. I guess that’s why everybody claimed it to be a miracle. I was already missing the Beautiful City by the time my new leather boots set foot on the frozen river. Months before the journey Momma was already sewing us new clothes and saving her coins to purchase us boots from the tailor. Leaving Nauvoo, was one of the hardest things I’ve done. Prophet Brigham Young taught us faith and how that will keep us going on this trek to Zion. I found that it is much easier to sing about Zion than actually making the journey. A few days into the trek several families turned around and headed back.
During his landmark interview in 1988 with Bill Moyers, mythologist Joseph Campbell explained the significance of hero myths and why they continue to be of interest to audiences today. In his interview, Campbell explains that there are two types of heros and how their journeys might be different. Heroes have sacrificed and have a moral objective that inspire average people to want to do something similar. They have a transformation of themselves, that show anybody can change. As well as heroes go and achieve something that most would view as unobtainable. In the novel Into the Beautiful North you follow the journey of a girl named Nayeli and how she crosses the mexican-american border, in order to find men willing to travel back to mexico and fight the encroaching drug problem, as well as give the women men to marry and start a life with. She also comes to the US to
