In this essay, I will use two separate parts to illustrate the relationship between this film and mythology. The first part is the hero's journey of Harry Potter, the protagonist of this film, and the second section is how the archetypes in the movie relating to each other. There are a bunch of movies and novels that fit into hero's journey, which is an idea from Joseph Campbell. In fact, every separate movie in J.K Rowling's series of Harry Potter followed a small hero's journey, and the whole series also followed a big hero's journey. But I will be focus on this particular movie, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, in this essay.
Many of the women in these stories are portrayed as strong, independent women who, in many cases, are the hero themselves. Women in Chrétien and La Motte-Fouqué’s stories are given strong roles in order to highlight and emphasize the important virtues of peace, bravery, and power which ultimately transfers the role of the hero from men to women. In order to understand why the women in Yvain and The Magic Ring are considered to be the true heroes, the definition of a true hero must first be fully defined. Many will describe a hero as a character who performs deeds to remove people from danger. While that is correct, a “true hero” possesses many qualities that prove they are more than just a character who saves others from danger.
The common trait that defines these individuals as hero archetypes is that they all undergo a quest at some point in the story, which involves a separation, transformation, and return. Throughout the novel, we see characters like this always present; without them, prosperity and greatness would never be achievable due to pernicious forces like William Hamleigh or Bishop Waleran reigning down on the innocent. The theme that hero archetypes are always necessary in order for society to function properly, is constantly developed in The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett, and can be demonstrated through the actions of both Jack and Richard. Throughout the novel, Jack Jackson continuously performs actions that improve society. The heroic actions performed by Jack commence at a very young age.
A hero has many different qualities and simulations like any person. He has proven by his heroic characteristics in Harry Potter the Sorcerers Stone. Taking lead to his journey of being a hero. Harry Potter is an example of an archetypal hero, shown by his unusual birth circumstances, lives else where and initiating event. Supporting the evidence found for unusual birth circumstances, Harry Potter was faced against voldemort trying to make an end to him.
In his book, The Hero with a Thousand Faces, Joseph Campbell discovered a basic pattern that can be found in all stories portraying a hero. In his hero’s monomyth, the main character is called to an adventure into a foreign land and the skills obtained during the journey are later tested to defeat their toughest challenge. An example of a heroic monomyth can be illustrated in Marissa Meyer’s fantasy novel, Cinder, because the heroine is called to an adventure that she at first refuses, explores an unfamiliar landscape, the castle, where she learns more about her tragic past, and soon comes face to face with her greatest adversary. The events of Cinder follow a linear story that begins in New Beijing, China. The main character, Linh Cinder, is a young, cyborg mechanic at a local market.
The tales of heroes has been told countless of times ever since the beginning of storytelling. films, books, etc. Over time, people began noticing patterns and themes in these stories of heroism. Heroes, like Luke Skywalker, Superman, and Goku, apparently all shared something similar. One of the most notable theories came from Joseph Campbell 's Monomyth, The Adventure of the Hero or The Hero’s Journey, in the late 1940s.
Though these tasks put Harry through a lot of physical and emotional stress, he got through them successfully, because that was just the kind of person he was as a hero archetype. However, he didn’t do it alone. All of the archetypes in this book fit together to reach the resolution of the conflict, because Harry needed his friends and mentors, who fit into the supportive archetypes, to encourage him. Overall, Harry Potter, Mrs. Weasley, and Mad-Eye Moody all proved themselves to be strong examples of their respective archetype in J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. First, Harry was a prime example of the hero archetype, and showed this through his bravery, nobility, and the supernatural help that he received to defeat the villain.
The Webster's definition of a hero is “A person who is admired for great or brave acts or fine qualities”, this also happens to be one of the qualifications of being an epic hero. There are many things that can be used to compare and contrast Beowulf as an epic hero and a modern day hero, but you’ll find that the human idea of a hero was primarily the same in 700 CE as it is now although the job descriptions of hero’s have changed. In today’s time a person is usually considered a hero if they help the public good, like a police officer, soldier, firefighter and so on.
