Unspoken is a book written by Luke Allnutt. The book is based around the story of his dad dying of a terminal illness, brain cancer. The tumor Luke’s dad developed was traced back to an immense amount of radiation he experienced when he was a child. The original round of radiation was helping cure the cancer that caused him to lose his sight, the very thing that cured him as a child will kill him later in his life. Upon the realization that the events you read about or watch an television was happening in Luke’s life affected him greatly.
2001: A Space Odyssey as a Hero’s Journey Chloe O’Connor Arthur C. Clarke’s 2001: A Space Odyssey can be considered something of a pseudo-hero’s journey story, with a greater focus on the ultimate reason the hero must make their journey. In this iteration of the hero’s journey, humankind is the hero. The quest they must depart on is evolution to a higher form through Dave Bowman’s individual journey, though he is certainly not the ultimate hero, merely the catalyst for the hero to truly be heroic.
Siddhartha vs. Star Wars Everyone goes on a different journey in the course of their life and everyone's journey has a different outcome. In almost every journey, there is a hero. This person is the one who goes into the world and achieves something great. They normally do this great deed on behalf of some sort of group. There are two main heroes within Star Wars by George Lucas and Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse.
The hero’s journey describes the pattern of a story that is seen in myths, drama, fantasy and others. It includes specific archetypes that create that pattern . Without the majority of these archetypes, the story could not be defined as thus. Star Wars: A New Hope is a classic example of the hero’s journey.

There is a theory that there are only seven different story-lines in the world, but they are all re-used in different ways to make up all of the books and movies and plays we have today. If that theory were true, Luke's life fell into the category of the quiet kid with no glaringly obvious hopes, dreams or aspirations, if that category existed. His life seemed to helplessly revolve around school, and he spent all of his nights slaving over books and copies, studying his subject matter with an outlook of frustration on his world. Luke was nothing special to himself or to anybody else. Of course, if he found the right person, they would be able to find the special and unique aspects of Luke and embrace them, but that somebody just hadn't seemed
For instance, Luke fought against the Empire and destroyed the Death Star. He also seeks to stop injustice. He follows the code in the movie when he joined the Rebels and fought against the Empire. In fact, the Empire was committing many cruel acts. Secondly, Luke portrays himself as a hero with a good moral character.
Obi-wan Kenobi is a christ figure according to the criteria on page 119. Obi-wan had a confrontation with the dark side, Anakin tried to lure him, just as Jesus had a confrontation with the devil. This jedi master is also very forgiving as Jesus was, Obi-wan forgave Anakin for turning to the dark side and wanted him to come back to the light side. He had disciples such as Anakin before he turned and Luke Skywalker, like Jesus had disciples and ones that weren’t all equally devoted. When confronting Anakin, Obi-wan sacrifices himself to Anakin and is killed but spiritually resurrects in the wilderness when Luke Skywalker needs him.
King Arthur is one of the best kings that has ruled over Britain, throughout all of history. Arthur ruled with honor, loyalty, and chivalry, which made him a great king. Many lessons that he learned on his journeys helped him to become the person that he is. Arthur’s journey becoming king can be seen in the novel The Sword in the Stone by T.H. White, and is very similar to Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey.
In Episode IV we see Luke trying to learn how to use The Force and we are able to see his struggles of first interacting with The Force. Obi Wan Kenobi gives Luke a helmet with a shield on it to cover his eyes so that his eyes cannot deceive him while he is trying to let The Force takeover his actions and also tell it what to do. Luke is trying to get in touch with the Force by using a lightsaber. There are many different lightsabers shown in Episode IV, we
The Hero's Journey is a form of story structure that can be seen in almost all stories. The Hero's Journey is a twelve stage structure that travels through the ordinary world, call to adventure, refusal, meeting with the mentor, crossing the threshold, tests, approach to the inmost cave, ordeal, reward, the road back, resurrection, and ends with the return with the elixir. The Hero's Journey structure seems to fit into any story because of the story arcs that are followed by the heroes of stories. A great example of this is the movie, Toy Story. From the characters to the story arc Toy Story oozes with the structure of the Hero's Journey.
Campbell’s hero cycle is a very specific set of steps that shows is there is an epic hero. There are many components involved in this hero cycle including an ordinary world where the hero begins the story, a call to adventure, crossing into the unknown, several tests, the supreme ordeal, the road back, and more. If a story fits Campbell’s hero cycle, then the story must include most, if not all, of the steps in the cycle. I analyzed Purple Hibiscus to test if this novel followed the hero cycle or not. Purple Hibiscus follows the life of Kambili and Jaja, who both live in Enugu, Nigeria.
