There are similarities and multiple differences between the way the authors of I Am Malala and The Hobbit portray the hero’s journey, and most are differences. First of all, the biggest difference in the hero’s journey for the novels was the assistance. In I Am Malala, Malala’s father stays by her side during her journey in sharing her beliefs, but Gandalf leaves Bilbo early in the journey.Furthermore, the assistance in the hero’s journey is very important, because it contributes to many things that happen later on in the story. If Malala’s father had left in her journey, she probably wouldn’t have been shot, nor would she have gotten a Nobel Peace Prize, because she would have never met the reporters who helped her spread her beliefs; If Gandalf had stayed with Bilbo and the dwarves like Malala’s father had stayed with her, they never would have been caught by the wood elves and they would have never had to defeat the giant spiders,
In addition, they perform duties in a way that inspires and passes on for generations. In comparison between Beowulf and Katniss, Beowulf emerges as a more effective hero since he possesses more qualities of an epic hero than Katniss. Even though both characters have similar traits, Beowulf displays more epic traits than Katniss. Also, Beowulf is written in an epic language and the hero battles many supernatural beings, unlike Katniss. However, Katniss and Beowulf are both important epic heroes in their own narratives and have similar traits and distinctive
In many mythological stories and writings, there are various archetypal characters that interact with the hero. One of the most influential of these archetypes is the mentor. The mentor serves as a source of wisdom and guidance, helping the hero arlong their journey and providing support. In J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter series, the character Remus Lupin serves as Harry Potter’s mentor in various situations. Lupin embodies many of the roles and characteristics of the classic mentor throughout the series.
It would honestly be difficult and frightening to imagine what life could have been like if I never took that risk in signing up for hockey as it has affected so much of my life. Not only did hockey play an enormous role in my life, it also played an important role in my parents and sister’s life as well. Since I progressed into an excellent player, I joined a rep team where we would travel to distant towns and cities to play constantly. The type of commitment that was needed for rep hockey had a big toll on my parents especially when factoring in the costs of time and

Though each of these identity crises takes place for different reasons, and affects the subject in different ways, all of these crises change the lives and the personalities of the impressionable minds they latch on to. The main character of A Separate Peace, Gene, returns to Devon and tells the story as a flashback, but in reality it seems that Gene is trying to forget the story and his past egregious actions. Notwithstanding, during his stay at Devon, Gene is heavily affected by his own identity crisis as he balances on the edge of hopelessness and happiness. Early within the book, Gene is faced with his willingness to obey Finny, his best friend. Gene desires the charisma of Finny, but he detests the hold that Finny has over him.
In The Book Thief by Markus Zusak and The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls, the main characters mirror one another in several ways. Between Jeanette and Liesel there are many strong literary connections. Both Liesel and Jeanette are both raised in extreme circumstances, overcome an impoverished childhood, and have a crucial father figure who teaches them how to survive. One way that both characters compare closely to each other is because they grew up in extreme environments. It is astonishing that both Liesel and Jeanette were able to develop into successful adults despite the inconveniences of their surroundings.
The characters and themes of both Baz Luhrmann’s ‘Midnight in Paris’ and Woody Allen’s ‘The Great Gatsby’ make not only amazing parallels of each other, but increasingly accurate interpretations of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s original novel ‘The Great Gatsby’. Both directors take Fitzgerald’s original west egg characters, and not only bring them to life, but show the true depth and impact they have on each other and their “perfect world”. In the set-up of ‘Midnight in Paris’ both characters Gil and Inez start off as a perfect couple living their best life. Allen’s ‘The Great Gatsby’ lays out Tom and Daisy as a troubled couple that puts on a façade behind wealth and integrity. In my revision of both Allen’s and Lurhmann’s interpretation of the original novel ‘The Great Gatsby’ I will make the connections of both characters and themes and show the effectiveness of the films as representations of Fitzgerald’s ‘The Great Gatsby’.
Author F. Scott Fitzgerald often referred to his short story “Winter Dreams” as a prototype to his famed novel The Great Gatsby. This is because the two stories share awfully similar themes and characters with each other. The two stories differentiate from each other in various ways as well. Reading these two great works really depicts the similarities between the two. The characters in both “Winter Dreams” and The Great Gatsby share undeniable similarities and yet subtle differences that not only drive them together but also make them unique in their own way.
Growing up is something that we all experience some time in our lives. Whether we eagerly await or stubbornly resist it, the coming of age is an inevitable and crucial time in our lives that builds up our character and personality. Correspondingly, in Something Wicked This Way Comes, Will Halloway and Jim Nightshade are both struggling to go through this transition as they face the temptation and evil that comes along with growing up. In the fantasy novel Something Wicked This Way Comes, Bradbury applies the theme of coming of age through the difference of mentalities, the change of self identity, and finally their approach to the world. To begin with, the boys hold a more innocent and immature look on the world in comparison to their older
