The Hero’s Journey

Far over the misty mountains cold
To dungeons deep and caverns old
We must away ere break of day
To seek the pale enchanted gold.

   J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

Every few years we enjoy yet another movie that tells the same story~ The Wizard of Oz, Star Wars, The Matrix, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings.  Why does the same storyline continue to fascinate and attain blockbuster status?  The research of mythologian Joseph Campbell tells why.  It is the story and archetypes of the hero’s journey that resonate most deeply with our human experience.  In this class, we will map out the steps of the storyline with film clips, poetry, and discussion.  You’ll gain a richer appreciation for the timeless beauty of these stories and an eager eye for variations yet to come.
