“A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man.”
This is a quote from the intro the book The Hero with a Thousand Faces, written by Joseph Campbell and published in 1949. It’s all about the Monomyth , the repetition of the same type of myth from various cultures throughout history. You can google all that stuff. I haven’t actually read the book yet, I just found out about it but I am considering making it my weekend read starting in about an hour. Perhaps you should do the same. Here’s your link to a free online pdf version off the book: >>> http://vymena.grimoar.cz/campbell-the_hero_with_a_thousand_faces.pdf <<< Enjoy. Wide eyes open. Love to all.
