The Hero's Journey

What do Star Wars, Doctor Who, Franz Jaggerstatter, and the Myth of Perseus all have in common? The Hero’s Journey - the epic quest every single hero across all stories, times, and cultures, embarks upon. Joseph Campbell popularized the idea of the ‘monomyth’ - the idea that we can see one story across all legends and myths. In this episode we discuss: What makes someone a hero? What is the Hero’s Journey? We’ll explore examples as varied as Luke Skywalker, Donna Noble, and Perseus.   Visit www.onfairystories.com for links and resources!
