Primitive man knew life as a cycle: birth and childhood, adulthood, and death. The Hero’s Journey is similar to the primitive cycle and emphasizes the human process of growth and discovery. Myths are metaphors for this process. Recall a particular hero’s adventure as narrated by Edith Hamilton. Apply Joseph Campbell’s hypothesis concerning the Hero’s Classic Quest.
