Reply To: The Hero’s Journey in Contemporary Literature/Fantasy


The A & A story is very educational towards young men.

JC described Acteaon’s bad end as being symbolic of him being unprepared to receive knowledge from the higher realms… which is cool. But perhaps you are hitting an important point too… maybe the story has a stronger element of “Watch your libido, boys, or the dogs of your passion might get you into trouble.”

one guy (Z) causes the vast majority of havoc and spill.

I resonate. I think it makes sense to approach mythology with the idea that these stories are being created and circulated at a time and place of honor culture… where men were probably more chauvinistic then they are now… So it would make sense that they create system of stories that revolve around an Alpha.
