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


I think one of the absolute best stories to exemplify the Hero’s Journey is The Wizard of Oz.

Have you ever seen the movie, “Zardoz” (a compounding of “The Wizard of Oz”)? It’s the Hero’s Journey plus all the Hindu/Zen/Eastern/New-Age astral stuff, plus Nietzsche (main character kills his own God)… It’s even got Sean Connery wearing a red leather jock-strap and thigh-high boots. It’s insane.
