In this website, HeroQuest Adventures, Joseph Campbell’s literary pattern of the “Hero’s Journey” is examined through interactive explanations of each stage. Joseph Campbell was a world famous mythologist who popularized the universal story pattern, the ‘Hero’s Journey’, defining it as the underlying archetypal structure of every story ever told. It is important to note that the Hero’s Journey was argued to be applicable to all stories, even our own. Through his work as a Professor of Literature with specializations in comparative American folklore at Sarah Lawrence College for thirty-eight years, Joseph Campbell had extensive knowledge and background to be considered an expert in literary patterns. Although there is no argument presented, this website is great in explaining both the different steps that make up the Hero’s Journey and also providing an outline of how it can be applied to daily life. As a source, I will be using this website as a learning resource for my personal contextual understanding of the Hero’s Journey and its practice. Joseph Campbell’s book, A Hero With a Thousand Faces,  is considered to be one of the most influential books of the 20th century. It is not only about storytelling but also movie making. Chris Vogler’s practical guide explains that although Joseph did not discover the individual steps in the quest pattern, he was the person that recognize these ideas and created the structural pattern we recognize today. This guide discusses Campbell and how storytelling follows the same pattern that he called the ‘hero myth’ or ‘monomyth’. Volger explains how Joseph Campbell based his book off of Carl Jung’s, a Swiss psychologist that used to teach Campbell, idea of ‘archetypes’ repeating constantly. This book also discusses Carl’s influence in how he believed that the archetypes are reflections of the human mind, and that our mind develops these characters to play out the dramatic events that occur during our current lives. This is why stories based on the mythological model, always end up to be psychologically true. As a source, I will be using this guide to understand the psychology of Campbell and the Hero’s Journey. In this website, Psychologists World, Carl Jung’s psychological work, specifically on different archetypes and psyche, are discussed. Carl Jung worked with the psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, he believed that human behaviours and personalities were caused by biological factors which Jung disagreed with. Carl Jung’s ideas on psychoanalysis look at the areas of the human mind that create a person’s psyche and the influence they have on one another. He felt that conflicts, such as anxiety, were created by the gap between subconscious and conscious. This is an important source because it provides psychological background of how Joseph Campbell rationalized each step of the Hero’s Journey. Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell worked closely, making him an important influence in Campbell’s work. As a source, I will be using this guide to understand not only how their relationship affected Campbell’s work, but to also give psychological context to the Hero’s Journey.
