The Hero’s Journey

April 10, 2011

Prince of the Wind, VM Jones

Okay, so there’s a quest and it may seem obvious, but certainly The Serpents of Arakesh makes me think of The Hero’s Journey

“[T]he hero’s journey outward into the world of action and events eventually requires a journey inward – if the hero is to grow – and ultimately necessitates a journey homeward – if the hero is to understand his or her grail or boon and is to share it with the culture at large.[1]

FURTHERMORE, “[h]ome is often the literal home from which the hero sets out, but more significantly, it is a state of mind or a way of seeing not possible before the hero departs.[2]

He brings back the healing potion… What boon does he receive? How does Adam grow along the way? What does he learn about himself and others during the course of his quest to Karazan with the other 4 children?
