Objective: To apply the hero’s cycle to your own life.
1. According to Joseph Campbell, many events in our lives follow the mythological hero’s cycle. We experience the three major stages of departure, initiation and return many times throughout our lives. After familiarizing yourself with the hero’s cycle as explained in our course module, please write about a person in your life – a family member, friend, etc. – who went through the hero’s cycle and write an Introductory Paragraph.
2. In the subsequent 5 paragraphs, identify and explain how the following aspects of the hero’s cycle apply to your personal hero. You’ll need to clearly indicate which part of your story is which part of the cycle…don’t assume I know.
Even though this is an informal essay, it still requires good organization and academic writing. Remember that in a Gordon Rule class one of the objectives is to communicate effectively. Please do not choose a celebrity or someone famous in any way. When you are finished, you will have a strong paper that illustrates the steps of the heroic cycle, and you will have a nice tribute to a family member or a friend that you can share with them. Two for one!!
