THE HEROIC MONOMYTH

The heroic monomyth (also known as the Hero's Journey) describes the common stages of a hero's journey found in many stories. Joseph Campbell first described the monomyth in 1949 in his book The Hero with a Thousand Faces. Campbell believed its basic structure could be identified in stories across both time and cultures, and we can see this archetypal structure in contemporary stories and movies such as The Matrix, Star Wars, The Hunger Games, and The Lord of the Rings. The protagonists in these stories go through the same stages: Departure, Initiation, and Return.
