Call for Suggestions

Hello All! Nice to meet you.

I am currently conducting research for a thesis on representations of the Hero's Journey throughout cultures and timelines, and am asking for any suggestions fellow scholars on the forum might have on stories, literature, folktales or myths that meet the traditional archetype. If anyone has a story that comes to mind, please feel free to respond to this thread or e-mail me at, and I'll gladly read into it!


I appreciate everyone's help,

Ryan Horton
