A Hero’s Journey: Hamlet and Simba What images come to mind as you reflect on your childhood? Playgrounds, blackboards, and soccer balls may be among the warmest of memories. Yet for many mermaids swim their thoughts, princesses get swept of their feet, and lions roar to their loyal place in the animal kingdom. There is no doubt that today’s entertainment has most of its touch using classical influences. Walt Disney has produced animated films that have captured the heart and imagination of audiences of all ages around the world through the magic of storytelling and imagery. Many of us appreciate the imagination and magic that Disney puts into its animations with out knowing they are based off of classical and traditional storylines
Josie Channel Mr. Wilcoxon English Composition I November 4, 2014 The Hero’s Journey There are many steps of “The Hero’s Journey”. The first step of The Hero’s Journey is the ‘Ordinary World’. The ‘Ordinary World’ allow us to get to know the Hero and identify with him before the Journey begins. This step refers to the hero 's normal life at the start of the story.
The hero’s journey spreads from old pieces of literature to recent ones like The Odyssey to new pieces of literature like the hunger games. Two examples of steps from the Hero’s Journey in modern books and movies are “the refusal of the call” and “Crossing the initial Threshold” in the scene when Simba leaves pride rock when scar kills Mufasa in the film The Lion King, directed by Roger Allers and Rob Minkoff, and in the scene of the movie 42, directed by Brian Helgeland, Jackie Robinson decides to join the majors even though he will face discrimination and once he is in he can’t back out of it.
A Hero 's journey is someone who has gone through a rough or tough time in their but had completely turned it around. An example of a hero 's journey is in the Odyssey. When Odysseus was shipwrecked on the island of Ogygia. Odysseus was stuck on the island for seven years and lost all hope in returning to Ithaca. This was the lowest point in his life. But twenty years later he had finally returned home disguised as a beggar but later reveals his identity.

My life has always been a series of transitional phases that was as every-changing as the seasons themselves. The words of my literary heroes were my utmost comfort; they inspired my confidence and my character, and moved me to be a more visceral, understanding person. I believe that during my time I have been wizened, and connected to the roots of all humanity; in my imagination I see it as the growth of a sampling into the dampness of the earth and the jaded formation of rough bark. Ralph Waldo Emerson, whose transcendental views have inspired me, was once quoted as saying, “Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen.” I believe that is true, and with every choice I’m reminded of that hopeful and assertive message.
Aspects A quester or someone who goes on a quest in the story. A place for the hero to go to accomplish his task. A reason for going there (usually a item or some sort) this gives the hero a purpose for his quest.
Journey is the pathway to growing up. It is the feeling when you look up in the car after being on the road for a few hours and discover you are back home, the place you’ve been longing to get back to all week.

Everyone has their own adventure(s) in life and so everyone obviously has their own definition of what a Hero's Journey is. All journeys, however, include a majority of the same stages; from slaying dragons, both literally and figuratively, following one's bliss and going into the belly of the beast. Before we go any further, let me explain what the Hero's Journey even is. The Hero's Journey is a series of events that Joseph Campbell studied and first identified as a journey that all people go though. The pattern of the events appears in not only works from all ends of the literary spectrum including drama and myths, but is also linked to psychological development and self-growth. This journey applies to fictional characters, of course,
Let me tell you a short story about this boy. It was 9 o'clock in the afternoon when his parent asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up, he said with enthusiasm "I want to be a doctor", not knowing what it is. After that we just
