But what is a hero? And how has the concept of the hero changed over time?

In his book Heroes Moving Beyond the Mythology, author Philip Nel argues that the hero is an evolving figure that has been constantly reshaped to reflect the values and beliefs of the society in which it exists.

Nel traces the evolution of the hero from the ancient Greeks to the present day, showing how the hero has been used to represent everything from the ideals of chivalry to the power of the individual.

Nel argues that the hero is not simply a static figure, but rather a dynamic one that is constantly being redefined and reimagined.

This is a fascinating and thought-provoking book that will appeal to anyone interested in the history of literature, film, or television.

The Ancient Hero

The ancient hero was a figure who was larger than life. He was often a demigod or a god, and he possessed extraordinary strength and courage.

The ancient hero was often called upon to perform great deeds, such as slaying monsters or rescuing damsels in distress.

The ancient hero was a symbol of strength and power, and he was often looked up to as a role model.

The Medieval Hero

The medieval hero was a different kind of figure. He was often a knight or a nobleman, and he was more likely to be known for his piety and his loyalty than for his physical strength.

The medieval hero was often called upon to fight for his country or his lord, and he was expected to be brave and honorable.

The medieval hero was a symbol of chivalry and virtue, and he was often looked up to as a model of how to live a good life.

The Modern Hero

The modern hero is a more complex figure. He is no longer a demigod or a knight, but rather an ordinary person who has done something extraordinary.

The modern hero is often called upon to fight for justice or to make a difference in the world.

The modern hero is a symbol of hope and inspiration, and he is often looked up to as a role model for how to make a difference in the world.

The Hero's Journey

The hero's journey is a common motif in literature, film, and television. The hero's journey typically follows a pattern of:

  1. The call to adventure
  2. The refusal of the call
  3. The meeting with the mentor
  4. The crossing of the threshold
  5. The trials and tribulations
  6. The death and rebirth
  7. The return with the elixir

The hero's journey is a metaphor for the journey that we all take through life. It is a journey of self-discovery and personal growth.

The Hero in Literature, Film, and Television
