The Rebirth of the Hero

Go to the Resource

In a work of wide-ranging scope and insight, Le Grice analyzes myths, religious texts, and scenes from a number of popular films–Jason and the Argonauts, Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, and more–to illuminate the archetypal stages and themes of the hero’s journey, helping to make the deepest of transformative experiences more readily intelligible to us all.
