THE HERO'S JOURNEY (Bloom's Literary Themes)















The hero's journey, a quest that leads to self-discovery, has been central to literature since the earliest epics. Covering the role of the hero’s journey in 'Beowulf', 'The Lord of the Rings', 'Moby-Dick', 'Pride and Prejudice', and many others, The Hero’s Journey contains about 20 original and reprinted essays and critical analyses that discuss the role of the title’s subject theme in great works of literature.
