    • E.

      Crossing the Threshold of no return

    Correct Answer
    D. The meeting with the Goddess
    Explanation
    The meeting with the Goddess is not part of the "Departure" portion of the Myth form. The Departure portion typically includes the Call, the refusal of the call, the Belly of the Whale, and Crossing the Threshold of no return. The meeting with the Goddess is usually part of the "Initiation" portion of the Myth form.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    In the "Departure" portion of myth form, there is a portion called "Crossing the Threshold." What does this mean?

    • A.

      It is where the hero struggles to decide if he will turn back.

    • B.

      It is the point in the story when the hero can no longer return to his original life.

    • C.

      It is when the Hero receives supernatural aid.

    • D.

      It is when the Hero becomes truly a hero.

    Correct Answer
    B. It is the point in the story when the hero can no longer return to his original life.
    Explanation
    The "Crossing the Threshold" portion in the "Departure" stage of the myth form refers to the point in the story where the hero is faced with a decision to continue forward or turn back. This is significant because once the hero crosses this threshold, they can no longer go back to their previous life. It marks a crucial turning point in the hero's journey, where they leave behind their familiar world and embark on a new path towards their ultimate goal.

    The "Initiation" portion of the Myth Form typically involves various stages of the hero's journey. Meeting the Goddess, Road of Trials, and Making up with the father figure are all common elements of this phase, representing different challenges and experiences the hero goes through. However, "The Belly of the Whale" is not part of the initiation stage. It is actually a separate stage called "The Ordeal" where the hero faces a major obstacle or death-like experience, usually before the initiation phase.

This assistance from outside forces is known as the "Rescue from Without," which aids the hero in their return and ensures their safe passage back to the ordinary world.

    Explanation

The Hero archetype represents a courageous and noble protagonist who embarks on a journey or quest.

Both the Hero and the Byronic Hero are commonly found in literature and other forms of storytelling, making them archetypal character types.
