HON 499 Spring 2022 Professor Moon's Library Instruction (Dr. Duncan): Chrisalyn

Topic in Brief

"I intend to break apart the story of Genshin Impact for analysis to determine if the Hero’s Journey is present within the game’s first Archon storyline arc. There have been other studies done concerning the Hero’s Journey within traditional folklore and mythology, and I hope to apply the same concepts to this game to see if it follows the same general storytelling structure. Additionally, I intend to briefly describe the unique techniques Genshin Impact uses to creatively portray the Hero's Journey through the medium of a video game. "

"I'm having trouble finding general information on Campbell and Vogler themselves (particularly Vogler). If you happen to find any material that has background on them in my paper, please send it my way!"

SummaryOne of the most interesting aspects of J.R.R. Tolkien’s stories, especially The Lord of the Rings is the presentation of the multidimensional characters; therefore, the complexity of interpretations concerning their actions, motives, and aims will be manifested from the beginning of the story, until the end. Following the study of a mythic hero’s adventure, initiation, and psychological aspects, the present paper focuses on the investigation of Predestinate Call to Adventure. The researcher has benefited the theories of Joseph Campbell, presented in his renowned book The Hero with a Thousand Faces and the supplementary comments of Christopher Vogler. In fact, the researcher’s motivation for the work initiated in this regard is to improve the very few previous attempts studied by others, concerning Frodo Baggins’ role as the main and the most tragic hero of The Lord of the Rings.
