Miyazaki and the Hero s Journey

This re-visioning, however, avoids gender stereotyping either the boy or the girl hero. Rather, gender performance is not an issue, and being biologically male or female is not a determining factor in the journey's outcome, although the ...

This book explores anime auteur Hayao Miyazaki's films through the lens of the monomyth of the Heroic Quest Cycle. According to Joseph Campbell and other mythology researchers, the Quest is for boys and men, with women acting as either the Hero's mother or the Prize at the end of the journey. Miyazaki nearly exclusively portrays girls and young women as heroes, arguing that we must reassess Campbell's archetype. The text begins with a brief history of animation and anime, followed by Miyazaki's background and rise to prominence. The following chapters look at each of Miyazaki's films from the perspective of the Heroic Quest Cycle, with the last section outlining where Miyazaki and other animators can lead the archetype of the Hero in the future.

The purpose of this publication is to indicate that Xhosa iintsomi (folktales) are structured in such a way that many links or commonalities emerge when a comparison between tales is made. Orally transmitted literary forms had to endure much prejudice and were often not considered worthy of study. However, in many different cultures all over the world, the concept of oral literature and its functioning still exists. There are various forms of oral literature, but one of the best known is the folktale. Folklorist and formalist, Vladimir Propp (1895?1970), aimed to describe the story structure of Russian folktales according to a linear sequence of the acts of the characters. Using one hundred folktales, he illustrated how the storylines of these tales are remarkably similar ? identical actions are often performed, only by different characters. The somewhat surprising and obvious links between Propp?s material and Xhosa iintsomi prompted the choice of Propp?s model as the departure point for this comparative study. Forty?five Xhosa folktales were chosen because of their literary quality and suitability to Propp?s methodology as a tool to organise the Xhosa data on the grounds of structural features that characterise this genre.

This seminal work by the renowned Russian folklorist presents his groundbreaking structural analysis of classic fairytales and their genres. One of the most influential works of 20th century literary criticism, Vladimir Propp’s Morphology of the Folk Tale is essential reading for anyone interested in examining the structural characteristics of fairytales. Since it first appeared in English in 1958, this groundbreaking study has had a major impact on the work of folklorists, linguists, anthropologists, and literary critics. “Propp’s work is seminal…[and], now that it is available in a new edition, should be even more valuable to folklorists who are directing their attention to the form of the folktale, especially those structural characteristics which are common to many entries coming from different cultures.”—Choice

Excerpt from Boy and Girl Heroes Down the broad stairway of the palace came a tall, fair-haired maiden of about fifteen years. She wore a gown of rich velvet, and a cloak of royal ermine hung from her shoulders. Upon her head was a net of gold set with pearls, and many jewels glittered at her throat. She was the Lady Elizabeth, Princess of England. As she joined the group of young girls awaiting her, she noticed a strange horse tied beside the King's at the foot of the terrace. "Whose steed is that?" she asked. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

'Brown Baby is a beautifully intimate and soul-searching memoir. It speaks to the heart and the mind and bears witness to our turbulent times.' - Bernardine Evaristo, author of Girl, Woman, Other How do you find hope and even joy in a world that is prejudiced, sexist and facing climate crisis? How do you prepare your children for it, but also fill them with all the boundlessness and eccentricity that they deserve and that life has to offer? In Brown Baby, Nikesh Shukla, author of the bestselling The Good Immigrant, explores themes of sexism, feminism, parenting and our shifting ideas of home. This memoir, by turns heartwrenching, hilariously funny and intensely relatable, is dedicated to the author’s two young daughters, and serves as an act of remembrance to the grandmother they never had a chance to meet. Through love, grief, food and fatherhood, Shukla shows how it’s possible to believe in hope.
