Project #44968 - Contemporary Hero’s Quest Presentation

 

Create a 10- to 15-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation about a contemporary hero or heroine's quest.

 

Pick a contemporary story in the form of a novel or movie that is inspired by a mythological epic or journey of a hero's quest.  Choose from one of the following:  Star Wars (original trilogy), Lord of the Rings trilogy, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, The Hunger Games (first book/movie), The Matrix (1999), or Batman Begins (2005).  


Use this website to assist in understanding the hero's journey, including certain character archetypes. http://www.divineparadox.com/arts/archetypes_on_the_path.htm

 

Identify the main character (hero)--the feat(s) he or she must execute for the benefit of society in the face of challenges. 

 

Identify the villain and describe his or her characteristics and role in the hero's quest.

 

Identify other archetypes within the story (see divineparadox link above). Briefly describe these roles in the hero's quest.

 

Identify in detail each of the steps the hero takes in the quest: separation, initiation, and return (described in the Outline attached to the right). 

 

Research the mythological and cultural origins of the story. Discuss parallels between the myth(s) and the contemporary story it inspired.

 

Analyze any mythological symbolism, metaphors, and attributes pertinent to the story. What real life elements might these items represent?

 

Discuss the conflicts between personal desires and community responsibility represented in the myth and the contemporary story. Relate these to the conflicts and choices ordinary humans struggle with. Explain why these human conflicts retain relevance through the ages.

 

Format your citations and references consistent with APA guidelines.  Make sure to include comprehensive speaker notes.  Speaker notes should explain the images and bullet points that you include on the slides, and the speaker notes would serve as the "script" during your presentation.  Since I cannot hear you present this information, make sure that your speaker notes cover all of the information that you would want to present in a face-to-face presentation.
