Was Ray Kinsella a triumphant hero who dared to live his dreams or merely an insane lunatic who blindly followed voices that could only be heard within the confines of his mind Although either of these theories could be argued successfully the idea that this intrepid man was indeed a hero is supported by a list of characteristics that generally indicate a classical heroIn the movie Field of Dreams Ray Kinsella was introduced to the viewers as an ordinary man living an ordinary life in an ordinary town Conversely he was given the extraordinary supernatural ability to revive a number of celebrities from both the world of baseball and literature who had been dead for many years Kinsella related to common people but possessed powers that are not only uncommon but ultimately inhumanAlthough not a fool Ray Kinsella was also not invincible For example he was forced to deal with defeat and hopelessness throughout his travels Once he misunderstood a message given to him and journeyed to a place that he was not called to go to But being the bright and resourceful person he was he was not discouraged and continued to persevereRay Kinsella was called upon by forces left unknown to the viewers and himself to go on both a physical journey as well as a journey of the heart After hearing voices proclaiming If you build it they will come Ray risked the economic and emotional stability of the family he loved dearly to build a baseball field At first Ray Kinsella was highly skeptical but eventually he realized the significance of his obscure calling Upon the completion of the baseball field Shoeless Joe Jackson the baseball player who had been his fathers hero before he passed away suddenly appeared in the field to talk with Ray and to play baseball As the plot progressed Ray continued to receive messages After each new message Ray was called upon to further his journey
