Honor of a Hero The film The Power of Myth The Heros Adventure and the tale of Sir Gawain and The Green Knight are connected in several ways I am attempting to show identity between the film The Power of Myth The Heros Adventure in which Bill Moyers is interviewing Joseph Campbell Also I read The Heros Adventure from Joseph Campbells book The Power of Myth Joseph Campbell is a famous writer of numerous books about mythology Joseph Campbell says that a hero is someone who is giving his life to something bigger than himself and who has found or done something beyond the normal range of achievement and experience Joseph Campbell says that every hero must to perform his own adventure quest journey or trials Another source is the tale of Sir Gawain and The Green Knight about Sir Gawain who was challenged by The Green Knight The Green Knight wanted to test to Sir Gawain in order to demonstrate his honor and his name as the bravest of all the knights and also purity chivalrous to rebuff the ladys sexual advances discourteously Sir Gawain had three temptations from the Lady of the Green Knight and also his fear of self-protection when he met with the Green Knight In the tale of Sir Gawain we see him acting like the hero who leaves home and through a series of adventures discovers his own abilities limitations place in society and finds out something about himself that he didnt know before Sir Gawain proves his honor by setting out to find the Green Knight a year later even though he does not know where he lives and is certain his death will come with the meeting Two important connections I see between Joseph Campbell and Sir Gawain are the trials and transformation of the hero Joseph Campbell says that typical story about the hero in every nation
