1: Autumn term: A study of the Argonaut’s journey to find the Golden Fleece.
2. Spring and Summer term: Odysseus’ challenges to find his way home from the war in Troy, via Magic Islands and The Underworld.
We shall use Joseph Campbell’s ‘Hero’s Journey’ as our model, with reference to Jung’s ‘Journey’ archetype. We shall also look at the role of women in these stories. A small group, preference will be given to those who have previously attended the Study of Fairy Tales, or who have some knowledge of the work. Students need to be prepared to commit to regular attendance.
