188 Stage Hero's Journey, Monomyth - Foreshadow of the Mentor


The 188 phase Hero's Journey (Monomyth) is the templet upon which the huge bulk of successful narratives and Film Industry blockbusters are based upon. In fact, ALL of the 100s of Film Industry movies we have got deconstructed (see uniform resource locator below) are based on this 188+ phase template.

Understanding this templet is a precedence for narrative or screenwriters. This is the templet you must get the hang if you are to win in the craft.

[The nomenclature is most often metaphorical and uses to all successful narratives and screenplays, from The Godfather (1972) to Brokeback Mountain (2006) to Annie Hallway (1977) to Godhead of the Rings (2003) to Drugstore Cowboy (1989) to Thelma and Louise (1991) to Apocaplyse Now (1979)].



a) Attempts to tap into unconscious outlooks the audience have regarding what a narrative is and how it should be told.

b) Gives the author more structural elements than simply three or four acts, secret plan points, mid point and so on.

c) Gives you a tangible procedure for edifice and releasing disagreement (establishing and achieving catharses, of which there are usually four).

d) Tells you what to write. For example, at a certain phase of the story, the focusing should be on the Call to Adventure and the micro elements within.


(simply travel to for full details)

*****Foreshadow of the Mentor*****

Often the Hero is aware of the Mentor before the existent meeting. In Bonnie and Clyde (1967), Bonnie sees Clyde beforehand. In The King of Comedy (1983), Pupkin cognizes all about Jerry.

*****Magical Gift*****

The Mentor most often supplies the Hero with a Charming Gift (In Wall Street (1987), Carl Fox simply gives Bud Fox some money). But the criteria is satisfied if the Charming Gift is simply made explicit. In Bonnie and Clyde (1967), Clyde demoes Bonnie his gun.

*****Foreshadow of the Inner Cave*****

Foreshadows are underestimated. In Brokeback Mountain (2005), Ennis showers. The sequence takes the hard roes to the Inner Cave.

*****Outer Challenge*****

A critical portion of the Hero's Ordinary Self is his (or her) Outer Challenge.

The Outer Challenge is often a merchandise (or consequence) of the Hero's Inner Challenge. In An Military Officer and a Gentleman (1982), Zach doesn't care about anyone (Outer Challenge) because no 1 have ever cared about him, a effect of his mother's self-destruction (Inner Challenge). In Titanic (1997), Rose is with Cal (her Outer Challenge) because she worries about money and position (Inner Challenge). In American Beauty (1999), Lester Burnham's Inner Challenge is to experience good about himself and this personal effects his matrimony (Outer Challenge).

*****Character Development*****

It is during Trial 2 that fictional character development happens most frequently. However, each facet of fictional character associates to Transformation on some level. In Bonnie and Clyde (1967), Bonnie declaims her poetry, which will later be published and mean Clyde's Transformation.

These may take possession of the excitations in the circle of thought thus left to itself, establish a connection between it and the unconscious wish, and transfer to it the energy inherent in the unconscious wish.. Come now, Benny--'To be or not to be. You couldn't make a better use of your water privileges, old boy! Ah, misericorde! Ah, mon dieu, je suis abime.. Here is such a dream.. Ef it hain't enough I'll tell ye. His ears were pricked forward with a brisk, sensitive smartness. The day before the contract expired Mrs.. When I first came to town I shared this sympathy, and pleased my imagination with fancying her hard struggle with the conviction that she had lost all that made life beautiful.. But they were very careful not to let him see their designs, for in spite of his sixty-eight years he could make the boldest of them uncomfortable under the steady regard of his piercing gray eyes.. Thomas in? Good-morning, sir, said the figure.. We have no portrait of him, but I see always, when I remember him, that peaceful and luxuriant palm.. Again the elder's face shone with delight.. One of the boarders christened it a Father Hubbard, and it certainly was high in the waist and full in the skirt.. Pike, who made a special contract.. The Irish girl had gone to the door when he rang the bell, and recognized in him what she called an ould friend.. The next moment she had scuttled back with her chair to her old position.. She never overlooked any of her perquisites. The Claiborne family and household followed like small boys after a circus procession.. They had a little property to begin with, a couple of hundreds of acres, and two or three negroes apiece.. We have solved the riddle of the superabundant dream content compressed within the briefest moment by explaining that this is due to the appropriation of almost fully formed structures from the psychic life...
