'The Sage' Archetype

Discussion by: meme2019 on Mon, 2016-06-06 08:30 with 0 comments

You see it everywhere - the Sage, a (usually) old, slightly grumpy man who preaches wisdom. In our society, what better example to use than Morgan Freeman? The beloved actor and African American rights activist who charms us all with his voice is a clear representation of the stereotypical sage, as shown in quotes such as:

"Learning how to be still,to really be still and let life happen - that stillness becomes radiance."

"But I can say that life is good to me. Has been and is good. So I think my task is to be good to it. So how do you be good to life? You live it."

Feminism (n.): the advocacy of women's rights on the grounds of political, social, and economic equality to men. In To Kill a Mockingbird, Scout not only struggles with what she feels a lady is supposed to be, but also what society views a lady as. Women have many more rights nowadays than in the ‘30’s, or any other point in history, but it is important to explore how things have changed or if they really have changed at all.

The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness is a book about Todd, who lives in Prentisstown where there is essentially no women and the “Noise”. The Noise is a germ/disease that everyone has where you can hear everybody’s thoughts like a buzz in the back of your mind. Todd is out in the forest and encounters a hole where the Noise is gone. Curious, he wanders back, entering the space and finding, shockingly, a girl. She doesn’t have Noise, and crashed her ship trying to come into Todd’s world.

My name is a jumble of last-minute thoughts and stolen details.
While I don’t know what my parents were thinking at the time, I can’t say that the title doesn’t suit me.
Megan, a name that is plain, nothing special or fancy, no odd spellings that pop out at you or things to make you approach me to ask, “wow, what an interesting name!”.
An afterthought as I was born, something quickly put together as a result of lack of ideas.
Some of you might not run into people who have your name, but for me, there are at least 3, daughters of the doctors who performed my mother’s C-Section.
