Some people don’t like Donald Trump. Some people REALLY don’t like Donald Trump. Some people have such a great dislike for Donald Trump, that they will assault Trump supporters leaving a rally(http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/violence-breaks-trump-rally-san-jose-prot...). But no matter you’re opinion on Trump, there’s no avoiding the fact that a lot of people don’t like him.
There has been a type of archetype in literature that I'm sure we are all greatly fond of. It creates humor, emotion and spirit as we read the story, and we become very emotional about that character. The archetype I'm talking about is actually pinpointed to a single (or two) character, and he is usually the one that is always different from the others. You see, literature's element of conflict has the characters mainly being serious and worrying about one certain situation.
I think that Haymitch is the helper archetype when compared to Athena from the Odyssey. Haymitch in the Hunger Games, was the man who trained his district’s “tributes”, Katniss and Peeta. Haymitch is the one who guides them through their many challenges in a battle to the death by sending them gifts when they are in trouble. These gifts can include food, or medicine. (The money for these are raised by the people, but Haymitch decides what goes in, and when.)
In the long since cancelled animated series “Samurai Jack”, it stars an unnamed samurai, later donning the name “Jack”, being sent forward in time by an evil being named “Aku”. The entire premise for the show is him trying to return to his own time to defeat this ultimate evil that is plaguing ancient Japan, or rather, has already lain waste to. Through his travels in the time far more different than his own, he encounters other entities with similar villain roles, however Aku is always the main antagonist. Mainly due to his being the cruel dictator. Of the future.
An archetype that I have commonly come across in reading books and watching movies is the innocent one. The innocent one aways does what’s right and they try to help others. They tend to be brave but they aren’t egotistical. All they want is to be happy and they strive to achieve this by doing what is right. They fear punishement for doing wrong and their goal is to experience life in the best possible way. The character I chose to represent this archetype was Rue from the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.
Out of all the stories ever created, Swiper, from the hit Spanish education show, "Dora", is the most evil villain. The premise of Dora is that she is always trying to go somewhere, because she's an explorer. However, Swiper usually hides in the bushes and takes Dora's stuff, even though she tells him, "Swiper, no swiping" every time. Then, Dora has to resort to pleading the audience to help her escape the ferocious fox. His relentless trickery and evil intentions make him a perfect fit for the archetype of the villain.
No matter how intriguing and unusual the ancient epic of Gilgamesh may seem at first, it is actually the archetypal tale. The journey of Gilgamesh, is able to draw the interests of many, and the relations to books in general is grand. When the epic begins, Gilgamesh establishes for himself a quest, which is an aspect of“the basic plot”. Later on, Gilgamesh’s adventures lead him to a brawl with the monster named Humbaba (another factor of “the basic plot”), creating a segway to Gilgamesh’s enormous change in personality afterwards.
Gilgamesh, the protagonist in Gilgamesh, has a few traits you should know about. One he is brave. Two, he is ambitious. Three, he is demanding. You have to pay attention to these traits because they influence his relationships with others, and his actions.
Hassan is a dynamic character. His archetype changes over the course of the story. In the beginning of the book, he is the archetypal nobody. This can be seen on page 6, where the author writes “In the eighteen years that I lived in that house, I stepped into Hassan and Ali’s quarters only a handful of times.” The author is showing that Hassan is nobody because his dad is his families servant.
The fantasy novel, the Ranger’s Apprentice by John Flanagan, is a brilliant tale which tells of a boy named Will, who is plain, but has multiple aspects which separates him from others. The aspects are unknown to Will at first, but he slowly discovers himself and develop them into traits.
