Archetypes play a role in many myths and epics throughout the world. They are also used in contemporary poetry and fiction - as well as in movies.
Please look at the list of Archetypes that Caroline Myss put together: http://www.myss.com/library/contracts/determine.asp
Pick two or three archetypes from the list that you find particularly interesting. Think about them - and try to imagine they are real people.
Write a story or a poem - or anything else you wish - in which your chosen archetypes interact with each other and see what happens :)
Read the quotations from Carl Jung's work about archetypes and think about the topic of archetypes in connection with our course topic.
Feel free to do this in a creative way.
Read Northrop Frye's Essay "Archetypal Criticism - Theory of Myths" and discuss its relevance of the self.
Again, you are welcome to use a creative approach!
Find a poem or story or movie or other creative work (art, music, dance, etc) that is based on one (or more than one) particular archetype and tell us more about it!
This is meant to be fun! Please enjoy!
