Book Description:

The trappings of the Medieval Hero are woven from vibrant strands of mythology, folklore, and legend. Such Heroes speak to us in a language of adventure and wonder of the fears, burdens, and challenges we all encounter, and their glorious victories and valiant defeats still offer readers today words of hope and encouragement as we embark upon our own adventures. Archetypes endure over time, survive the demise of specific cultures, and indeed continue to flourish to the present day precisely because they tap into the dreams and nightmares shared by all humanity, the life-journey common to us all, and a more or less universal mode of human expression. The works of such authors as Tolkien, Rowling, and Riordan in many ways remain closer to this mother lode of storytelling than does most contemporary Western literature.

About the Author:

Christopher R. Fee is Johnson Distinguished Teaching Professor in the Humanities at Gettysburg College, Gettysburg, PA.
