Joseph Campbell’s 1949 The Hero with a Thousand Faces frames the classic pattern inherent to the ‘Hero’s Journey’- a trope utilized in narratives that cross time and location. Termed Monomyth (borrowed from a line in Joyce’s 1939 Finnegan’s Wake), Campbell breaks down such narratives into three distinct and fleshed out sequences:  Separation/Departure, Initiation, and Return.
