My favorite hero that we talked about is William Wallace. I have always loved the movie Braveheart, and think that William Wallace encompasses aspects of many different types of hero. He is a folk hero, a soldier, and an anti-hero in many ways and can relate to almost all the other heroes we discussed. I also like the fact that he is a combination of brain an braun. Whereas many heroes are revered for one aspect (Oedipus had his mind, Achilles was a great warrior) William Wallace was both a great warrior and well educated. His whole story from start to finish follows the idea of a monomyth perfectly.

In the first blog I talked about Monk as a hero. After reflecting on this I still believe he is a hero. Though he always suffered from OCD, it did not become debilitating until his wife died. His early life accounts for the hyper attentiveness that he possesses, and he is often able to overcome his fears to carry out his task. Monk is a cultural hero because he is only really known in the culture of San-Francisco. Though there are certain aspects of the perfect monomyth that are missing from Monk’s story, all in all he follows a hero’s path.
