Archetypes as my Favorite Story

Applying classic patterns and noticing variations on archetypal structures and themes is one way I want you to learn to read closer in this course.

As a way to practice taking a closer look at reading, you will be applying a definition of an archetypal character to a character in your favorite story.

In an essay that is 500-750 words, to what extent the character from your favorite book conforms to this classic character paradigm.
Consider the following questions:

What aspects of the definition of this archetype (according to Carol S. Pearson) does the character from my favorite text follow? Are there ways that my favorite character does not align with this definition?
What quotes can I use from the chapter on this archetype from Awakening the Heroes Within By Carol S. Pearson can I use to define this archetype?
