    unconscious of every person's mind. The archetype of the hero is one of them. The middle of Oedipus the King shows the character Oedipus as the Jungian archetypal hero and sacrificial scapegoat. In order to understand Jung's theory of archetypes, the reader must first have an understanding of the reasoning behind them. Carl G. Jung explains the conscious mind by dividing it into three different psyches: the ego, the personal unconscious, and the collective unconscious. The ego is simply Jung's interpretation of the conscious mind. The personal unconscious is anything that is not presently conscious, but can be. The collective unconscious is a reservoir of human experiences that is passed from generation to generation. It includes the archetypes of self, which are archetypes for different kinds of people or characters in literature (Jung 67). They can be described as things such as déjà vu, or love at first sight. It is the feeling that what is being felt or experienced has been felt or experienced before. Jung describes the hero as an "archetype of transformation and redemption," (Guerin 163). The character of Oedipus is a concrete example of Jung's hero archetype. Jung says that the hero archetype first goes through the "quest" to become a hero. The "quest" of the hero in Jungian theory is described as a "long journey in which the hero is encountered with impossible tasks, battles with monsters, solves unanswerable riddles, and overcomes insurmountable obstacles…

    "The courtship of Benedick and Beatrice has a beautiful observed reality, a poise and maturity, a refreshing humour which makes the operatic main plot seem absurdly unreal." It is clear that Beatrice and Benedick are in love from the first we see of them; it is not simply through the Prince's intervention that the seeds of love are sown between them. When Beatrice is informed that Don Pedro and his party are coming to Messina, her first thought is for her 'Senior Mountanto'. Within four spoken…

    Love at first sight between two humans is almost unheard of, other than fairy tales, but a love between a human and an inanimate object is a much more common thing, such as a very nice car or a big, expensive house. I’m sure even though his mother and grandmother treated him poorly they still loved him, but I was curious how family love and love in a relationship differed. Sometimes it can be the same, in the circumstance that a family is started with a relationship. My dad met my mother, which…

    “Love at First Sight” “Is Love at first sight realistic” and “are soulmates real,” are questions that are not fully answered and are still questioned by science. Imagine that your soul mate, or if you don’t believe in them, the person you’re “destined” to be with has crossed paths with you manifold times before finally, formally meeting them. Ironic is it not? Fate is supposed to bring the two individuals together, yet the first time you informally meet, if it ever comes into being, you may…

    Love is a game that many will play, but few will win. Love is simply a risk that has to be taken to proceed to the next step, even though someone may have to suffer the heart break and disappointment when the first step has failed. In Shakespeare’s The Tempest two individuals become over taken by the luminous thought of love at first sight. Even though the love may seem too quick to last forever it shows deep connections between the two young adults that could last a life time. Throughout the…

    Does love at first sight exist? Love at first sight is like hate at first sight. Is it possible to hate someone without even talking to them? It doesn't seem so, then what makes love the exception? Love at first sight might be attraction, but not fondness. The person might seem like they are something, when they are not. You judge them and then are disappointed when it is revealed that they are not how they look like. It is like judging a book by its cover and then we get disappointed because…

    I believe love at first sight is not possible. When a person thinks that they've fallen in love at first sight, they are just in love with the idea or image of the person. The first thing a person sees is the looks, you can't see their personality. They don't hold a sign with everything about them on it. In "Romeo and Juliet" the lovers believed they were so in love that they even died together. But Romeo got over Rosaline by thinking that he loved Juliet. Juliet was a girl who was pure to the…
