Archetypes

Ideal for a college-level children's literature class or in a story-writing unit, this presentation defines not only the archetypal characters in literature but provides ample examples from fairy tales to modern films. The slideshow discusses roles such as the hero, the innocent, the wise fool, and the destroyer, as well as the archetypal relationships between these characters. The last few slides include male, female, child, and shadow character examples for students to discuss.
