The Hero & The Wife

The mythological hero is nearly always partly divine and partly human. The archetype represents the development of human consciousness of the divine in man. The hero is a symbol of the process of change. By his super human deeds and wisdom he achieves a transformation.

“His struggles with threatening powers, in which he is helped or encouraged by positive counter powers, results in the establishment of a new relationship between them, in our terms, the relationship between consciousness and the unconscious.”
