Heroes & Archetypes: Finding Websites

A guide to the resources we have on archetypes.

Bookmarked Websites

Use library’s “Search the Internet” tab for bookmarked websites.  Helpful categories for this project are Fairy Tales and Folklore.     

Especially helpful websites from these bookmarks:

Fairy Tales has Center for Story and Symbol  for info on Joseph Campbell, and SurLaLune Fairy Tale Pages for analysis of many fairy tales and symbolism.

Folklore has Encyclopedia Mythica for hero stories and Folklore and Mythology Electronic Texts for links to texts (summaries & analysis) of various stories grouped by type/theme and a directory to helpful websites.
