Department of English and Comparative Literature What is a Bildungsroman? In my examination, I will attempt to answer this misleadingly simple question. The term was suggested by Friedrich von Blanckenburg's discussion of Bildung in his 1774 "Essay on the Novel," coined by Karl Morgenstern in the 1820s, and popularized by Wilhelm Dilthey in his 1870 essay on Friedrick Schleiermacher. Therefore, when we 20th Century readers talk of the Bildungsroman, as we often do, we employ a critical lens honed in 19th Century Germany to treat a genre begun in the 18th Century.

What Makes a Hero: Joseph Campbell’s Seminal Monomyth Model for the Eleven Stages of the Hero’s Journey, Animated By Maria Popova Nearly four decades before Joseph Campbell (March 26, 1904–October 30, 1987) refined his enduring ideas on how to find your bliss and have fulfilling life, the legendary mythologist penned The Hero with a Thousand Faces (public library) — his seminal theory outlining the common journey of the archetypal hero across a wealth of ancient myths from around the world. Campbell’s monomyth model has since been applied to everything from the lives of great artists to pop-culture classics like Star Wars. This wonderful short animation from TED Ed presents a synthesis of Campbell’s foundational framework for the eleven stages of the hero’s quest — from the call to adventure to the crisis to the moment of return and transformation — illustrating its timeless potency in illuminating the inner workings of so many of our modern myths and the real-life heroes we’ve come to worship:

Gutters It seems like these days the legal spats between creators and publishers, or creators themselves are taking up all the headlines on comic websites. Gary Friedrich is being counter-sued by Marvel after failing to win a share in the rights to Ghost Rider. The Kirby and Siegel families continue their pusuits and Archie Comics is doing battle in court against its very own CEO. Seriously, at this rate there is bound to be a Law & Order spinoff show set entirely in the comics world.
