  1. Home-Adventure-Home a technique for literary analysis

  2. First Let’s Review Some Vocabulary • External and Internal • Concrete and Abstract • Literal and Figurative • Tangible and Intangible

  3. Starting From HOME • Every single story you’ve ever read is one story: a quest. • A quest is a journey or adventure in search of someone or something. (a goal) • The protagonist, the main character, is the hero or heroine in search of something or someone. • Therefore…all stories have the same pattern or structure.

  4. It All Begins at HOME • What is home to you? • What does it look like? • What are its external characteristics? • What are its tangible, concrete characteristics?

  5. The External Home • House • Apartment • Shelter • Cardboard box • Mobile Home • Teepee • Car • Igloo

  6. It All Begins at Home • What qualities do ALL homes have in common? • Think about some intangible, abstract characteristics. • What internal characteristics does your Home have?

  7. The Internal Home • Your internal home comes with you wherever you go! • Explain why you think that is.

  9. Abel’s Internal and External Home

  10. Crossing The Threshold • When the protagonist crosses over from home. • You are crossing over into your adventure. • You choose to go over the threshold or you are ‘thrown’ into it.

  11. Abel crosses over his threshold into the unknown.

  12. The Adventure • When you cross your threshold (leave home), you begin your adventure. • The adventure is: • Unknown • Unpredictable • Uncontrolled • Has no order

  13. The Adventure • On your adventure you are: • Not safe • Not protected • Not loved • Not known

  14. The Adventure • In the adventure, the main character has his/her own experience. • Through this experience, he/she grows and acquires knowledge.

  15. The Adventure • When you begin your adventure, you must go without a parent or guardian, or it is not your own adventure. • You can be accompanied by Guides, Friends and Peers (equals) because you, alone, are still making the choices and decisions. NO ONE is ‘taking care’ of you! • Your guides can be physically with you (external) or emotionally with you (internal).

  16. Abel’s External Guide

  17. Abel’s Internal Guide

  18. The Climax • The highest point of tension. • The restatement of the protagonist’s problem. • Occurs right before we find out if the protagonist will succeed or fail.

  19. The Climax

  20. Everyone always wants to get back “home”!

  21. Home - The end point! • After the adventure, when the main character has returned home, his/her problem may NOT be solved but it is resolved. (the resolution) • He/she has changed internally and externally. (Transformation) • Changes are physical: he/she is older. • Changes are mental: he/she is wiser and gained knowledge about: • Self • Others • Society

  22. ABEL FINDS HIS WAY BACK HOME

  23. ABEL’S TRANSFORMATION • How has Abel changed externally? • How has Abel changed internally? • What he learned about society. • What he learned about others. • What he learned about himself.
