Today, I worked exclusively on the imagoes section of the first chapter. I found some sources–Robert Segal and Robert A. Johnson–who claim that imagoes (or archetypes) come with their own myths. This point, I think, is especially important to my thesis since I am trying to show that the characters we choose actually influence the actions we take in the future. Imagoes are not only adjectives but an entire layer of identity that overlays and informs our narrative identities.
Tomorrow I will be working on the reasoning behind choosing the novels that I have. And then I will be close to finished product of the first chapter. Couldn’t be more excited about it!
