Heroes through the Ages Student Book


Heroes through the Ages introduces students to influential heroic figures from literature, history, society, and culture, along with the mythology that surrounds them, and the theoretical paradigms that seek to explain how we can read and write the hero's journey.

This study incorporates a variety of classic and contemporary texts including: ‘Oedipus Rex’, ‘Romulus and Remus’, ‘Odysseus and the Cyclops’, ‘Sohrab and Rustum’, ‘Goblin Market’, ‘The Man from Snowy River’, Louisa Lawson's ‘Speech to the Dawn Club’, and a variety of media texts related to the Aboriginal Australian, Truganini.
