The hero; a study in tradition, myth, and drama by Raglan( Book )

51 editions published between 1936 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 1,142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

His mother is a virgin and he's reputed to be the son of a god; he loses favor and is driven from his kingdom to a sorrowful death - sound familiar? In The Hero, Lord Raglan contends that the heroic figures from myth and legend are invested with a common pattern that satisfies the human desire for idealization. Raglan outlines 22 characteristic themes or motifs from the heroic tales and illustrates his theory with events from the lives of characters from Oedipus (21 out a possible 22 points) to Robin Hood (a modest 13). A fascinating study that relates details from world literature with a lively wit and style, it was acclaimed by literary critic Stanley Edgar Hyman as "a bold, speculative, and brilliantly convincing demonstration that myths are never historical but are fictional narratives derived from ritual dramas." This new edition of The Hero (which originally appeared some 13 years before Joseph Campbell's The Hero With a Thousand Faces) is assured of a lasting popularity. This book will appeal to scholars of folklore and mythology, history, literature, and general readers as well

In quest of the hero by Otto Rank( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Quest of the Hero makes available for a new generation of readers two key works on hero myths: Otto Rank's Myth of the Birth of the Hero and the central section of Lord Raglan's The Hero. Amplifying these is Alan Dundes's fascinating contemporary inquiry, "The Hero Pattern and the Life of Jesus." Examined here are the patterns found in the lore surrounding historical or legendary figures like Gilgamesh, Moses, David, Oedipus, Odysseus, Perseus, Heracles, Aeneas, Romulus, Siegfried, Lohengrin, Arthur, and Buddha

The destruction of Lord Raglan; a tragedy of the Crimean War, 1854-55 by Christopher Hibbert( Book )

1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In March 1854 England declared war on Russia, launching one of the most unnecessary campaigns in history. A few weeks later, "the finest army that had ever left these shores" sailed from Portsmouth, gloriously clothed, splendidly confident - fated for destruction in the Crimea. Commander-in-chief of this army was Lord Raglan, a courageous and inspiring leader who, nevertheless, was soon to be pilloried by the press and abandoned by his government. With Lord Raglan as its central character, the book tells the curious story of the Crimean War as a whole with its mismanagement, rivalries, and horrors. The camp life in Turkey and Bulgaria, the landing of the Crimean shores, the charge of the Heavy and Light Brigades at Balaclava, the frantic, nightmarish battle in the mist at Inkerman, the long and desperate winter, the final assaults - all are described with the clarity, perception, and dramatic power for which Christopher Hibbert is rightly well known. In the words of Lord Birkenhead in his review in The Bookman of London, "It is the great merit of THE DESTRUCTION OF LORD RAGLAN that the author, while observing impeccable scholarship throughout, has given us a work as gripping and terrible as the chapters on Borodino in WAR AND PEACE from which one rises charged with torturing emotions. Such is the vivid power of the narrative and so keen the author's visual sense that the reader feels he is present as the terrible battle of Alma is fought, and hears the screams on the scaling ladders at Sebastopol. Wonderful too, is his evocation of the scents and scenery of this strange land, excruciating his description of the suffering o the troops." Extensive research from masses of family and official papers, diaries, letters and reports from England, France and Russia result in a book of remarkable power and subtlety - exciting and thorough, authoritative and vivid. -- from dust jacket
