Heroic

I made it to the first session this morning so I could see a paper applying Joseph Campbell's hero myth to The Hobbit. As an added bonus, I also got to experience a full-blown Oedipal reading of The Little Prince. I felt like I was reading The Pooh Perplex! The strange part is that I found both presentations useful, despite the fact that I felt like someone driving down on Sunset Boulevard in an Amish horse and buggy. Maybe absence makes the mind grow fonder. Time to go see that paper on Kill Bill. . .
