Every Trip Is a Quest
(Except When It's Not)

But.. What does a quest symbolize in terms of literature?
- The real reason for a quest never involves the stated reason. Instead, the real reason for a quest is always self-knowledge. Often times a questor is young...
Why?
young=inexperienced, immature, sheltered.
Think of the difference between an old and a younger man finding self-knowledge
Younger individuals have time to grow knowledge
Items b and c considered together:
Why?
Because someone usually tells the hero a place to go and what to search for when there
Note: the difference between item (c)and (e)
Because the real reason for the quest is found through the hero's self-knowledge/ fulfillment
Simba the true king of pride rock.
(a) a quester
Pride Rock
EXAMPLE
Nala tells Simba that Scar is abusing his mother and the other lionesses.
EXAMPLE:
(d)challenges and trials en route
-Simba is scared whether or not his family and followers will discredit him due to his fathers death.
-Find a way to defeat Scar and restore balance back to pride rock
EXAMPLE:
(e) a real reason to go there
Simba realizes that his father's morals and presence live through him and that it is his duty to restore balance to pride rock.
- For the purposes of carrying out his father's legacy and forgetting about the past
So... Remember the 5 aspects of a quest
and the purpose of the questers journey.




Note: The reason for a quest is always self-knowledge

Questions for Discussion:

What does Foster mean by this ideal?
Questions for Discussion:

Why or why not?
