Archetype

| | Comments (0)

I read this work, acutally another spelling of it, in Keesey's chapter three introduction.

I never heard of this word before, so I became curious.

Archetype is an original model from which something is developed or made. In literary criticism those images, figures, character types, settings, and story patterns that are universally shared by people across cultures.

In Keesey's introduction it said that authors used this type of archetypal symbolism that effects unarmed readers who think they are responding to the surface level, but are really being affected by something universal.
