    Buffy and the Heroine's Journey SC (2012) 1-1ST

    1st printing. By Valerie Estelle Frankel. The worlds of Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, and other modern epics feature the Chosen One, an adolescent boy who defeats the Dark Lord and battles the sorrows of the world. Television's Buffy the Vampire Slayer represents a different kind of epic - the heroine's journey, not the hero's. This provocative study explores how Buffy blends 1990s girl power and the path of the warrior woman with the oldest of mythic traditions. As she sacrifices her life for the helpless, Buffy experiences the classic heroine's quest, ascending to protector and queen in this timeless metaphor for growing into adulthood. Softcover, 6-in. x 9-in., 236 pages, B&W.
