The Hero with a Thousand Faces in Yaşar Kemal's Çukurova Trilogy : the Other Face of the Mountain

A. Clare BRANDABUR

Öz


Joseph Campbell's classic work, The Hero With A Thousand Faces, traces the archetypal pattern of the hero from obscure origins, the call to adventure, the crossing of the threshold, encounter with dark forces, the winning of a boon, the re-crossing of the threshold, the re-entry of the ordinary world and the hero's re-integration with his community. The present paper traces this pattern in the Triliogy of Yaşar Kemal entitled The Other Face of the Mountain, following the hero Tashbash through the various phases of this archetypal-heroic journey.
The presence in Yaşar Kemal's work of these universal patterns embodied in highly original and brilliant prose makes it clear that this Turkish novelist belongs among the great authors of world literature.
