Opera 3, Siegfried presents the hero's journey. The Jungian interpretation of a hero's journey is the development from to true adulthood. From boy to man or the "hero as adult child", as The Ring of Power puts it.David gives his take on "adult children" and personal responsibility and gives an extended summary of Siegfried's hero's journey, including his dwarven foster parent Mime, interference of his grandfather Wotan, and Siegfried's romantic connection to the Valkyrie Brunhilde.
This episode is a short summary of the journey of Siegfried, but I believe will give helpful context as Shawn and I return to our deep dive on the Saga of the Volsungs and explore in depth the images and symbols related to the journey of Sigurd the Dragon Slayer.
Acknowledgement to Jean Shinoda Bolen's book 'Ring of Power' as the inspiration for this 4 part series.
