Rank's monograph remains the classic application of Freudian theory to hero myths. In "The Hero" the noted English ethnologist Raglan singles out the myth-ritualist pattern in James Frazer's many-sided "Golden Bough" and applies that pattern to hero myths. Dundes, the eminent folklorist at the University of California at Berkeley, applies the theories of Rank, Raglan, and others to the case of Jesus. In his introduction to this selection from Rank, Raglan, and Dundes, Robert Segal, author of the major study of Joseph Campbell, charts the history of theorizing about hero myths and compares the approaches of Rank, Raglan, Dundes, and Campbell.
