Calls Chesterton’s The Man Who Was Thursday a modern fantasy “that can effectively serve as an example of a true modern myth as seen through” Campbell’s journey of the hero. The “novel contains many of the structure elements and conventions” of Campbell’s monomyth while providing the reader “some particularly modern insights.”
