  2. 2. The Meaning Statement Pan’s Labyrinth differs from the original monomyth by allowing the real & fantasy worlds to interact, in order to demonstrate the inability of the heroine to simultaneously exists and answer to both worlds.

  13. 13. Differences 1. The two worlds (real & fantasy) heavily interact with each other. Where as in the traditional monomyth, the hero is stays in one world at a time. 2. Her birth home is actually the world she is called to for adventure. 3. There are ‘villain’ and ‘moral authorities’ in both world that mirror each other Villains: Captain Vidal (real) & Pale Man (fantasy) Moral Authorities: Mercedes (real) & Faun (fantasy) 4. Helpers in the fantasy cross over and help as well in the real world.

  15. 15. Discussion Questions 1. Why do you think the post WWII setting was chosen? 2. What does the film say about “Blind Obedience?” 3. In what ways do Captain Vidal & the Pale Man relate to each other? 4. Do you believe Mercedes effectively qualifies as a helper?
