    Summary of the research paper:

    6 pages in length. One of the most prominent literary motifs of mythology is that of power and the tragic hero. Examining the fundamental interpretation of Star Wars, Episode II, the student will find that this film also struggles with the concepts of power and the tragic hero, as well. It may appear as quite contrary in nature to have two such divergent literary approaches upon which to draw the same conclusion, however, it becomes much more acceptable when one realizes that beneath all the garishness associated with heroic deeds, the protagonist is still just one being who is in constant struggle with his own existence. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

When determining who truly exercises power in an archaic society, one first must study the ancient Greeks  and what was important in their existence. Indeed, it can readily be argued that patriarchy ruled ancient Greece, inasmuch as the ancestral ties associated with the male gender were  as strong as steel.
