    Abstract

    This dissertation explores and discusses how four of the psychological Archetypes identified by psychologist Carl Gustav Jung repeatedly appear in a range of fairy tales and myths from various sources around the globe. Each chapter provides an in-depth evaluation of not only the use of a particular archetype in the crafting of a fairy tale, but also how the traditional parameters of the archetype may be twisted for the sake of the plot. I analyse several examples of both well-known and lesser known fairy tales and myths, many drawn from the colourful saga of Norse mythology, as well as my own creative artefact.
