Joseph Campbell's summary of the monomyth.
A haiku may not seem like a hero's journey, three lines or less, 17 syllables or less (or more) there are so many variations, some even include other forms similar like senryu.
But anyone who has written a truly remarkable haiku knows the struggle over syllabic count or the new English translation of what the Japanese called 'on' or 'morae' or even content that is relevant to a potential audience.
