Sažetak

Frye’s seminal work on literary criticism is used as the theoretical
basis of this paper, which examines the role of Jason as the hero of the
Argonautica in light of archetypal criticism. Through a close reading
and analysis of the text of Apollonius’ Argonautica and reflection upon
Frye’s archetypal criticism as related in his Anatomy of Criticism it is
demonstrated that Jason may only superficially be identified as a hero,
as his characterization, in many instances, breaks the rules of the Greek
epic genre, this being especially evident after considering the role of
Medea in the third and fourth books of The Argonautica.
