Far from home he (Patroculs) has fallen, dead in a strange land, with no quiet grave.

Alexander is from a far off land called Greece. The land began as two (Upper & Lower Egypt), with King Menes uniting the two regions at around 3,500 B. This suggestion would find an important point of rapprochement between the structuralist and psychoanalytic approaches to myth in Freud's thought. [57] Carl Jung extended the trans-historical, psychological approach with his theory of the "collective unconscious" and the archetypes (inherited "archaic" patterns), often encoded in myth, that arise out of it. [7] According to Jung, "myth-forming structural elements must be present in the unconscious psyche." [58] Comparing Jung's methodology with Joseph Campbell 's theory, Robert A.
