Abstract: 

The present paper aims at measuring the possibility of comparison between the monomyth (Hero's Journey) of Joseph Campbell with the story of Sheik Sanan in Mantiq-ut-tayr by Attar. According to Campbell, the journeys of all the protagonists can be explained in three basic and main pivots including Departure, Initiation and Return, which in turn can encompass 15 minor stages. This research, comparing each part of the story with one of the pivots of Campbell’s model, analyzes it considering Jungian archetypes. Therefore, a stepwise investigation of the story of Sheik Sanan emphasizing on the major and minor pivots of the model of the monomyth, Hero’s Journey, constitutes the main body of the paper. The conclusion confirms that Campbell’s claim based on the existence of a major and final model for the journeys of all the protagonists, even in the area of mystical literature, is acceptable and can be analyzed. The points of difference are rare in this comparison and are mostly seen in the ordering of the sub-models
