The term "archetype" as applied to literature comes from the depth psychology of Carl Gustav Jung and refers to the inherited primordial motifs which emerge from universal and timeless human experiences. These motifs, appearing in myths, dreams, and literature, are to the psyche what instincts are to the body. Because of their universality they enable us to see a work of literature as a total form, not to be explained by partial points of view such as social, moral, or aesthetic.
