Quantitative meter has never worked well in Germanic languages like English, but it was common in Latin, Greek, Sanskrit, and Arabic poetry.

In the latter case, the special artifact to be recovered is often jokingly called a "Mc Guffin" in popular culture tropes.This hunting quest would recurr dozens or scores of times annually, requiring positive social reinforcement for the participants lest they abandon the necessary quest.Telling stories of brave heroes who undertook such journeys to rescue their people would be a powerful mythic narrative in such societies.Eventually, the plays expanded in scope to include other Bible stories and were performed in the vernacular languages rather than Latin. Kolve question this theory, however, so students should take the argument with a grain of salt.These performances eventually may have evolved into mystery plays run by guilds, falling outside the church's control altogether. in order to save his or her people from disaster, and the narrative of that journey frequently becomes the primary plot for the work.As he sees it, in pre-agricultural societies that relied on hunting for sustenance regularly required boys and young men to undergo a similar experience to that of the hero in this motif.
