Over on this post at the Archetypal Archive,I've formulated a category I term "the combative" to denote those types of narratives that emphasize the Kantian quality of "dominance."

I won't explore any of that here, but I decided that over the next week or so, I'll add four new labels that pinpoint when this quality appears within (respectively) the four mythoi of adventure, comedy, drama and irony.

I don't expect to making reference to the term within the context of reviews here; it's strictly for use on the Archive.  The four new labels will be

Combative Adventures
Combative Comedies
Combative Dramas
Combative Ironies
