* TheMentor: The "sage" of the golden age is this to all humanity, teaching the societies all they need to know, from heavenly mysteries to trade and politics.

* ViveLaRevolution: The poem in both versions. The hints on social freedom as well as existential and spiritual freedom are prominent, and the emergence of christianity is treated as similar to a radical social movement with republican leanings, intended to overthrow the old regime.

* {{Archetype}}: Ohebiel certainly counts, being the wise female counterpart of the ambitious Abiriel (The Anima). And since Phun-Abiriel is split, Abiriel is arguably the ShadowArchetype of the Phuniel/Abiriel pairing. Thus, we have the Anima and the Shadow. Both of them join to form aspects of the human soul. [[FridgeLogic And Carl Jung was not even born]].

* ConvenientlyClosePlanet: Abiriel`s original home planet, seen from his position hovering above the newly created Earth. Since he states it "glowes in red", we have to assume the planet is {{Mars}}, with all the astronomical speculations involved.

* PowerBornOfMadness: Abiriel laments his lack of power. He considers going mad, because the lack of reason will give him the power he needs.



** This trope is also discussed by Abiriel early on. He argues that if he let his mind go, he would think he had all the power he wished for, not restrained by reason at all. In other words: ''With great insanity comes great power'' (a literal inversion).

** Akadiel has one, later some prophets, and in the end Jesus. Akadiel's speech is verging on {{awesome}}, and literal to boot, as it is designed to wake the slumbering humans to their life on earth: "Human, Awaken!" is his first greeting.

The "poem", which is quite a {{door stopper}}, tells the tale of humanity and its relation to God and the higher celestial beings, beginning with creation as told by Literature/{{the Bible}}, and walks through human history, the emergence of kings, nobles and clergy, and putting in some juicy social criticism on the way. After this, he presents "lights in the darkness", the philosophers and several doctrines, before going straight to {{Jesus}} and his life. This ends as expected, and Wergeland goes on to explore the growing Christian movement, and how it is hijacked by {{the powers that be}}, to be just another instrument of power. The ending of ''man'' shows the disillusioned poet sitting on a hill Easter morning. He is confronted by the highest being, [[MessianicArchetype Akadiel]], who shows him the intended way for humanity to go. The poet wakes up consoled, admitting that it will all turn out alright.

* RousseauWasRight: The work is justified on this. Wergeland was brought up on the principles of Rousseau, so the book ''is'' this trope in many respects. Subverted because the work clearly states that Humanity needs the presence of Ohebiel to make things work. With Abiriel alone on the world scene, HobbesWasRight.
