It's mainly possible to map Joseph Campbell's notions of archetypes onto it because Campbell is a hugely overrated bullshitter whose criteria for seeing resemblances between the myths out of which he builds his "archetypes" amount to "I say so." (I'm not kidding: the brave should try struggling through his The Masks of God: Primitive Mythology sometime.)
Try reading Campbell's The Mythic Image. He produces more evidence than, simply, "I say so."

And I'll definitely give The Masks of God a read.
