Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The udated and revised third edition provides new insights and observations from Vogler's ongoing work on mythology's influence on stories, movies, and man himself. The previous two editons of this book have sold over 180,000 units, making this book a 'classic' for screenwriters, writers, and novelists.

Book News Annotation:

This edition of the well-known text on the connection between mythology and storytelling contains a revised chapter on the Star Wars series, new illustrations and diagrams, and new chapters (presented in the appendices) on life force operating in stories, the mechanism of polarity in storytelling, the wisdom of the body, catharsis, and other concepts. The book is meant for all types of writers and outlines guidelines for plot and character development, focusing on character archetypes and the stages of a "hero's journey," drawn from Jungian psychology and the mythic studies of Joseph Campbell. Vogler uses movies to give examples throughout. He is a story consultant for Hollywood film companies and teaches filmmakers and writers around the world.

Maja Ramirez, September 26, 2015 (view all comments by Maja Ramirez)
Drawing on Joseph Campbell's The Hero with a Thousand Faces, The Writer's Journey expands on the many common themes that resonate with almost everyone.

My early attempts at screenwriting often felt flat, but I never knew why. Having read The Writer's Journey once through (but carefully), I can see where my mistakes lay,
and so have been dusting some old works off and making them come alive.

If you want to write a great story of an kind, this is THE go-to book for whatever guidelines you might need - or might not have realized was needed.
