The Hero's Journey: Joseph Campbell on His Life and Work (Collected Works of Joseph Campbell)

The Hero's Journey: Joseph Campbell on His Life and Work (Collected Works of Joseph Campbell) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The author of Hero With a Thousand Faces, The Masks of God series, and The Power of Myth here turns his powers of observation and analysis on his own life's journey and conveys the excitement of his life-long exploration of mythic traditions, which he called "the one great story of mankind." In conversations with poets, anthropologists, and philosophers, Campbell reflects on subjects ranging from the origins and functions of myth, the role of the artist and the need for ritual, to the ordeals of love and romance. Illustrated throughout with photographs from Joseph Campbell's family archive and with a new, revised introduction, The Hero's Journey introduces the reader first-hand to Joseph Campbell the man, his discoveries, his terminology, and his thinking.

Book News Annotation:

This much acclaimed work takes readers through Campbell's (1904-1987) personal spiritual and scholarly journey as he explores and compares mythology, religion, literature, and world cultures. The re-release celebrates what would have been the author's 100th birthday in 2004. In a brief new introduction, author and screenwriter Cousineau discusses Campbell's continuing impact on individuals from every walk of life.
