HERO'S JOURNEY by Joseph Campbell

by: Joseph Campbell




While the writings of Joseph Campbell are rarely daunting, truth be told he was an academic and they are serious and relatively heavy works. This on the other hand is the essential companion to his own books, an oral history of his rich life, presented in the form of dialogues and conversations, and full of photographs of influential artworks, illustrative images and encounters between Campbell and other significant figures like George Lucas and Robert Bly. Along with his TV series The Power of Myth, I can’t think of a better introduction to this great teacher who has so much influence over our inner cultural lives today.
