The first popular work to combine the spiritual and psychological insights of modern psychoanalysis with the archetypes of world mythology, the book creates a roadmap for navigating the frustrating path of contemporary life.

Examining heroic myths in the light of modern psychology, it considers not only the patterns and stages of mythology but also its relevance to our lives today--and to the life of any person seeking a fully realized existence. Myth, according to Campbell, is the projection of a culture's dreams onto a large screen; Campbell's book, like Star Wars , the film it helped inspire, is an exploration of the big-picture moments from the stage that is our world. It is a must-have resource for both experienced students of mythology and the explorer just beginning to approach myth as a source of knowledge.

Campbell probably relates many more myths in this book than is necessary to get his points across and that can possibly become tiresome to some readers before the book is concluded. I, by no means, would rate this as an easy read. You'll likely know within the first fifty pages if this is something you wish to absorb fully now or perhaps reserve for a later time.

Jan 06, PM. I'm not sure when this thread was started I'm new to goodreads , but I think Joseph Campbell is brilliant. It's been a while since I read this, but the concept of the underlying thread of the Hero's Journey which weaves through the stories, including the myths of people stretching as far as the eye or mind! I think when we pick up and identify these threads, it's like a wise map which we can use to help live our lives and solve our problems. Which I think is Campbell's point! The universality of this can so help you get perspective on your life - and paradoxically these journeys as we identify with them can be incredibly personal at the same time.
