The Power of Myth. Mythology, Joseph Campbell.

The Power of Myth.

New York: Doubleday, 1988. First Printing of the First US Edition. A Fine copy in a Fine clipped dust jacket. Joseph Campbell is a preeminent scholar, writer, and teacher, who has had a profound influence on millions of people--including Star Wars creator George Lucas. To Campbell, mythology was the “song of the universe, the music of the spheres.” This extraordinary book reveals how the themes and symbols of ancient narratives continue to bring meaning to birth, death, love, and war. From stories of the gods and goddesses of ancient Greece and Rome to traditions of Buddhism, Hinduism and Christianity, a broad array of themes are considered that together identify the universality of human experience across time and culture. An impeccable match of interviewer and subject, a timeless distillation of Campbell’s work, The Power of Myth continues to exert a profound influence on our culture. Item #27321
