The Power of Myth

This title launched an extraordinary resurgence of interest in Joseph Campbell and his work. A preeminent scholar, writer, and teacher, Joseph Campbell 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 title 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.

Myths to Live By (The Collected Works of Joseph Campbell Book 1)

Joseph Campbell famously compared mythology to a kangaroo pouch for the human mind and spirit: “a womb with a view.” In this title he examines all of the ways in which myth supports and guides us, giving our lives meaning. Love and war, science and religion, East and West, inner space and outer space, Campbell shows how the myths we live by can reconcile all of these pairs of opposites and bring a sense of the whole.

Oriental Mythology (The Masks of God Book 2)

This volume looks at Asian mythology as it developed over the course of five thousand years into the distinctive religions of Egypt, Mesopotamia, India, China, and Japan. ‘The Masks of God’ is a four-volume study of world religion and myth that stands as one of Joseph Campbell’s masterworks. On completing it, he wrote: “Its main result for me has been the confirmation of a thought I have long and faithfully entertained: of the unity of the race of man, not only in its biology, but also in its spiritual history, which has everywhere unfolded in the manner of a single symphony, with its themes announced, developed, amplified and turned about, distorted, reasserted, and today, in a grand fortissimo of all sections sounding together, irrestibly advancing to some kind of mighty climax, out of which the next great movement will emerge.”

The Mythic Dimension: Selected Essays 1959-1987 (The Collected Works of Joseph Campbell)

Provocative And Personal Writings On Mythology, Culture, And Modern Life By The 20th Century’s Foremost Interpreter And Teacher Of Myth: Gathered together here for the first time are twelve eclectic, far-ranging, and brilliant essays exploring myth in all its dimensions: its history; its influence on art, literature, and culture; and its role in everyday life. Written at the height of Joseph Campbell’s career — and showcasing the lively and learned intelligence that made him the premier writer on mythology of his time — these essays investigate the profound links between myth and history, the arts, and modern life. From psychology to the occult, from Thomas Mann to the Grateful Dead, from Goddess spirituality to Freud and Jung, these playful and erudite writings reveal the threads of myth woven deeply into the fabric of our culture and our lives.
