Review:

Among his many gifts, Joseph Campbell's most impressive was the unique ability to take a contemporary situation, such as the murder and funeral of President John F. Kennedy, and help us understand its impact in the context of ancient mythology. Herein lies the power of The Power of Myth, showing how humans are apt to create and live out the themes of mythology. Based on a six-part PBS television series hosted by Bill Moyers, this classic is especially compelling because of its engaging question-and-answer format, creating an easy, conversational approach to complicated and esoteric topics. For example, when discussing the mythology of heroes, Campbell and Moyers smoothly segue from the Sumerian sky goddess Inanna to Star Wars' mercenary-turned-hero, Han Solo. Most impressive is Campbell's encyclopedic knowledge of myths, demonstrated in his ability to recall the details and archetypes of almost any story, from any point and history, and translate it into a lesson for spiritual living in the here and now. --Gail Hudson

From the Back Cover:

"The symbols of mythology and legend are all around us, embedded in the fabric of our daily lives, and the Moyers-Campbell dialogues are a welcom guide to recognizing and understanding their meanings." -- Cincinnati Post.

Book Description Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group Inc, United States, 1991. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Anchor Books ed. 198 x 127 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. The national bestseller, now available in a non-illustrated, standard format paperback edition Touching on topics from the role of heroes to Star Wars, The Power of Myth gives us the wise and witty conversation that unfurled between journalist Bill Moyers and mythologist Joseph Campbell over a six-hour PBS broadcast. Mostly conducted at George Lucas s Skywalker Ranch, this extraordinary interview 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.
