JOSEPH CAMPBELL (1904-1987) was a prolific writer, dedicated editor, beloved teacher, inspiring lecturer, gifted storyteller, avid scholar, and a foremost interpreter of myth. Among the many books he wrote and edited, he is best known for The Hero with a Thousand Faces, his four-volume The Masks of God, and his magnum opus, Historical Atlas of World Mythology.From AudioFile:
These live lectures of Joseph Campbell offer the rare chance to hear a master teacher explain his ideas. Campbell explores the themes of love and man's relationship to God and his community, tracing a lineage from pre-Christian mythology through the Arthurian legends. As he identifies related motifs in the traditions of five continents, Campbell teaches listeners how to think about spirituality and history. He also communicates his love for his topic, breaking in on himself with suddenly remembered examples or jokes. However, the production quality of these tapes is distracting. The original recording contains many pops and squeaks, as well as jangling New Age music that interrupts Campbell in mid-thought.
