About This Book
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
