Mythology

On Joseph Campbell's final lecture tour before his passing, people in the audience, enchanted by what they had heard, wanted to know more about the man and how he became who he is. The Hero's Journey—both the film and the companion book containing additional material—sheds light on one of the greatest mythologists of the twentieth century. In conversations with anthropologist Angeles Arrien, poet Robert Bly, Doors drummer John Densmore, psychiatric pioneer Stanislov Grof, and others, Campbell reflects upon topics ranging from romance and marriage, to art, ritual, metaphor, transcendence, and the origins and purpose of myth. "Myths have to do with how you live your life," he said. Readers will journey along with Campbell as he explores our mythic traditions and follows his bliss.
