Beschreibung

Since its release in 1949, The Hero with a Thousand Faces has influenced millions of readers by combining the insights of modern psychology with Joseph Campbell's revolutionary understanding of comparative mythology. In this book, Campbell outlines the Hero's Journey, a universal motif of adventure and transformation that runs through virtually all of the world's mythic traditions. He also explores the Cosmogonic Cycle, the mythic pattern of world creation and destruction.
As relevant today as when it was first published, The Hero with a Thousand Faces continues to find new audiences in fields ranging from religion and anthropology to literature and film studies. The book has also profoundly influenced creative artists - including authors, songwriters, game designers, and filmmakers - and continues to inspire all those interested in the inherent human need to tell stories.

Sublime

Great narration, a vast scope of knowledge about myth, writing and the human persona. Difficult to get through because it's a lot to take in. Perfect in audio form, the book would take ages to read.

pompous voice actor ruins an incredible book

it is Jospeh Campbell. it is an amazing book. the performance is awful with one fella using an over played classical english voice. the change in tempo, the over pronunciation, the change in volume and the singing vowels were grating. highly annoying and couldnt finish. a real shame as i have read the book a number of times and love it.
