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 Campbells' revolutionary understanding of comparative mythology. In these pages, 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.… (mere)

    The Seven Basic Plots: Why We Tell Stories af Christopher Booker (ed.pendragon)
    ed.pendragon: Interesting to contrast Campbell's 'hero monomyth' hypothesis with Booker's Freudian interpretation of how all literature, plays and films can be judged by how they match with his identification of universal plotlines.

    Giles Goat-Boy af John Barth (tootstorm)
    tootstorm: Before Lucas, Barth was one of the first writers to intentionally take the formula for what it was: A psychological pattern we're doomed to follow and that just...well, makes sense. Why? Who cares! More overly-intellectual dick-and-fart jokes, please!

Along with Kafka, Joyce, Asimov, and Gibson, Campbell has earned himself a spot as one of the authors that have had the greatest impact on my psyche and the way I see the world. Easily one of my favourite books ever. Campbell's prose is poetic, yet succinct. He puts his points across in a beautiful way through myths and legends from all over the globe. I found that every chapter lead me down a road of epiphany and wonder, and I know for certain I'll be coming back to this book throughout my life. ( )

Campbell explores the theory that mythological stories often share a fundamental structure. The similarities between these myths led Campbell to write his book describing the structure of the monomyth. He calls the motif of the archetypal story "the hero's adventure". In a well-known passage from the introduction to The Hero with a Thousand Faces, Campbell summarizes the monomyth:

A hero ventures from the everyday world into a realm of supernatural wonder: there, fabulous powers are encountered and a decisive victory is achieved: the hero returns from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow blessings on his fellow man ( )

Campbell onderzoekt de theorie dat mythologische verhalen vaak een fundamentele structuur delen. De overeenkomsten tussen deze mythen brachten Campbell ertoe zijn boek te schrijven waarin hij de structuur van de monomythe beschrijft. Hij noemt het motief van het archetypische verhaal "het avontuur van de held". In een bekende passage uit de inleiding van The Hero with a Thousand Faces vat Campbell de monomythe samen:
Een held waagt zich vanuit de wereld van alledag naar een gebied van bovennatuurlijke verwondering: daar worden fabelachtige krachten aangetroffen en wordt een beslissende overwinning behaald: de held komt terug van dit mysterieuze avontuur met de kracht om zijn medemens zegeningen te schenken ( )

I doubt I read it all the way through, but between the Bill Moyer show and reading enough of the book to make notes, and encountering Campbell elsewhere, I have a pretty good grasp of the concept if not all of the examples. I will revisit Campbell in general to see if he still resonates 20 years later. ( )

This is a must-read for anyone telling stories. ( )

PREFACE
"The truths contained in religious doctrines are after all so distorted and systematically disguised," writes Sigmund Freud, "that the mass of humanity cannot recognize them as truth. The case is similar to what happens when we tell a child that new-born babies are brought by the stork. Here, too, we are telling the truth in symbolic clothing, for we know what the large bird signifies. But the child does not know it. ... It is the purpose of the present book to uncover some of the truths disguised for us under the figures of religion and mythology by bringing together a multitude of not-too-difficult examples and letting the ancient meaning become apparent of itself. ... Joseph Campbell, 1948
Whether we listen with aloof amusement to the dreamlike mumbo jumbo of some red-eyed witch doctor of the Congo, or read with cultivated rapture thin translations from the sonnets of the mystic Lao-tse; now and again crack the hard nutshell of an argument of Aquinas, or catch suddenly the shining meaning of a bizarre Eskimo fairy tale: it will be always the one, shape-shifting yet marvelously constant story that we find, together with a challengingly persistent suggestion of more remaining to be experienced than will ever be known or told.
