Reply To: Campbell on Writing



Carrying on with the same theme, that is, people writing about Joe Campbell and the Hero’s journey, with incomplete data. So, Hannah Yang, writes, “he (Campbell) became fascinated with the works of Sigmund Freud and Carl Jung. This was crucial to the development of hero’s journey” Firstly, he was rather bored with Freud, and secondly, his work embraced much more than Freud and Jung. Then she writes, that Campbell’s book, The Hero with a thousand faces was adapted for TV as Power of Myth!!! Huh???  Some part of  Power of Myth, Chapter 1 is from the hero with a thousand faces, the rest is based on a series of interviews with Moyers.

Here is a link to her essay.
