Revue de presse

"The symbols of mythology and legend are all around  us, embedded in the fabric of our daily lives, and  the Moyers-Campbell dialogues are a welcom guide  to recognizing and understanding their meanings."  -- Cincinnati Post.

Présentation de l'éditeur

The national bestseller, now available in a non-illustrated, standard format paperback edition
 
The Power of Myth launched an extraordinary resurgence of interest in Joseph Campbell and his work. A preeminent scholar, writer, and teacher, he has had a profound influence on millions of people--including Star Wars creator George Lucas. To Campbell, mythology was the “song of the universe, the music of the spheres.” With Bill Moyers, one of America’s most prominent journalists, as his thoughtful and engaging interviewer, The Power of Myth touches on subjects from modern marriage to virgin births, from Jesus to John Lennon, offering a brilliant combination of intelligence and wit.

This extraordinary book reveals how the themes and symbols of ancient narratives continue to bring meaning to birth, death, love, and war. From stories of the gods and goddesses of ancient Greece and Rome to traditions of Buddhism, Hinduism and Christianity, a broad array of themes are considered that together identify the universality of human experience across time and culture. An impeccable match of interviewer and subject, a timeless distillation of Campbell’s work, The Power of Myth continues to exert a profound influence on our culture.

Joseph Campbell est une référence incontournable pour quiconque s'intéresse aux mythes, à l'aventure de l'humanité et à l'avenir de notre planète. Que ses livres n'aient pas été traduits en français est difficile à comprendre. Heureusement, le propos de l'auteur est limpide et compréhensible et ses ouvrages se lisent sans difficulté. The Power of Myth est même particulièrement facile à lire, puisqu'il s'agit d'une interview entre l'auteur et le journaliste de renom qu'est Bill Moyers.
Un livre passionnant à lire absolument.

En fait, c'est le format questions-réponses qui me gêne (je n'ai pas mis 2 étoiles= je n'aime pas, car cela laisserait à penser que le livre n'est pas bien). Mais je crois qu'il vaut mieux lire directement un livre sur le sujet écrit par J. Campbell. Je n'ai pas l'impression de découvrir alors que le sujet est vaste ; cela fait, et au fond ça l'est, discussion à bâtons rompus, les questions sont-elles toujours pertinentes ?... Cela dit, ce n'est pas un "mauvais" livre, il mérite, pour qui supporte le format, d'être lu, je pense.

I would recommend this book to my kids, my parents, my best & worst friends... the writer died in the 1980's and his work lives on... you can definitely feel his energy through the book. I've ordered 2 more books by Joseph Campbell, and can't wait to get my eyes on them!! Make sure you read it before you die...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Essential Reading 2 mai 2016
Par Sanderson Tattersall - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a great written version of an interview Joseph Campbell had with Bill Moyers about the theme of myth in society dating back to it's earliest days to the present. The themes of journey's and epic, but timeless stories of a hero's struggle against evil have been similar and consistent in all cultures. Despite having no contact, the peoples of the world all created stories to explain life and used myth as a medium. It is the basis of these myths that got George Lucas interested and started him in the direction of writing Star Wars. Lucas has said publicly that Campbell was a huge influence. This is a must read for any fan of Star Wars or the general themes of good vs. evil. This book will challenge you on many levels, but it is accessible to all.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Well worth the purchase and will blow your mind 1 août 2015
Par Chris W. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Simply amazing. This book has literally changed my world view and helped me strengthen my wavering level of spirituality. Regardless of your religious beliefs this book will increase your understanding of your own religion as well as help you to understand the others. The book is actually the dictation of a 7 part (one hour each) interview which can be found on youtube.

As someone with a degree in computer science with a minor in math I consider myself a fairly intelligent person and I found myself very humbled (to the point of feeling stupid) by Campbell's vast intellect. Joseph Campbell speaks with so much knowledge, wisdom and experience that I found myself having to re-read many of the passages 2 and even 3 times for me to understand and take in all he has said.

This is definitely a book that isn't light reading and I can easily see myself re-reading many times over the course of my life. I'm sure each time I will get just as much new understanding as I did my first reading. There's simply too much in this to comprehend in a single read-through (in my opinion).

I liked this book so much I just had to get more of Joseph Campbell so I bought "The Hero with a Thousand Faces (The Collected Works of Joseph Campbell)"

TLDR: Buy this book you won't regret it!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Making the genius of Campbell easy to understand 18 mars 2015
Par Robin Landry - Publié sur Amazon.com

Without their story, a culture has not future, or something like that. Joseph Campbell spent his life giving us our 'story'. Who are we, why did we come here and where are we going. We are all on a hero's journey to test if we are worthy of our home on the other side, or at least that's what Campbell found as he waded through the mass of confusing, and sometimes childlike myths that have followed us through the centuries.

I love this particular book because it's an interview between to really gifted men who respect each other, and seem to have a wonderful time just talking about what they love. It's much easier to grasp some of Campbell's concepts because frankly, he can make your head spin with his theories and concepts. This book is like being a fly on the wall while two men talk over dinner. Most of it I can understand, but I have to admit, sometimes things get a little over my head.

They were talking about life in general and Campbell says this: "I will participate in the game. It is a wonderful, wonderful opera--except that it hurts". page 81 I don't know how you can sum up life any better than that. Life is wonderful and it does hurt.

Then Campbell talks about the 'hero' which everyone one of us is. "The hero is the one who comes to participate in life courageously and decently, in the way of nature, not in the way of personal rancor, disappointment, or revenge." page 82. There you have it. To do life right, you need to be the hero and you need to be courageous and decent. Campbell wrote the book Hero With A Thousand Faces, a compilation of the mythology of the world and this is what he came up with. Screen writers use Campbell's work to outline movies because it's journey we all recognize either on the surface or down in our subconscious, and we know that we are the hero of our own journey.

"So Jesus says, Judge not that you may not be judged. That is to say, put yourself back in the position of Paradise before you thought in terms of good and evil. You don't hear this much from the pulpits. But one of the great challenges of life is to say "yea" that that person or that act or that condition which in your mind is most abominable." page 32. What I grasp from this statement is that Campbell is trying to say that we need to look at things from a higher level. A poisonous snake is not evil it just is. When you kill it to save someone, you're saying no to the situation, you're not saying that the snake is evil.

I love the genius of Joseph Campbell and this is an easy(comparatively) book to understand him and what he's trying to say without your head exploding. His opening up the world of myth makes him a hero in my book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Not only was this book somehow able to connect EVERY (I simultaneously thought about my favorite children's books 26 octobre 2015

LIFE-CHANGING! Not only was this book somehow able to connect EVERY (I simultaneously thought about my favorite children's books, classics from school, and even my absolute favorite, Harry Potter) piece of literature I have ever read, it has inspired me to read Joseph Campbell's books as I am so enthralled by the common threads in stories/myths/legends found multi-culturally. I read half the book in one sitting! I spent all day thinking about it, and told everyone I saw that they HAD TO READ IT! (I have never LOVED a book this much) While the ideas that Moyers and Campbell discuss are often multi-faceted with complicated intricacies, it's an easy read. The interview format lends itself to inductive reasoning, allowing the reader to reach their own conclusions alongside Moyers and Campbell. It's a great introduction into Campbell's life work, and I cannot wait to read and learn more.
"People say that what we're all seeking is a meaning for life. I don't think that's what we're really seeking. I think that what we're seeking is an experience of being alive, so that our life experiences on the purely physical plane will have resonances within our own innermost being and reality, so that we actually feel the rapture of being alive." - Joseph Campbell, "The Power of Myth"

5.0 étoiles sur 5 It's Joseph Campbell, for God's sake;) 12 octobre 2016
Par Thames - Publié sur Amazon.com

I don't have many regrets -- and I don't know how I grew up in the 70's without being hipped to him -- but I truly wish I had stumbled on Joseph Campbell a lot sooner than middle age. Still, reading his work has been a wonderful experience; insightful, thoughtful, rarely (if ever) pedantic.I don't think anyone can honestly say Campbell didn't "do his homework," in this day and age of memes and 140-byte snippets of wisdom. This is one of the great American scholars of all time, whose writing (probably with a great editor) helped add to my perspective of our world.
