About the Author

Joseph Campbell was an American author and teacher best known for his work in the field of comparative mythology. In 1988, a series of television interviews with Bill Moyers, The Power of Myth, introduced Campbell's views to millions of people.

Reviews

"I have returned to no other book more often since leaving college than this one, and every time I discover new insight into the human journey. Every generation will find in Hero wisdom for the ages."
-- Bill Moyers

"In the three decades since I discovered The Hero with a Thousand Faces, it has continued to fascinate and inspire me. Joseph Campbell peers through centuries and shows us that we are all connected by a basic need to hear stories and understand ourselves. As a book, it is wonderful to read; as illumination into the human condition, it is a revelation."
-- George Lucas

"Campbell's words carry extraordinary weight, not only among scholars but among a wide range of other people who find his search down mythological pathways relevant to their lives today....The book for which he is most famous, The Hero with a Thousand Faces [is] a brilliant examination, through ancient hero myths, of man's eternal struggle for identity."
-- Time

"In the long run, the most influential book of the twentieth century may turn out to be Joseph Campbell's The Hero with a Thousand Faces."
-- Christopher Vogler
