Joseph Campbell's extraordinary bestseller, The Power of Myth is a brilliant evocation of the noted scholar's teachings on mythology—available in a non-illustrated paperback edition ideal for student use. Campbell and journalist Bill Moyers offer a brilliant combination of wisdom, wit, and illuminating conversation that launched an extraordinary resurgence of interest in Joseph Campbell and his work. To Campbell, mythology was the "song of the universe, the music of the spheres." And with Bill Moyers 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.
