3 von 3 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Ignatius am 4. Februar 2014
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Many pictures illustrate Campbell's text. His ideas come across as slightly whacky, but ultimately the basic concept of the monomyth is convincingly argued, and Campbell certainly draws on a vast body of knowledge. Whether you like his style – which is eloquent, if not always simple – or not, this is entertaining and fascinating. Christopher Vogler's reworking of big bits of this book into a guideline for screenwriting seems to misrepresent certain details, which might explain why some topoi of Hollywood cinema have become clichés rather than elements of story that strike a deeper chord within us as human beings.

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I had heard and read a lot about "Storytelling", therefore I bought the book that is the foundation of everything: "A hero with a thousand faces".

As I am not very familiar with the topics Joseph Campbell worked on, this book was very hard to read for me. Without explanations from other authors and from the internet I would not be able to extract the basic ideas that have become crucial in today's marketing.

If you are a marketing specialist interested in practical storytelling, buy another book. However, if you are interested in the original, buy this one.

Humanities Scholar Writing for the Layperson 11. Januar 2010
Von P.G. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
So what is "Hero?" Campbell is a comparative mythologist, and the original title was "How to Read a Myth." While scholarly in nature, "Hero" is not a formal scholarly paper and should not be read as such. Instead, it falls in the realm of literature. Campbell was awarded the National Institute of Arts and Letters Award for Contributions to Creative Literature for "Hero." As a scholar, he was particularly proud of this fact. While the book is not necessarily an easy read, it was written for the general public. It's difficulty may account for the "snooze factor" some reviewers attribute to it. "Hero" is a broad survey of what is similar about the world's mythologies, remarkable in breadth for its length. Rather than focus on what makes us different, as most comparative religion scholars do, he chose to focus on what makes us similar. If this interests you I suggest you read it. If after you are finished you wish for more depth, I suggest you try his four volume series "Masks of God."

If you read some of the negative reviews you will get the impression Campbell tries to provide you with answers to life's great mysteries. This is false. Instead, he borrows vocabulary from a staggering variety of the world's mythologies to describe that mystery. You will also get the impression that Campbell thinks he found the one and only way to interpret mythology. This is also false. On page one of the epilogue he says, "There is no final system for the interpretation of myths, and there will never be any such thing." You may also get the impression that Campbell was a mystic or part of the New Age movement. Again, false. When asked what method of meditation he practices, he once responded, "I underline sentences." In other words, he is a scholar.

Essential Reading For Writers And Those Who Want To Know Stuff 1. November 2013
Von Maryann Madsen - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Really? I have to say why I like this book and think it deserves five stars? Campbell spent a lifetime focused on mythology and shares his insights in language the rest of us can understand. This is the book that helped us awaken to our hard-wiring for story and how those stories are told. This is the book other how-to books are based on. This is the third time I've bought this book because someone either borrows it and doesn't return it, or I read the pages thin.

Highly recommended for anybody setting out on their own journey as a storyteller, those interested in mythology and comparative religion, and those curious about how the human condition expresses itself.

A Book with a capital "B." 12. Februar 2006
Von OAKSHAMAN - Veröffentlicht auf
_First of all, I feel inadequate and unworthy to review this book, but since Amazon has given me the chance, all I can say is that this is one of the greatest Books (with a capital "B") of my experience. I suspect that it shall be recognised as one of the single greatest products to come out of 20th century American letters. No, I'm not setting Campbell up as a prophet or anything like that, indeed, I suspect that this book's greatness lies in the eternal truths that transcend Campbell's individual personality. He just managed to tap into them- thank God.

_The entire work deals with the hero's journey. This is the Monomyth shared by all cultures- and indeed seems to be a direct inspiration from the cosmos itself by way of the collective unconscious. Here we have the eternal cycle of 1) the call to adventure; 2) the crossing of the threshold; 3) the tests, trials, and helpers; 4) the sacred marriage, apotheosis (becoming one with god), or elixir theft; 5)the flight 6) recrossing/ressurection; and 7) the return to society with hard won gifts. He examines all of these elements in depth with a wealth of cross-cultural examples. The first half of the book deals with this cycle on a more individual and personal level (the microcosm), while the second half deals with the greater cosmogonic importance (the macrocosm.)

_Now, the really amazing part of all this is that virtually all of it comes across as meaningful, interesting, and totally nonacademic. That's why many academic types hate Campbell, and his mentor Jung,- they know that Campbell's and Jung's works will endure and be read a thousand years from now, while their own monographs will be justly forgotten. There are a lot of mediocre Ph.D's out there that can never forget that Campbell never bothered to get a doctorate, because he considered such degrees to be a worthless and meaningless waste of time....

A Classic 9. Mai 2013
Von Deborah F. Baratti - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Ever wonder why Frodo and Harry Potter seem to have many of the same personality quirks, face similar self-doubts and challenges? Ever wonder why literally every civilizations has dragon myths? Joseph Campbell was the master of symbology and insight into mankind's quest to fashion for a road map through the journey of life on this planet.

Classic Campbell 19. Juni 2013
Von K. E. S. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Campbell lived in another time, and so sometimes his vocabulary may not entirely translate. However the ideas and the careful, methodical thought he puts into his writing is priceless. It is clear that he wishes to help us all to "follow our bliss". Through the medium of mythology, Campbell truly explores the deepest need in us live a meaningful and love filled life. Genius.
