Among his many gifts, Joseph Campbell's most impressive was the
unique ability to take a contemporary situation, such as the
murder and funeral of President John F. Kennedy, and help us
understand its impact in the context of ancient mythology. Herein
lies the power of The Power of Myth, showing how humans are apt
to create and live out the themes of mythology. Based on a
six-part PBS television series hosted by Bill Moyers, this
classic is especially compelling because of its engaging
question-and-answer format, creating an easy, conversational
approach to complicated and esoteric topics. For example, when
discussing the mythology of heroes, Campbell and Moyers smoothly
segue from the Sumerian sky goddess Inanna to Star Wars'
mercenary-turned-hero, Han Solo. Most impressive is Campbell's
encyclopedic knowledge of myths, demonstrated in his ability to
recall the details and archetypes of almost any story, from any
point and history, and translate it into a lesson for spiritual
living in the here and now. --Gail Hudson
