The Hero with a Thousand Faces Overview

The Hero with a Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell, written in 1949, uses the journey of an archetypal hero to compare mythologies as well as spiritual and psychological beliefs found in all cultures. Campbell explains his belief that there is a spiritual world that parallels the physical world. He metaphorically uses the Hero’s Journey to bring these two worlds together; all while quoting from different myths and including stories from various socio-cultural experiences. One of Campbell’s main points is that the human experience has become shallow and increasingly less of what myth intended.
