In these essays — contemporary with his years at Sarah Lawrence and with his legendary Cooper Union lectures — Campbell explores the origins of myth, from the Grimms’ fairy tales to Native American legends. He explains how the symbolic content of myth is linked to universal human experience and how the myths and experiences change over time.

Included is the famed essay “Mythogenesis,” which traces the rise and decline of a Native American legend.

Review:

In this book, as in his other work, Campbell displays his immense learning, drawing evidence to support his case from virtually every branch of human knowledge. —The New York Times Book Review

Campbell has become one of the rarest of intellectuals in American life: a serious thinker who had been embraced by the popular culture. — Newsweek
