Finally, Joseph Campbell's first (most iconic) work is available in a complete unabridged recording! Campbell captured the imagination of the postwar generation with his exploration of universal themes in mythology. His mythological imagery provided the foundation for generations of fantasy writing. The early Star Wars movies follow this book almost chapter for chapter. Today, Campbell's unquestioned reliance on Jungian and Freudian concepts may seem dated. The power of the audiobook is in the carefully chosen excerpts of tales from mythology. Arthur Morey, John Lee, and Susan Denaker are an adept and experienced performance team. The way they trade voices adds texture to the complex compendium of stories. Although few people could perfectly pronounce the names of all the mythological characters in this global survey, they do an excellent job.
