Joseph Campbell on the Art of James Joyce
SKU: 344 (MAIN SKU) Categories: , , ,


"Along with his famous studies of heroes, Jung, global myths, and world religions, Joseph Campbell was also an early and important James Joyce scholar, best known for A Skeleton Key to Finnegans Wake , coauthored with Henry M. Robinson. [Mythic Worlds, Modern Words] gathers Campbell's lectures and shorter essays on Joyce's work, opening with an obituary notice about the writer and ending with a controversial account of Thornton Wilder's play The Skin of Our Teeth (which Campbell believed was little more than a Wake rip-off). In between Campbell proffers his interpretations of the major works, emphasizing their use of archetypal figures and situations." — Washington Post Book World
