Joseph Campbell Foundation

The Joseph Campbell Foundation website has been redesigned. The new site is really nice. They’ve done a great job tying together the many sections into a single design. It’s an excellent site to discuss Campbell’s books and ideas. It has an active, intelligent discussion group that has also given rise to several “Round Table” groups in cities around the world where people take the online discussion offline and in person. If you’re not a member, you should sign up and join the conversation … it’s free.

    im a student from newaygo high school,
    in newaygo MI.
    Im writing a thematic analysis paper for english. We just recently read
    “Esperaza Rising”, and it had the qualities of your journey pattern.
    I read over some of your writings
    online and i understnad why my teacher uses your journey idea. Hes much like you in his outlooks in life. But I really am just writing because I would like your imput to what you think is a magical companion.
    In esperanza rising, i want to say isabel is the magical companion because shes someone who greatly effected esperanzas life, but whats there special meaning? why are they cherished so much?

    I recently saw the new film “Finding Joe” at the Sedona Film Festivasl. Afterwards a man presented as an expert on Joseph Campbell said that Campbell took the Last Rites of the Catholic Church on his deathbed. I find this hard to believe unless he regarded the rites as a metaphor. Can anyone clarify this for me.
