Joseph Campbell on the Art of James JoyceRandom Awesome
One of the incidents that launched Joseph Campbell down the path of his life’s work was wandering into Shakespeare & Co. in Paris and picking up James Joyce’s newly published Ulysses. Now, just in time for the dual centennials of Campbell’s birth (March 26, 1904) and Bloomsday (June 16, 1904–the day in which most of Ulysses takes place), New World Library has reissued Mythic Worlds, Modern Words: Joseph Campbell on the Art of James Joyce, a wonderful examination of Joyce’s novels through Campbell’s mythic lens. In our downloadable media section, we have posted the “Introduction” from Mythic Worlds, which begins to look at Joyce’s work from mythological and psychological points of view.
