Overview

A landmark series that captured the imaginations of millions of public television viewers, The Power of Myth is an exhilarating journey into the mind and spirit of a remarkable man, a legendary teacher, and a masterful storyteller. In this series of conversations with Bill Moyers, Joseph Campbell pursues his conviction that mythology defines and guides our lives and our culture. Reaching back into early history, Campbell claims that heroic adventures were a part of all world cultures, then challenges viewers to see the presence of a heroic journey in their own lives. He explores the enduring myth of death and rebirth, the rite of passage in primitive societies, the role of mystical Shamans, and the decline of rituals in today's society. His subjects range from the changing images of women to the concepts of God and the role of sacrifice in myth.
