  • "Ce célèbre essai de 1949 nous parvient enfin en traduction française. Plus initiateur qu'exhaustif, il tente de restituer aux symboles universels leur sens premier par la voie d'accès qu'est la psychanalyse des profondeurs; en un second temps, il échantillonne parmi une masse de données traditionnelles, des mythes et des contes folkloriques dont le rapprochement devient évident grâce à la première étape. Partant ensuite de l'aventure du héros comme archétype (départ, initiation, retour), il réinsère celui-ci dans le cycle cosmogonique tel que rappelé ou révélé par les mythologies et les religions. Ouvrage solide mais relativement facile compte tenu de la vastitude du sujet pourvu qu'on possède une base culturelle adéquate. De nombreuses notes et un index complètent ce livre important."

  • ""En esta notable obra, Joseph Campbell intenta aplicar los postulados del psicoanálisis, especialmente de la escuela de C.G. Jung, al estudio de las mitologías. Después de señalar las significativas coincidencias observadas entre el simbolismo de los sueños y ciertos elementos característicos de los mitos, el autor inicia la exposición ordenada de dichos elementos, que ilustra mediante profusas referencias a las mitologías de los grupos culturales más diversos. La partida, la iniciación, la apoteosis y el regreso son componentes esenciales de la aventura del héroe y se identifican una y otra vez en leyendas, tradiciones y rituales de todos los pueblos del mundo: en los mitos polinesios o griegos, en las leyendas africanas, en los cuentos de hadas y aun en ciertos símbolos de las grandes religiones actuales. El autor indica la posibilidad de que estos sistemas simbólicos representen creaciones naturales de la mente humana, de ahí su difusión, y señala que la situación perturbada de la sociedad occidental en los últimos tiempos bien podría deberse al descrédito progresivo en que han caído las mitologías y a la racionalización sufrida por ellas, con lo cual las imágenes simbólicas se refugian en su lugar de origen -el inconsciente y el individuo aislado ha de enfrentarse a los dilemas que en un tiempo resolvían satisfactoriamente los sistemas mitológicos colectivo." --Contratapa."@es
  • "In this book, Joseph Campbell presents the composite hero. Apollo, the Frog King of the fairy tale, Wotan, the Buddha, and numerous other protagonists of folklore and religion, enact simultaneously the various phases of their common story. The psychological view is then compared with the words of such spiritual leaders as Moses, Jesus, Mohammed, Lao-tse, and the 'Old Men' of Australian tribes. From behind a thousand faces the single hero emerges, archetype of all myth."

  • "Since its release in 1949, The Hero With a Thousand Faces has influenced millions of readers by combining the insights of modern psychology with Joseph Campbells' revolutionary understanding of comparative mythology. In these pages, Campbell outlines the Hero's Journey, a universal motif of adventure and transformation that runs through virtually all of the world's mythic traditions. He also explores the Cosmogonic Cycle, the mythic pattern of world creation and destruction."
  • "Examines myths and folk tales from around the world in an attempt to understand the symbolism of the hero as it appears in the mythologies and religions of mankind."
