Comments Mythic Worlds, Modern Words: Joseph Campbell on the Art of James Joyce

  • Charity

    This book really enhanced my enjoyment of Ulysses. I was trying to read it on my own and was making a fair go of it until I got to Cyclops when I almost threw in the towel. The note in my journal is, "Okay. What the h--- was that?"I picked up Mythic Worlds, Modern Words and Campbell very eloquently answered that and many other questions.This isn't super-detailed, but it gives the overview of the myths and other classics used while writing the novel. Campbell's style is accessible and a joy to re [...]

    I had no idea until fairly recently about Joseph Campbell's love of Joyce so this book is/was a revelation to me. Now Campbell has a treasure trove of great works so if Joyce isn't your thing you could consider passing this up, but I wouldn't because you'd be missing out on selected beautiful passages of prose as well as fantastic analysis into Joyce's works. This also helps make it a bit more accessible and infinitely more enjoyable if you do decide to tackle Ulysses or Finnegans Wake some day. [...]

    Read the full review at mindfunda/james-joyce/When you read this book you will understand so much more of society and your place in it. It is an excelent overview of human psychology in mythology and contemporary art. The one thing I regret is that it is all build around the male psyche.


  • Chris

    I can't possibly rate this book as it was written for people far more enthralled with Joyce than I myself am. At times I found the book incredibly insightful, and at other times it was off in mystical mumbo-jumbo land (which from what I know of Joyce doesn't mean it's wrong).


  • Stephanie Kelley

    Ok I skipped the section on Finnegan's Wake because No but this is THE BEST EVER


  • Francisco Becerra

    Campbell's guide to Joyce helps to discover the hidden meanings in what seems only oddly intrincate. It enhances the wonderful experience of living Joyce's mythic Dublin.
