In 1927, Joseph Campbell was given clues to reading James Joyce’s labyrinthine Ulysses by its original publisher, Sylvia Beach. Campbell said this changed his career, and his discoveries became the foundation for his later work in comparative mythology. To analyze Ulysses and Joyce’s other works, he employed depth psychology, anthropology, religion, and art history as tools.
A treasure for Joyce and Campbell fans alike, Mythic Worlds, Modern Words collects sixty years of Campbell’s writings, lectures, and other commentary on Joyce, including exchanges with his audiences and Campbell’s 1941 James Joyce obituary.
