In these collected essays, lectures, and discussions, famed mythologist Joseph Campbell illuminates Judeo-Christian symbols and metaphors - and their misinterpretations. Ranging across religious and mythological history and geography, Campbell highlights centuries of confusion between literal and metaphorical approaches to religious story and argues that the symbols of the Western religions are perennially relevant keys to spiritual understanding and mystical revelation.
