"Campbell’s Monomyth: The Quest of the Mythic Hero" is a comprehensive introduction to Joseph Campbell's monomyth, its symbolism, metaphors and themes. It explores in detail Campbell's 17 original elements and organizes them into a easily-understandable eight-stage framework. While not specifically a teaching approach, the guide does give you the background, diagrams and charts you need to teach the monomyth at any level. (Please see my preview for full details.)
1 - Joseph Campbell: An Overview
This review of Joseph Campbell briefly explores his work and its impact on mythology, psychology and other disciplines.
2 - The Rite of Passage
Campbell called the Rite of Passage the "nuclear unit" of the monomyth. This overview of Rites of Passage will give you a deeper understanding of the transformative process Campbell describes in the monomyth.
3 - Campbell's Monomyth: A comprehensive analysis
Campbell's monomyth is complex and profound. This analysis explores Campbell's original 17 stages, but organizes them in a more understandable and teachable eight-stage model. The chapter also contains several charts and tables describing the monomyth and its elements.
4 - The Charts
Seven carefully designed charts help you understand not only the stages of the monomyth, but the overall theme Campbell was describing: the transformation of consciousness.
