An honorary video to the eminent Joseph Campbell.

This is a fragment of a lecture given by Joseph Campbell. It can be found on the audio tape: On the Wings of Art: Joseph Campbell; Joseph Campbell on the Art of James Joyce (1995).

I've listened to this lecture a few times, and I found the section in this video to be the most interesting of the entire talk. Joseph Campbell was one of the 20th century's leading scholars on world mythology, and the language of symbols used within. He also had a very thorough understanding of Classical and Modern aesthetic theory.

Campbell was also a Joycian scholar, writing the Skeleton Key to Finnegans Wake, as well as Mythic Worlds, Modern Words: On the Art of James Joyce.

Opening clip, and credit music, from Transformations of Myth Through Time (1989).
