In his seminal work, Joseph Campbell explores the theory that important myths from around the world have survived for thousands of years all share a fundamental structure, which he called the monomyth. Campbell's theory has been consciously applied by a wide variety of modern writers and artists, among them poet Robert Bly, novelist Richard Adams, directors Stephen Spielberg and George Lucas, and musician and lyricist Jerry Garcia. Listed by Time Magazine as one of best 100 non-fiction books written in English since 1923.
