Details: The Let’s Talk About It, Oklahoma book discussion series at Oklahoma City University will open its winter 2013 season with “The Power of Myth” by Joseph Campbell. The discussion is free to the public.
The series is made possible through a grant from the Oklahoma Humanities Council.
“The Power of Myth” is a collection of interviews that focus on the paradigm of heroes. The author used examples from popular myths to illustrate cycles of the “hero journey.”
This season’s series is titled “Myth and Literature” and is inspired by the numerous interviews of Campbell, a writer who specialized in comparative mythology and comparative religion, by journalist Bill Moyers that appeared on PBS television.
“Myths have been called stories in which people find their most important meanings,” said Harbour Winn, director of OCU’s Center for Interpersonal Studies through Film & Literature. “In this series we’ll explore humanity’s profound need to search for meaning and significance in the patterns of great stories from world mythology.”
