Campbell and “The Hero With a Thousand Faces” in Forbes

Forbes contributor, Dede Henley, shares in her recent article Reframe Quaratine as an Adventure and Become Its Hero, her admiration for Joseph Campbell and his classic work, The Hero With a Thousand Faces. Applying Campbell and his book to current circumstances, Henley states, “You are a hero. As I say that, I am thinking of one of my heroes, Joseph Campbell, who wrote a book called The Hero with a Thousand Faces. You are one of those faces. You are a hero, and right now, you are on an adventure, whether you have thought of this pandemic as an adventure or not. None of us chose this particular adventure, of course. But like it or not, we are all on this journey together.” Henley goes on to discuss the role of the hero in bringing the boon back to one’s community as well as how to recognize what that boon might be.
