Our clip this week is part of a lecture from Campbell wherein he discusses the symbols present in Medieval literature, which give us hints to the mindset of the times on femininity and masculinity.

"In 'On the Great Goddess,' the introduction to Goddesses: Mysteries of the Feminine Divine, Joseph Campbell addresses 'the challenge of the moment' for women, which is to 'flower as individuals, neither as biological archetypes nor as personalities imitative of the male.'"

A new day, a new celebration: Delve into Campbell's exploration of the Feminine Divine with this week's MythBlast by Raïna Manuel-Paris.

"For Campbell, the main themes of goddess myths are those that deal with the mysteries of initiation both in terms of how temporal life is animated by eternal mystery, and also in how we experience the great round of life and death." — Safron Rossi, editor, Goddesses: Mysteries of the Feminine Divine

"You know, I didn't write my books for critics and scholars. I wrote them for students and artists. When I hear how much my work has meant to them––well, I can't tell you how happy that makes me. That means that this great stuff of myth, which I have been so privileged to work with, will be kept alive for a whole new generation. That's the function of the artists, you know, to reinterpret the old stories and make them come alive again, in poetry, painting, and now in movies."
