Teaser Tuesday: The Hero with a Thousand Faces

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!


The myths and folk tales of the whole world make clear that the refusal is essentially a refusal to give up what one takes to be one’s own interest. The future is regarded not in terms of unremitting series of death and births, but as though one’s present system of ideals, virtues, goals and advantages were to be fixed and made secure.

– The Hero with a Thousand Faces by Joseph Campbell.

  1. I’m balancing the density of Hero with a Thousand Faces with a Star Wars graphic novel, Splinter of the Mind’s Eye. I will read more of Hero tomorrow, but I find it not only helps to take it in small bites, but to have something fun to read as well. I may reblog this tomorrow and write more about it if that’s cool?

      1. I think it really helps to have something else to read on the side for your brain to balance. At least that’s how mine works. I’m not sure what I’ll grab after I’m done with Splinter of the Mind’s Eye either…

    1. It’s a book on a theory of the journey of the archetypal hero found in world mythologies. Which isn’t normally what I read, either.

Say something and make my day!
