Using a wealth of examples, from ancient myths and folk tales via the plays and novels of great literature to the popular movies and TV soap operas of today, it shows that there are seven archetypal themes which recur throughout every kind of storytelling.Hide synopsis

While Chris Vogler's bestseller "Writers Journey" -- one of my favorite books as a creative writer -- offers an excellent introduction to hero journey motifs and Jungian archetypes in literary and film narrative, Booker's earlier work (by three years) is less approachable but a monumental work of scholarship on the Jungian theory as applied to literary and film narrative. This is a brilliant, pioneering work by a major scholar. If you share my passion for all things archetypal and are a creative writer/reader, you can't go wrong with this book.
