Once and Future Myths: The Power of Ancient Stories in Modern Times (Audio Cassette)
This book of mythology for the 21st Century is Phil Cousineau's grand opus -- his masterwork, in which he gleans from the world's body of myth a stirring vision that offers the potential for "a deep experience of life". The hallmark of myth is a sense of timelessness. The story rings true not only now but through time, and people experiencing myth feel that they are living something larger than themselves. This timelessness is evident in Cousineau's discussions of the mythology of travel, mentors, cities, baseball, and creatures of the night, such as vampires. Once and Future Myths is a fascinating read and an original contribution to what we know about the power of myth. Phil Cousineau has been called the Joseph Campbell for the new millennium.
