Along with Kafka, Joyce, Asimov, and Gibson, Campbell has earned himself a spot as one of the authors that have had the greatest impact on my psyche and the way I see the world. Easily one of my favourite books ever. Campbell's prose is poetic, yet succinct. He puts his points across in a beautiful way through myths and legends from all over the globe. I found that every chapter lead me down a road of epiphany and wonder, and I know for certain I'll be coming back to this book throughout my life.… (més)

Dans was een van de brede passies van mytholoog Joseph Campbell. Zijn vrouw, Jean Erdman, was een leidende figuur in de moderne dans. Ze werkte samen met Martha Graham en had Merce Cunningham in haar eerste gezelschap. Toen Campbell in 1972 met pensioen ging, vormden hij en Erdman het Theatre of the Open Eye, waar ze bijna vijftien jaar lang een breed scala aan dans- en theaterproducties, lezingen en performancestukken presenteerden.

The Ecstasy of Being brengt zeven niet eerder verzamelde artikelen van Campbell over dans samen, samen met ‘Mythology and Form in the Performing and Visual Arts’, de verhandeling waaraan hij werkte toen hij stierf, die hier voor het eerst wordt gepubliceerd.

In deze nieuwe bundel onderzoekt Campbell de opkomst van moderne kunst en dans in de twintigste eeuw; duikt in het werk en de filosofie van Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham en anderen; en onderzoekt, zoals altijd, het idee van kunst als ‘de trechter waardoor geest in het leven wordt gegoten’. Dit boek biedt de lezer een toegankelijk, maar diepgaand en provocerend inzicht in Campbells levenslange fascinatie voor de relatie tussen mythe en esthetische vorm en menselijke psychologie.
