JOSEPH CAMPBELL ON THE ART OF JAMES JOYCE: An excerpt from MYTHIC WORLDS, MODERN WORDS
By Publicity Admin

In 1927, as a twenty-three-year-old postgraduate scholar in Paris, Joseph Campbell first encountered James Joyce’s Ulysses. Known for being praised and for kicking up controversy, the novel left Campbell both intrigued and confused, as it had many others. For the next sixty years, Campbell continued his study of Joyce’s work—writing and lecturing on Joyce using depth psychology, comparative religion, anthropology, and art history as tools of analysis.


Arranged by Joyce scholar Edmund L. Epstein, Mythic Worlds, Modern Words presents a wide range of Campbell’s writing and lectures on Joyce, which together form an illuminating running commentary on Joyce’s masterworks. Campbell’s visceral appreciation for all that was new in Joyce will delight the previously uninitiated, and perhaps intimidated, as well as longtime lovers of both Joyce and Campbell. We hope you’ll enjoy this excerpt from Epstein’s foreword to the book.

Write from the Heart (Or At Least Make a Start!)
By Samy AbulEla

These days most of my writing is limited to press materials, short and factual emails, and putting together newsletters for local nonprofits. After talking to fellow NWL publicist Kim Corbin about a short story I wrote in college I realized that I missed creative writing. I started to think more and more about that paper and the class I wrote it for…I got a good grade on it…and more importantly, I enjoyed writing it…so I made a date with myself, took a look at Hal Zina Bennett’s Write Starts: Prompts, Quotes, and Exercises to Jumpstart Your Creativity and assigned myself the following exercise from the book. I’ll let you know how it goes, and I promise to start writing and stop looking for my old typewriter (which would make my trip down memory lane complete).

Get Unreal: A Writing Exercise
By Hal Zina Bennett

Legend has it that Picasso once got into a discussion with a neighbor who looked at his paintings and told the artist that while his colors were nice and the picture was very pleasant, he should try making them a bit more realistic. Otherwise, he advised, nobody would know what Picasso’s paintings were supposed to be about. The artist, exercising a rare amount of patience, nodded thoughtfully and asked his neighbor if he had an example of what he meant by realistic.
