The Heroine's Journey: by Maureen Murdock: Story Circle Book Reviews

I like this book, and I enjoy reading it. This book explores feminine and masculine archetypes, as told through telling of mythological tales from different traditions and manifestations of them in real life. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

In fact, I have a feeling that as I complete re-writes on my current project I'll be revisiting this text a lot. At any rate, Murdock became convinced that women were involved in their own psycho-spiritual journeys and quests and developed the following model.

Apr 15, Karen Briscoe rated it it was amazing. Lists with This Book. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Some that really made me cringe: Goodreads is the world's largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews.

The material acts as a guide for the reader through story, myth, and experiences. The heroine faces a crisis of some sort in which the new way is insufficient and falls into despair.

This whole book reeked of very bad psychology. Read it if you need help understanding traumas related to your relationship with your parents, especially your mother, but not for academic purposes.

Heroine’s Journey I

Being a fan of Joseph Campbell, this went right along with that only from a feminine point murodck view; the heroine vs. To be brief, in the book itself, the word illusionary is literally that. Maureen Murdock makes a compelling case for the links between the destruction of our ecological systems, subjugation of women and geroines and minorities, and unbridled greed to masculine energy in our society gone haywire.

This is a timeless connection. Can you give us an example of a heroine Journey history, tale, or movie to understand it better? A few good insights, but you have to wade through an awful lot of chaff to get to the wheat.

We have a beautiful updated version of Christopher Vogler's The Writer's Journey which is were I read about Murdock's workso how about a similar edition for The Heroine?

Promises a version of Joseph Campbell's idea on the hero journey but for heroines. And 18 years from now some snarky contemporary feminist will find it strangely dated. May 22, Terelyn rated it really liked it. The female heroic persona can be just as much of a trap as a male heroic persona. Drawing upon cultural myths and fairy tales, ancient symbols and goddesses, and the dreams of contemporary women, Murdock illustrates the need for—and the reality of—feminine values in Western culture today.

Everyone has an opinion about what a woman should or should not do with her body. My coworker asked that because earlier in her life she wanted to work at a nursing home but said she selfishly chose other things. It's kind of wild that a book like this can seem so old because it indicates to me that quite a lot has happened in the last 18 years.

The Heroine's Journey

Jul 20, Cherity Cook rated it it was ok. Maybe it's just because I'm hungry for someone to REALLY lay out a heroine's journey, to really take on the feminine experience of the mythic structure and not just some "let's remember to honor our mother, Gaia" song.

Email required Address never made public. Her analysis of the myth of Demeter and Persephone as well as Inana and Erishkigal This is one of only 2 books I have ever read that changed the way that I view my life as a woman.

Not a parallel to Campbell's monomyth.
