Description - The Writer's Journey by Christopher Vogler
The Writer's Journey, third edition, is an indispensable guide to the inner workings of stories, to the ancient and deep-seated patterns of emotion that speak to us through the symbolic language of myth. Christopher Vogler, one of Hollywood's most renowned story consultants and teachers, expands his vision to show how storytelling evolved from sacred rituals and how its inexhaustible powers can be adapted to the needs of modern storytellers. New chapters on conflict, polarisation, and catharsis add dimensions to the core material of The Writer's Journey that is now THE MOST widely used book in the movie, TV, publishing, and computer gaming industries.
"Every time I start a project I re-skim a book called "The Writer's Journey" by Christopher Vogler. It is a reinterpretation of Joseph Campbell's works - "The Hero's Journey" and "The Hero With a Thousand Faces" - pointed toward practical writing advice. It is filled with things you already know, which is sort of the point, only lined up in highly helpful ways to construct your story. I read it for the first time at 18 and have used it for reference ever since" - Jason Segel in The New York Times.
