The seminar lasted for one month and was attended by the editor, Diane K. Osbon, and nine other fortunate people.
In one memorable segment Campbell discusses the woman's life and her journey. The traditional role of the woman is in relationship in one way or another to a family. This role can continue into old age as in the example of the grandmother. Campbell contrasts the traditional female role to that of the female professors who are more on the male hero's journey deriving fulfillment from worldly achievements. Campbell sees these women as being less fulfilled than women who are also in nontraditional roles but are totally involved in the arts. The latter receive their fulfillment mostly from doing what the artist does and not so much from their accomplishments.
If you begin to read A JOSEPH CAMPBELL COMPANION, it will be a difficult volume to put back in the book in the book case. It is more likely to remain close at hand to be read again and again.
