Amazon review Before a href https www goodreads com author show Joseph Campbell title Joseph Campbell rel nofollow Joseph Campbell a became the world s most famous practitioner of comparative mythology there was Sir James George Frazer i The Golden Bough i was originally published in two volumes in but Frazer became so enamored of his topic that over the next few decades he expanded the work sixfold then in cut it all down to a single thick edition suitable for mass distribution The thesis on the origins of magic and religion that it elaborates will be long and laborious Frazer warns readers but may possess something of the charm of a voyage of discovery in which we shall visit many strange lands with strange foreign peoples and still stranger customs Chief among those customs at least as the book is remembered in the popular imagination is the sacrificial killing of god kings to ensure bountiful harvests which Frazer traces through several cultures including in his elaborations the myths of Adonis Osiris and Balder p While highly influential in its day i The Golden Bough i has come under harsh critical scrutiny in subsequent decades with many of its descriptions of regional folklore and legends deemed less than reliable p by James George Frazer, Lauro De Bosis
