Joseph Campbell explains in the Power of Myth that the difference between a myth and a dream is that a myth is a public dream and a dream is a private myth (48). Myths arise out of the collective unconscious whereas dreams arise out of the personal unconscious. Campbell further explains—expounding upon the work of Freud and Jung—myth and dreams are connected in that mythology is the picture language of the psyche and dreams are the native tongue of this language (Flight 21-22). He writes, “That dream and vision have been, everywhere and forever, the chief creative and shaping powers of myth is generally recognized today by the leading students of mythic lore [. . .]” (Flight xii).
