A | 70 comments Joseph Campbell the American Writer has been confused with Irish poet Joseph Campbell who wrote under the Gaelic form of his name "Seosamh Mac Cathmhaoil".

Additionally there are multiple profiles for the Irish poet and works misattributed under the American author's profile. These are my findings:

The new Joseph Campbell profile:

Seosamh MacCathmhaoil:

However... There is a LOT of books by the American author, and though I flipped through his list half a dozen times, it's quite possible I missed one or two. But better than nothing? If you see any I missed, please let me know!

I also tried to clean up the rest of the American Campbell's works, but it's still a little messy.


Also, I wasn't sure whether to use MacCathmhaoil or Mac Cathmhaoil, since he used both but it sounded like Mac Cathmhaoil more often.

However, we didn't have any books with Mac Cathmhaoil on the cover and we had 3 or 4 with MacCathmhaoil - so I went ahead and used the version without a space.
