haven't read joseph campbell's stuff yet, but i saw the pbs series about him.
the relationship of myth to these cycles sounds like his sort of thing...

I don't know of specific references by Campbell to Vico, but he was very interested in Joyce. He was the co-author of "A Skeleton Key to Finnegan's Wake" (which funnily enough, I bought and read before becoming familiar with Campbell's work on mythology!).

Viconian thunders play a significant role in Finnegan's Wake.
