The author sets before the reader a lifelike picture of the deities of classical times as they were conceived and worshipped by the ancients themselves, and thereby to awaken in the minds of young students a desire to become more intimately acquainted with the noble productions of classical antiquity. The aim was to render the legends, which form the second portion of this work, a picture of old Greek life; its customs, superstitions, and princely hospitalities, for which reason they are given at somewhat greater length than is usual in works of this kind.

Review: The Myths and Legends of Ancient Greece and Rome

User Review  - Katie - Goodreads

This book is a great overview of all the Greek and Roman gods as well as the myths and legends. I definitely learned a lot. I probably would have liked it better if it had been written more in a story form, but it was still interesting. Read full review
