A Brief Guide to the Greek Myths
A Brief Guide to the Greek Myths leads the reader through the vibrant stories of ancient Greece, from the origins of the gods through to the homecomings of the Trojan heroes. All the familiar narratives are here, along with some less familiar characters and motifs. In addition to the tales, the book explains key issues arising from the narratives and discusses the myths and their wider relevance.
This long-overdue book crystallizes three key areas of interest: the nature of the tales; the stories themselves; and how they have and might be interpreted. For the first time, it brings together aspects of Greek mythology only usually available in disparate forms — namely children's books and academic works.
