User Review  - StarofSophia - LibraryThing

I got this book, thinking it was a collection of Medieval Mythology - and it is, but it is just a collection of excerpts. This would be a good book to introduce you to good titles in the genre, but you'll have to go find the actual text elsewhere. Read full review
