This volume aims to bring to life for the modern reader, the Greek, Roman and Norse myths that are the keystone of Western culture - the stories of gods and heroes that have inspired human creativity from antiquity to the present. Readers are introduced to the Greek gods on Olympus and Norse gods in Valhalla and can follow the drama of the Trojan War and the wanderings of Odysseus. We hear the tales of Jason and the Golden Fleece, Cupid and Psyche and mighty King Midas, and discover the origins of the names of the constellations. The book explores the reference points for works of art, literature and cultural inquiry.
