Review: World Mythology: An Anthology of Great Myths and Epics

User Review  - Goodreads

I had to purchase it for school, but I'm glad my professor chose this text. It gives really great translations of many of the more popular mythologies and is organized by area of origin. I especially loved the shortened versions of more lengthy epics like Beowulf and King Arthur. Read full review
