Annotation Edith Hamilton's guide remains the definitive source for anyone seeking to explore the history and significance of Greek and Roman mythology. Hamilton provides an insightful introduction to classical mythology, detailing its importance in ancient society and continuing relevance today, and then gives specific summaries of all the most important characters and stories, including the creation of the world, the rise of Zeus and the gods, the Trojan War, and the adventures of mortal heroes such as Hercules, Perseus, and Odysseus. Hamilton summarizes all of the most fascinating tales, and many lesser known ones as well, and also analyzes their meaning, symbolism and connection to the natural world.
Editors Note A collection of Greek and Roman myths arranged in sections on the gods and early heroes, love and adventure stories, the Trojan war, and a brief section on Norse mythology
