Product Overview

Organized by character or travelers name, each entry includes a description of the voyagers life, their journey, alternate versions of the story, symbolism, cross-references, and a list of ancient sources. Each entry in Voyages in Classical Mythology is accompanied by a map, helping readers trace the routes of heroes and deities whose quests took them to such faraway destinations as Egypt, Sparta, Troy, and the Black Sea. Tales include some of mythologys greatest moments, including Daedaluss trip to Crete, his entrapment in the labyrinth he designed, and the fateful flight back to Italy with his son, Icarus; Helens voyage from Greece to Troy and back again; and Orpheuss journey to the Underworld to retrieve his bride. Voyages in Classical Mythology also includes a convenient glossary of relevant terms from Greek and Roman Mythology and a detailed index. The eloquent text makes the complex themes of classical scholarship accessible to a wide range of readers. Students and nonspecialists of any age will thoroughly enjoy these fascinating journeys. *Author: Snodgrass, Mary Ellen *Binding Type: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 472 *Publication Date: 1994/11/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 10.26 x 7.30 x 1.57 inches
