For thousands of years the myths of Ancient Greece and Rome have fascinated people and inspired great writers, artists and thinkers. Classical Mythology includes many of these myths – some famous and some unusual – retold for the modern reader and illustrated with many of the beautiful paintings and statues based on these tales.
In this collection of myths the writer has reproduced the chief features of this mythology following the best-known versions, in an attempt to make us more familiar with the Greek and Roman mythological characters so often quoted in the poetry and plays of the past and found even today in films and television programmes.
The introduction in this book provides essential information on the origin and development of the myths of Ancient Greece and Rome while a comprehensive and easy-to-use dictionary of Greco-Roman mythology has over 1,000 fully cross-referenced entries on its many tales, characters and traditions.
