Description

  • Great product!
  • Edith Hamilton loved the ancient Western myths with a passion--and this classic compendium is her tribute. "The tales of
    Greek mythology do not throw any clear light upon what early mankind was like," Hamilton explains in her introduction.
    "They do throw an abundance of light upon what early Greeks were like--a matter, it would seem, of more importance to
    us, who are their descendents intellectually, artistically, and politically. Nothing we learn about them is alien to
    ourselves." Fans of Greek mythology will find all the great stories and characters here--Perseus, Hercules, and
    Odysseus--each discussed in generous detail by the voice of an impressively knowledgeable and engaging (with occasional
    lapses) narrator. This is also an excellent primer for middle- and high-school students who are studying ancient Greek
    and Roman culture and literature. --Gail Hudson
