Ancient Greek Mythology

The mythology of any people is interesting because it reflects their individual nature and developing life; that of the Greeks is more interesting to us than any other, firstly because it expresses the nature of a people gifted with a peculiarly fine and artistic soul; secondly, because our own thought and art are, in great part, a heritage from the civilization of Greece. Much of this heritage comes to us quite directly from the Greek writers and artists whose works have been preserved. This book is a unique guide into the world of Greek gods and heroes. In a simple yet very interesting way, “Greek and Roman Mythology” brings the fascinating stories of the classical mythology which shaped the thought and artistic expression of the entire Western civilization.
