Synopsis

From the first millennium BC onwards, Greek myths have been repeated in an inexhaustible series of variations and reinterpretations. Nowadays they can be found in film, television and computer games. This book combines a retelling of Greek myths with a comprehensive account of the world in which they developed.

Throughout, the author draws upon the latest research into ancient Greek story-telling, presenting the material in an attractive, accessible and authoritative style. With its lavish illustrations, detailed genealogical tables of gods and heroes, box features and specially commissioned maps, this is the one essential resource on these classic stories that lie at the heart of western civilization.
