A keystone of our culture is the body of myth and legend of the ancient Western world--stories of gods and heroes that have inspired human creativity from antiquity to the present day. In Mythology, Edith Hamilton brings this legacy to life anew; with impeccably accurate and accessible retellings of eternally spellbinding tales. We come to know the Greek gods on Olympus and Norse gods in Valhalla. We follow the drama of the Trojan War and the wanderings of Odysseus. We trace the destinies of the Agamemnon and Oedipus dynasties, and get caught up in the fascination of such legends as Jason and the Golden Fleece. Cupid and Psyche, and Medusa. We discover the origin of the names of the constellations in the skies and reference points for countless works of art, literature, and thought. Edith Hamilton's highly acclaimed work has itself become a classic, an indispensable source of vast knowledge, insight, and enjoyment.
