Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Endymion, Pelops, Daedalus, Pygmalion — we recognize the names, but what are the stories behind these and other familiar gods from the Greek pantheon — names that recur throughout the history of European culture?

Drawing on an enormous range of sources, Robert Graves has brought together elements of these myths in simple narrative form. He retells the adventures of the most important gods and heroes of the ancient Greeks. His work has become the reference for the serious scholar as well as the casual inquirer.

Synopsis:

In a work that has become a classic reference book for both the serious scholar and the casual inquirer, Graves retells the adventures of the important gods and heroes worshipped by the ancient Greeks. Each entry provides a full commentary which examines problems of interpretation in both historical and anthropological terms, and in light of contemporary research.

Synopsis:

This edition contains "The Greek Myths" volumes one and two.

Synopsis:

The gold standard in Greek mythology, in a dazzling Graphic Deluxe Edition with a new introduction by the bestselling author of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series

From the creation of the world out of Chaos and the birth of the Olympians to the Trojan War and Odysseus's return, Robert Graves's superb retelling of the Greek myths has long been acclaimed as the definitive edition. Graves draws on sources scattered throughout ancient literature, using a novelist's skill to weave a crisp, coherent narrative of each myth and providing commentaries with cross-references, interpretations, and explanations based on solid scholarship. The result is a classic volume of many of the greatest stories ever told—stories of the gods, heroes, and extraordinary events that inspired Homer, the Greek tragedians, and so much of subsequent European literature.

Synopsis:

Combines in a single volume the complete text of the definitive two-volume classic, citing all the ancient myths.

This book has all the information and all the stories but it is far from an easy read. The myths are not very well told. They are dry and bland. This book is more of an experts refrence book then a story book.
