The Gods of the Greeks

The Gods of the Greeks Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

After a brief introduction, the complex genealogies of the gods lead him from the begettings of the Titans and from Aphrodite under all her titles and aspects, to Apollo, Hermes and the reign of Zeus, touching upon the Affairs of Pan, nymphs, satyrs, cosmogonies and the birth of mankind, until he reaches the ineffable mystery of Dionysos. The lively and highly readable narrative is complemented by an appendix of detailed references to all the original texts and a fine selection of illustrations taken from vase paintings.

Synopsis:

Reconstructs the mythological histories of the divinities and the origin and destiny of mankind from ancient writings and artifacts.

Synopsis:

Drawing on a wealth of sources, from Hesiod to Pausanias and from the Orphic Hymns to Proclus, Professor Kerényi provides a clear and scholarly exposition of all the most important Greek myths.

Synopsis:

"Learned, admirably documented, exhaustive."-The Times Literary Supplement. "It most emphatically must be the book that many have long waited for."-Stephen Spender.
