Songs on Bronze: The Greek Myths Made Real
by Nigel Spivey, a review from Times Literary Supplement by Nick Lowe.
"Songs on Bronze, we are told, 'originated from the desire to create a single, organic narrative of as much Greek mythology as most people want or need to know.' Though eyebrows may feel an upward twitch at the last dozen words, the book does in fact pack an impressive amount into its space, covering the creation, Prometheus and Pandora, Demeter and Persephone; Herakles, Theseus, Perseus, Jason; the Trojan war and the Odyssey; and the Oresteia and Oedipus, with a handful of other better-known tragedies dropped in along the way."
