All the wonder, terror and delight of Greek mythology springs forth from the pages of this unique and much-needed anthology.
Rhonda Hendricks has not only selected from the works of the ancient authors the best -- and often earliest -- versions of these tales; she has also arranged them so as to give a cumulative view of classical mythology beginning with The Creation and The Birth of Zeus.
These texts offer a new perspective on classical mythology and, by so doing, cast a new light on this cornerstone of Western culture. Read more Read less.

I don't like mythology but I need it a elective in school and the book was good to read. Great condition. Kids 7th grade school textbook. It held up for the first quarter's reading.
Inexpensive 'classic to keep'. Kids seem to enjoy knowing the stories. One person found this helpful. I mean theres nothing to say about it. Its fine. I love, love, love it when I get to read ancient Greek verse translated in a true-to-myth form, so this was a delight. There is the fair share of Ovid and Homer, but there is Pindar here and Hesiod, and some of the rarer poets - all with a wide range of talent, unifying though the ringing of words.
I had never read the whole myth of Psyche and Cupid without it being edited or summarized in some way, and so it was a joy to find it here. Rhoda A. Hendricks is true to Ovid being Roman, and using the Roman names of the gods which they adapted from the Greeks; lovely too, was her commentary to introduce some scenes with little-known information. She mixes the usual well-known myths with lesser known ones, The Building of the Walls of Troy; Bellerophon and Pegasus - and many others, translated into English from the words of the ancient poets.
While it is sometimes easy for a modern mind to think reading an ancient Greek narrative could be dull; hence the too often practice of giving a summary, in providing this book, Rhoda gives intriguing glimpses into what is truthfully a ancient richly fascinating culture and it's religion we call, merely mythology.
