About the Author

Barry B. Powell , after graduation from Berkeley and Harvard, taught at Northern Arizona University, then took a job at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he taught for 34 years. He is a master of many languages, both ancient and modern, and for many years taught Egyptian philology and culture at Wisconsin, in addition to courses in Classics. His book Homer and the Origin of the Greek Alphabet, which advanced the thesis that one man invented the Greek alphabet in order to record the poet Homer, has become a classic and changed the way we think about the origins of Western Culture. He has written many other books, including two novels and a book of poetry. His book Classical Myth, is the best-selling book on the topic, and is now in its seventh edition. His book Homer is the best-selling study of this author. The Greeks: History, Culture, and Society (second edition, with Ian Morris) is widely used in college classrooms. He is currently preparing a translation of the Iliad and the Odyssey. He lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he and his wife Patricia enjoy the company of their children and grandchildren.

Stories are divided up nicely and easy to follow.
But the pages are so thin, I'm scared I'll tear something.

It's a used book, so it's a little banged up, but no one expects a used book to be perfect. Cheap and easy, that's what I aimed for, that's what I got!

Great condition! Even though it is for a class, it is an easy read. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in classical mythology and want to know the "tales". Lots of fun facts too.

I'm very satisfied with the textbook! The description stated that it was used, but there are no highlights, stray marks, and everything is in very good condition. Very little wear and tear.
