Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The Myths of Greece and Rome is an introductory look at the most popular mythological figures and stories from two of the world's greatest civilizations. Greek and Roman myths are still used as sources of inspiration by modern authors, and to prove this point, Guerber has included quotes from modern works throughout the book.

Readers of all ages can find here the fascinating myths about:

* Creation * Apollo * Venus * Jupiter * Neptune * Hercules * Mars * Vulcan * Vesta * and more! --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

About the Author

British writer HELENE A. GUERBER (1859-1929) was a historian who wrote mostly about Germanic mythology. Her most popular work was Myths of the Norsemen (1909). --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Format: Paperback
This book features a selection of Roman and Greek myths, in addition to several short summaries of stories such as the Iliad, the Alliad, and the Oddesy. In addition, it contains many passages from such poets as Homer, Shakespeare, and several others of a more modern origin. Written in fine, if rather flowery script, this book portrays its myths just as one would assume the ingenious writers and story tellers who created them would like them to be told. A vast accomplishment, this document has been printed and reprinted ever since it was first written over a hundred years ago. Every known god or goddess is allotted their tales, which include various versions, stating the details that differ from version to version. Colorful descriptions of each deity are accompanied by a complete list of their many different names. Both new and old versions of the book are still available. As an added bonus, it does not have a bias towards other religions, but approaches the subject in a slightly more scientific manner.

The only reason that I am giving this 4 stars instead of 5 is because while it has many stories within it, I was hoping for a few more. The book itself and the contents are amazing as far as I'm concerned though!

Format: Paperback
The book description mentions that it includes ilustrations from recognized painters, but the book does not include anyone, only the one in the cover. If you can choose the dover's edition you can give the 5 stars.

Format: Paperback
the genealogical table and TOC inside of the book are going by the Roman names as opposed to Greek names. I wish it's the later since the Greek mythology was created long time before the Roman mythology.
