Classical Gods and Heroes: Myths As Told by the Ancient Authors (Paperback)
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. Of particular interest are:
- The Ages of Mankind
- The Birth of Athena
- Oedipus the King
- Jason and Medea
- The Judgement of Paris
- The Trojan Horse
- Cupid and Psyche
These texts offer a new perspective on classical mythology and, by so doing, cast a new light on this cornerstone of Western culture.
