The Greek Myths

The myths told by the Greeks are as important as their history for our understanding of what they believed, thought and felt, and of what they expressed in writing and visual art. Mythology was inextricably interwoven with the entire fabric of their public and private lives. This book discusses not only the purely fictional myths, fairy-tales and folk-tales but the sagas and legends which have some historical grounding. This is not a dictionary of stories, rather a selection of the most important and memorable. Robin Waterfield re-tells these marvellous tales, and then explores the different ways in which they have appeared throughout literature.
