Publisher Description

The world-renowned classic that has enthralled and delighted millions of readers with its timeless tales of gods and heroes.

Edith Hamilton's mythology succeeds like no other book in bringing to life for the modern reader the Greek, Roman and Norse myths that are the keystone of Western culture-the stories of gods and heroes that have inspired human creativity from antiquity to the present.

We follow the drama of the Trojan War and the wanderings of Odysseus. We hear the tales of Jason and the Golden Fleece, Cupid and Psyche, and mighty King Midas. We discover the origins of the names of the constellations. And we recognize reference points for countless works for art, literature and culture inquiry-from Freud's Oedipus complex to Wagner's Ring Cycle of operas to Eugene O'Neill's Mourning Becomes Electra

Both a reference text for scholars of all ages and a book to simply enjoy, Mythology is a classic not to be missed.

Edith Hamilton Greek Mythology

I thoroughly enjoyed this Audio Book!

A Classic

Books belong to the generations that actually read, and think.
These stories have been part of human culture for hundreds of years.
Rather than write a review of whether Edith Hamilton's beloved tellings of these tales are worthy of your time, I would sooner ask you, listener: Are *you* worthy of *them*?...
