Description


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
  • Heracles
  • Theseus
  • Jason and Medea
  • The Judgement of Paris
  • The Trojan Horse
  • Pygmalion
  • 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.
