This is a comprehensive A-Z handbook for Greek and Roman mythology, written in an unpedantic and approachable style that draws from the original sources from the 9th century BC to the 2nd century AD. Based almost exclusively on original sources, is intended both as a collection of stories to be read for their own sake and as a companion to the innumerable works of literature and art which draw on classical myth for subject matter, themes and imagery. Each tale is told as completely as possible in one place, so that a narrative does not have to be pieced together out of several entries. Plentiful cross-references are provided to help in tracing the complex inter-relationships between the myths.
