Building on the best-selling tradition of previous editions, Classical Mythology, Ninth Edition, is the most comprehensive survey of classical mythology available-- and the first full-color textbook of its kind. Featuring the authors' clear and extensive translations of original sources, it brings to life the myths and legends of Greece and Rome in a lucid and engaging style. The text contains a wide variety of faithfully translated passages from Greek and Latin sources, including Homer, Hesiod, all the Homeric Hymns, Pindar, Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Herodotus, Plato, Lucian, Lucretius, Vergil, Ovid, and Seneca.

Acclaimed authors Mark P.O. Morford and Robert J. Lenardon--joined by new coauthor Michael N. Sham--incorporate a dynamic combination of poetic narratives and enlightening commentary to make the myths come alive for students. Offering historical and cultural background on the myths (including evidence from art and archaeology) they also provide ample interpretative material and examine the enduring survival of classical mythology and its influence in the fields of art, literature, music, dance, and film.

NEW TO THIS EDITION:

* Stunning full-color art program: 174 photos & illustrations (many new), 22 figures, and 8 maps (3 new, 5 improved)--with lucid explanatory captions, now in full color throughout
* Enhanced pedagogy: New chapter-opening quotations; improved timelines, maps, and genealogies; expanded and updated select bibliographies; and prominent web icons in the margins that provide a more seamless integration between the text and the companion website
* New and updated content: New material and discussions, including an examination of the stages of development in feminist interpretation and an appendix offering an analysis of Greek Religion that covers the relationship of mythology to religion, civic and mystery religions, hero cults, priests and priestesses, and the ritual of sacrifice
