Review:


"Classical Mythology is the best text available; an excellent and complete introduction. Its strengths include its thoroughness, readability, informative notes and appendices, glossary, indices, and format."--Richard A. Spencer, Appalachian State University


"Classical Mythology gives students a firm foundation for completely understanding myths. Its structure and organization is the main reason that I greatly favor this text over its competitors. In addition, the family trees are very detailed, the excerpts from the many myths are very helpful, and the length of the excerpts is perfect."--Sherri Mussatto, Rose State College


"The principle advantage of this text is that it is better rounded and more thorough about the context of the myths without being cumbersome or pedantic. The range of coverage is also very impressive. I think that this book strikes the right balance between print and image and between summary and exposition."--Carolyn Whitson, Metropolitan State University
