9780300101454: Greek Gods, Human Lives: What We Can Learn from Myths

The mythology of ancient Greece has fascinated readers for two millennia and has formed the basis of Western civilization. The Greek gods are a perennial source of delight because they seem so much like us: in their rages, their love affairs, and their obsession with honor, the gods often appear all too human.

From the Back Cover:

"This thoughtful and illuminating book deals with a very important set of topics in Greek literature and thought: What is the real role of the Gods? How important are they, and how seriously are they meant to be taken? And is it all, in some sense, true?"-Jasper Griffin, Oxford University
