9780801844102: Early Greek Myth: A Guide to Literary and Artistic Sources

"A compendium of narrative variants useful for anyone wanting seriously to analyze a Greek myth."--Times Literary Supplement

"Nothing short of remarkable... This book will certainly become a staple of all classical libraries for years to come."--Bryn Mawr Classical Review

Early Greek Myth is a much-needed handbook for scholars and others interested in the literary and artistic sources of archaic Greek myths--and the only one of its kind available in English. Timothy Gantz traces the development of each myth in narrative form and summarizes the written and visual evidence in which the specific details of the story appear. "Its accessible format, straightforward readability, and economical price should put it where it belongs, on the shelf of anyone who teaches mythology, at whatever level."--Classical Outlook

"There has long been a need for a comprehensive treatment--accessible in English--of the principal myths that one encounters while reading the major Greek texts. Early Greek Myth goes a long way to filling the gap."--Mary R. Lefkowitz, Wellesley College
