From the Publisher:

Kirkwood's A Short Guide to Classical Mythology is an excellent interdisciplinary resource for the study of literature, classics, history, and comparative religions. This corrected reprint of the 1959 Holt, Rinehart and Winston edition is an attractive, affordable and portable edition. It includes: - A Foreword on How to Read This Book - A Complete reference list with pronunciation key and variable length entries according to literary importance of the Greek myths - References to English and European literature - Bibliographic references

From the Author:

A short book that tries to cover as much ground as this one must be compressed. It is hoped that by having many short entries, with a few long and comprehensive entries, two aims will be served: to provide a reasonably complete reference list for the student of literature, and to convey the principal stories of classical mythology in a way that does not wholly rob them of their quality as stories. From the Author's Foreward.
