In Classical Mythology: The Greeks, widely published Professor Peter Meineck examines in thrilling detail far-reaching influence of Greek myths on Western thought and literature. The nature of myth and its importance to ancient Greece in terms of storytelling, music, poetry, religion, cults, rituals, theatre, and literature are viewed through works ranging from Homer's Iliad and Odyssey to the writings of Sophocles and Aeschylus. Through the study of these time-honored myths, the Greek heroes and gods - including Hearcles, Zeus, Achilles, Athena, Aphrodite, and others - come alive in all their glorious splendor. These lectures are not only an entertaining guide to Greek mythology, but a fascinating look into the culture and time that produced these eternal tales.
