Comparative Mythologists during the present century have effected a complete revolution in the treatment and classification of the various systems of mythology. The present Manual, which is an attempt to give the results of those researches in a form suitable for the young, must necessarily differ widely from the manuals or elementary works which have preceded it. But no apology seems to be needed for changes which remove from our common heritage of mythical tradition all that may appear gross and repulsive in it, and exhibit the exquisite poetry which lies at the root of all these ancient stories. In some portions of the subject, differences of opinion must still exist.
