9781440087912: Manual of Mythology: Greek and Roman, Norse and Old German, Hindoo and Egyptian Mythology (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Manual of Mythology: Greek and Roman, Norse and Old German, Hindoo and Egyptian Mythology

A knowledge of Classical Mythology is essential to an appreciative understanding of many of the masterpieces of English Literature, from Chaucer's time to our own.

Edmund Burke has well said: "The Grecian mythology is so intimately connected with the work of the greatest poets that it will continue to be interesting as long as classical poetry exists, and must form an indispensable part of the education of the man of literature and of the gentleman."

This book, designed as a help in acquiring that education, is a revised and corrected edition of Murray's Manual of Mythology, a most popular English work based upon the German works of Preller, Welcker, and Petiscus. The last-named author's Der Olymp has passed through more than twenty editions, the most recent of which have been constantly consulted by the editor.
