Synopsis: Edith Hamilton s "Mythology" succeeds like no other book in bringing to life for the modern reader the Greek, Roman, and Norse myths that are the keystone of Western culture the stories of gods and heroes that have inspired human creativity from antiquity to the present. We meet the Greek gods on Olympus and Norse gods in Valhalla. We follow the drama of the Trojan War and the wanderings of Odysseus. We hear the tales of Jason and the Golden Fleece, Cupid and Psyche, and mighty King Midas. We discover the origins of the names of the constellations. And we recognize reference points for countless works of art, literature, and cultural inquiry from Freud s Oedipus complex to Wagner s "Ring Cycle" of operas to Eugene O Neill s "Mourning Becomes Electra." Praised throughout the world for its authority and lucidity, "Mythology" is Edith Hamilton s masterpiece the standard by which all other books on mythology are measured."
