As rich and complex as one of Arachne's tapestries. In the skilled hands of translator Tim Parks, Calasso's prose weaves a vibrant and finely detailed mural of the lives of ancient Greek gods and heroes, bringing them to life by capturing their emotions and behvioral impetus like no author has done before or since. This book is an essential part of every home library.
