Eyewitness Companions: Mythologyby Philip Wilkinson, Neil Philip
Originally told to explain the mysteries of the world-such as creation, divine will, fertility, death, and love-myths are a major part of many cultures throughout the world, and each area has its own myths. Organized by geographic region, each myth is placed within the civilization's history and context. The key elements of world mythology, such as the hero, his divine connection, the labyrinth, the initiation, and the transformation, are explored in boxes and features throughout the book.
