Overview

Greek Mythology is an enormous field of study and a brief guide is a daunting task for any writer. The myths have a way of entwining one with another, and it is difficult to present a coherent story line without feeling one has omitted the best part of the story.

Inside you will read about...


- What Is A Myth?
- The Sources Of Greek Mythology
- The Creation Of The Universe And The Gods
- What Of Man? What Of Woman?
- The Greek Pantheon
- The Trojan War
- The Influence Of Greek Drama
- Two Greek Mortal Heroes In Mythological Tales

This guide succeeds in presenting an overall sketch of the creation of the world and the battles that follow, resulting in Zeus taking his place as the supreme god and ruling the earth from Mount Olympus. It covers the creation of man, it seems, as a bit of an afterthought for the amusement of the Olympians and some of the most famous stories that have come down to us via the writings of the great dramatists of the Classical Age. There are concise biographies of the twelve gods that make up the Olympians as well as of the heroes of the Trojan War.

Greek Mythology was my minor in college - but that was over 16 years ago so it was nice to finally read a book to refresh my memory. I like how this book starts out with the history and moves onto how myths came about and then of course goes into a lot more detail about the Titans and how they ruled. I had forgotten some of the stories but the Titans and their main children have never left me. Of course Apollo and Artemis are my absolute favorites because Artemis was the virgin goddess and although a hunter also was the guardian of animals. And who can forget Athena and her dominant personality??? The book gives at least one paragraph or more to each of the main Titans and their children. Hermes, Aphrodite, Ares and many more. The most popular stories are in here and it's a GREAT starter book for anyone who is not that familiar with Greek Mythology but is also a great refresher for someone like me. I really enjoyed reading the stories again and remembering how much I really loved them. ***I received a complimentary ebook in exchange for my honest review.***
