Editorial Reviews

New Yorker
Edith Hamilton retells the Greek, Roman, and Norse myths with a sure taste and scholarship that help to restore their quality as perennial and refreshing fables about human nature, including our own.
New York Times Book Review
No one in modern times has shown us more vividly than Edith Hamilton 'the glory that was Greece and the grandeur that was Rome.' Filtering the golden essence from the mass of classical literarure, she proved how applicable to our daily lives are the humor and wisdom of more than 2,000 years ago.
