Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Retells the major myths from cultures around the world, based on scholarly English translations though shortening where necessary (no mention of Procrustes here). The arrangement is geographical, with sections on the Middle East, Greece and Rome, the Far East and Pacific Islands, the British Isles, northern Europe, Africa, and the native Americas. The anthology is supported by discussion questions, a pronunciation guide, historical notes with citations of modern editions, and an index of characters. No dates are noted for the earlier volumes; seven stories are added to the third. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
