Overview

Bulfinch's Mythology
The Age of Fable;
or Stories of Gods and Heroes
Thomas Bulfinch

Thomas Bulfinch was an American writer, born in Newton, Massachusetts. He is best known as the author of Bulfinch's Mythology, an 1881 compilation of his previous works. The compilation assembled posthumously by Edward Everett Hale, known simply as Bulfinch's Mythology, includes various stories belonging to the mythological traditions known as the Matter of Rome, the Matter of Britain and the Matter of France, respectively. Greek mythology is the body of myths and teachings that belong to the ancient Greeks, concerning their gods and heroes, the nature of the world, and the origins and significance of their own cult and ritual practices. It was a part of the religion in ancient Greece. Modern scholars refer to and study the myths in an attempt to shed light on the religious and political institutions of Ancient Greece and its civilization, and to gain understanding of the nature of myth-making itself. Greek mythology is explicitly embodied in a large collection of narratives, and implicitly in Greek representational arts, such as vase-paintings and votive gifts. Greek myth attempts to explain the origins of the world, and details the lives and adventures of a wide variety of gods, goddesses, heroes, heroines and mythological creatures.
