Overview

Gods and Heroes of Ancient Greece by Gustav Schwab

From fire-stealing Prometheus to scene-stealing Helen of Troy, from Jason and his golden fleece to Oedipus and his mother, this collection of classic tales from Greek mythology demonstrates the inexhaustible vitality of a timeless cultural legacy. These stories of heroes and powerful gods and goddesses are set forth simply and movingly, in language that retains the power and drama of the original works by Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, and Homer.

Introduction by Werner Jaeger
With black-and-white illustrations throughout

Part of the Pantheon Fairy Tale and Folklore Library

This book has good stories and interesting characters but is too long. Gustav Schwab is a good author. This book has some of the better stories from Greek Mythology, including The Argonauts, Prometheus, and a lot more. I can't say it's the best but it is good.
