In centuries long past, which reached their summit in the few years of the Great Age of Pericles, literature, science, philosophy, art, democracy, religion -- the main achievements of the modern world -- developed almost overnight, full blown in many cases and as perfect as they could ever be. Edith Hamilton has illumined it for us with a spirit similar to its own, a complete sympathy and identification, and in a style that is an echo of the Greek grace, clarity, simplicity and warmth.
Greek and Roman mythology is quite generally supposed to show us the way the human race thought and felt untold ages ago. Through it, according to this view, we can retrace the path from civilized man who lives so far from nature, to man who lived in close companionship with nature; and the real interest of the myths is that they lead us back to a time when the world was young and people had a connection with the earth, with trees and seas and flowers and hills, unlike anything we ourselves can feel.
The world-renowned classic that has enthralled and delighted millions of readers with its timeless tales of gods and heroes.Edith Hamilton's MYTHOLOGY succeeds like no other book in bringing to life for the modern reader the Greek, Roman, and Norse myths that are the keystone of Western culture--the stories of gods and heroes that have inspired human creativity from antiquity to the present.
