An inspiration to many centuries of writers, the characters that people the Ancient Greek myths are a spellbinding mixture of gods and heroes, monsters and magicians. some, like Thesus and Agamemmon, are probably based on historical figures. Others have been invented to explain the wonders of nature, the passage of the sun across the sky or the beautiful song of the nightingale. This delightful collection brings together all the most familiar tales with some that are less well known.
Caution: This book is illustrated with masterpieces including many nude paintings.
