Most widely held works by Dorothy Margaret Stuart
The myths of Greece & Rome by H. A Guerber( Book )

42 editions published between 1938 and 2013 in English and held by 812 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This generously illustrated book of classical myths has become a classic itself, long prized for its simple, graphic, accurate retelling of the principal myths of Greece and Rome, and for its commentary on their origins and significance. The myths, as H. A. Guerber observes in her preface, "have inspired so much of the best thought in English literature that a knowledge of them is often essential to the understanding of what we need." But we have also come to love these stories of Pandora, of Echo and Narcissus, Orpheus and Eurydice, Jason, Hercules, Circe, Helen of Troy, and countless others for their own rich aesthetic qualities, and for their power to stir our imaginations. And today we are learning to look more closely at all mythologies for what they reveal to us of basic human nature and human aspiration. Beginning with myths involving the gods {u2014} Jupiter, Juno, Minerva, Apollo, Diana, Venus, Mercury, Mars, and others {u2014} and ending with the adventures of Ulysses and Aeneas, this rich assembly offers hours of compelling reading and abundant insight into one of the fundamental mythologies underlying Western culture. Sixty-four illustrations by such masters as Michelangelo, Raphael, Titian, Rubens, Canova, and Bernini add further classic touches to this time-honored work, which also includes an invaluable genealogical table and a map showing the location of the myths
