The Greek myths by Robert Graves( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a work that has become a classic reference book for both the serious scholar and the casual inquirer, Graves retells the adventures of the important gods and heroes worshipped by the ancient Greeks. Each entry provides a full commentary which examines problems of interpretation in both historical and anthropological terms, and in light of contemporary research. Endymion, Pelops, Daedalus, Pygmalion, we recognize the names, but what are the stories behind these and other familiar gods from the Greek pantheon; names that recur throughout the history of European culture? Drawing on an enormous range of sources, Robert Graves has brought together elements of these myths in simple narrative form. He retells the adventures of the most important gods and heroes of the ancient Greeks. His work has become the reference for the serious scholar as well as the casual inquirer
