The legends and fables of the ancient world contain many of the most enthralling stories of adventure, revenge, love and war in the whole of world literature. And though we now term these "myths" they were, of course, part of the religion of the Greeks and Romans. The legends were handed down from generation to generation by word of mouth long before the art of writing was invented: later, the works of such great writers as Theocritus, Homer, Virgil, Ovid and Apuleius were given permanent form in translations from the Greek and Latin. Stories from these works, which have been an unflagging source of inspiration to writers and artists of succeeding generations, are here retold in simple but graphic style. We learn how the stables of Augeas were cleaned by Hercules, how Narcissus fell in love with his own reflection, the reason for the Trojan war, and a description of the wanderings and trials of Odysseus, to name but a few of the better known myths to be found in this book. The Myths of Greece and Rome was first published in 1907 and has been in continuous demand ever since. It has been extensively revised in the light of archaeological discoveries, and greatly augmented throughout. Those seeking an exciting and reliable guide to this world of gods and heroes will find it as entertaining as it is invaluable. Size: 8vo. Codice libro della libreria 139001
