9780007127528: Classical Mythology (Collins Dictionary of) (Mythology Reference)

The most comprehensive, A–Z handbook for Greek and Roman mythology available in paperback, and written in an unpedantic and approachable style that draws from the original sources from the 9th cnetury BC to the 2nd century AD.

Based almost exclusively on original sources, the Collins Dictionary of Classical Mythology is the only comprehensive, alphabetically arranged handbook of Greek and Roman mythology available in paperback. It is intended both as a collection of stories to be read for their own sake and as a companion to the innumerable works of literature and art which draw on classical myth for subject matter, themes and imagery.

Each tale is told as completely as possible in one place, so that a narrative does not have to be pieced together out of several entries. Plentiful cross-references are provided to help in tracing the complex interrelationships between the myths.

Review:

‘It will soon find its place among the standard reference works of mythology. The book is a valuable aid for the ‘layman’ in the field…but it also fills a real need for the student who has specialized in Classics.’ – Classical World.
