The heroes and villains, gods and goddesses of ancient Greece have long inspired artists and, more recently, filmmakers to recreate their images. But how did the Greeks see them? And what stories lay behind the familiar names - from Aphrodite to Zeus - that so pervade our culture? Robert Graves' masterful yet accessible, "Greek Myths" vividly retells the adventures of the important gods and heroes and has become a classic reference book for both the serious scholar and the casual inquirer. This edition features lavish photographs and illustrations of the art of ancient Greece.
