About the Author:

Roger Lancelyn Green (1918-1987) became interested in myths and legends at an early age. Frequently absent from school due to illness, he spent his time browsing through the books of the magnificent Queen Anne library at his home in England. He loved fairy tales, adventure stories, and traditional legends from around the world. While at Oxford he made a special study of fairy tales and myths. He published a large number of books, but it is his skill as a master storyteller that gives the tales their freshness alongside their familiarity.

From AudioFile:

While by no means the most scholarly collection of Greek myths and legends, Roger Lancelyn Green's retellings are among the most accessible, particularly for younger listeners, while retaining the poetic quality of the ancient texts. A TALE OF TROY retells the story of Homer's ILIAD. Edward Lewis reads with a clean precision, but some listeners may find his style stiff and pedantic.
