Roger Lancelyn Green (1918-87) was interested in myths and legends from childhood and, greatly influenced by Andrew Lang, made a study of the compiler of myths and legends while at Oxford. He became hereditary lord of the manors Poulton-Lancelyn and Lower Bebington and produced biographies, children's fiction and fifteen volumes of his own retellings of traditional stories.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 to younger listeners, while retaining the poetic quality of the ancient texts. TALES OF THE GREEK HEROES recounts the origins of the Greek pantheon, the adventures of Perseus, the seven labors of Heracles, and the voyage of Jason and the Argonauts. Edward Lewis reads with a clean precision, but some listeners may find his style stiff and pedantic. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
