Summary
Full of action, romance, betrayal, passion, violence, and tragedy, the timeless ancient Greek and Roman myths make great reading. With a cast of unique characters and unbelievable story lines, classical mythology explains phenomena such as creation, weather, nature, and the universe with unparalleled drama. The Everything Classical Mythology Book is an entertaining and educational guide that explains all the great myths and explores how they have influenced language, art, music, psychology, and even today's popular culture. The book tells the fascinating stories of the gods' rise to power on Mount Olympus and of their frequent clashes with larger-than-life heroes. Rounded out with a helpful glossary, an index of characters, and many reading resources, this action-packed new addition to the Everything series brings classical mythology to life!
