Product Description

The influence of Greek and Roman mythology has spread throughout Europe, America, North Africa, the Middle East, and elsewhere, a testimony to the universal appeal of its stories.

Encyclopedia of Greek and Roman Mythology examines the best-known figures of Greek and Roman mythology together with the great works of classical literature that are the sources for our mythological understanding. In 365 A-to-Z entries, this encyclopedia presents ancient mythology from a literary perspective and features numerous illustrations from both ancient and modern works of fine art to show how myths have been transmitted in visual form through the ages.

Entries include:

  • Greek and Roman gods and heroes, such as Athena, Achilles, Apollo, Heracles, Odysseus, Orpheus, Poseidon, and Zeus
  • Mythological creatures, such as Cerberus, the Gorgons, the Minotaur, and Pegasus
  • Great works of literature that provide the sources for classical mythology, including the plays of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides, the Aeneid of Virgil, the Iliad and the Odyssey of Homer, and the Metamorphoses of Ovid, and more.

    Grades 9 & up. 560 pages, paperback.
