Product Description

Rewritten with all the poetry of the original intact, Heroes, Gods, and Monsters of the Greek Myths relays the myths of the past with delicacy, yet still keeps the core of the stories. Integrating notes that relate to our modern-day words-we call spiders Arachnids because of Arachne, we call female horses mares because of the moon-this short book will give readers an understanding of the stories so much of western civilization, literature, and culture rest upon. 210 pages, softcover, with glossary.

Please Note A few of the pen-and-ink sketched illustrations depict nudity.

Publisher's Description

The earth breeds giants and ogres of indescribable horror -- the heavens hold omnipotent gods and goddesses, abounding in courage, strength and wisdom.



Zeus, the almighty king of the gods, who cannot resist feminine beauty -- mortal or divine, and his jealous and vengeful wife, Hera.



Perseus, fearless mortal warrior, who takes on an impossible challenge: slaying the monstrous Medusa, whose glance turns men to stone.



The Minotaur, half-man and half-bull, the horrible fruit of a queen's unspeakable desire, who annually destroys the young victims sacrificed to his terrifying power.



A fantastic world of spells and curses, magic and mystery, forces that create and destroy at will.

    This was a great Christmas gift for my nephew. He wanted a book about the Greek gods. He liked that it had the origin of words list in the back. He is 10 years old.
