A Companion to Greek Mythology presents a series of essays that explore the phenomenon of Greek myth from its origins in shared Indo-European story patterns and the Greeks’ contacts with their Eastern Mediterranean neighbours through its development as a shared language and thought-system for the Greco-Roman world.
  • Features essays from a prestigious international team of literary experts
  • Includes coverage of Greek myth’s intersection with history, philosophy and religion
  • Introduces readers to topics in mythology that are often inaccessible to non-specialists
