Product Description

One of 19th-century America's greatest authors recounts timeless tales from Greek mythology in Tanglewood Tales. Nathaniel Hawthorne's evocative interpretations of traditional stories about heroes, sorceresses, kings, and other legendary characters provide young readers and listeners with a spellbinding introduction to classic myths. The adventures begin with "The Minotaur," the tale of an Athenian prince's conquest of a monstrous half-man, half-bull. Other stories include "The Pygmies," concerning a friendly giant and his small-minded neighbors; "The Dragon's Teeth," recounting the birth of a team of warriors and the founding of a city; "Circe's Palace," in which an enchantress matches wits with the trickster Ulysses; "The Pomegranate Seeds," a tale of the underworld; and "The Golden Fleece," the story of an aspiring king and his quest for the shining symbol that will win a throne.

Author Bio

Author of The Scarlet Letter and The House of the Seven Gables, Nathaniel Hawthorne (1804–64) wrote the stories that lie at the heart of the American Romantic movement. His novels' portraits of colonial life reflect his Puritan heritage, and his short story collections, A Wonder-Book for Girls and Boys and its successor, Tanglewood Tales, consist of adaptations of Greek myths.
