Here retold in all their dramatic power are some of the most exciting and influential of all Greek myths: the epic struggle of the Trojan War, the wanderings of Odysseus, the tragic destiny of Oedipus and the heroic adventures of Herakles, Theseus, Perseus and Jason. The author introduces the complex pantheon of Olympian gods and goddesses, describing their attitudes, genealogies and often comic relationships and illustrates the personalities and their stories by drawing upon the artistry of the ancient culture which created them. A concluding chapter reviews the powerful and continuing imaginative legacy of Greek myth, from Botticelli to Freud. This book contains 50 illustrations.
