Full description for Apollodorus' Library and Hyginus' Fabulae

  • By offering, for the first time in a single edition, complete English translations of Apollodorus' Library and Hyginus' Fabulae -- the two most important surviving "handbooks" of classical mythography -- this volume enables readers to compare the twos versions of the most important Greek and Roman myths. A General Introduction sets the Library and Fabulae into the wider context of ancient mythography; introductions to each text discuss in greater detail issues of authorship, aim, and influence. A general index, an index of people and geographic locations, and an index of authors and works cited by the mythographers are also included.
