    DescriptionClassical Mythology, Fifth Edition, will appeal to anyone interested in ancient Greek and Roman mythology. This best-selling book is the most comprehensive introduction to classical mythology available. It features a dynamic combination of poetic narratives and enlightening commentary; extensive translations of original mythological sources, including the complete Homeric Hymns and other works by Homer, Hesiod, Ovid, and a variety of Greek and Roman writers; and insightful and accessible discussion of classical myths in their historical and cultural settings, as well as their survival in literature, art, music, and film. The revised Fifth Edition includes enhanced clarity and readability through careful use of abundant heads and streamlined writing; expanded discussion of archaeological evidence supporting events described in myths; a new interior design and a substantially expanded black-and-white and color art program, chosen to provide a comprehensive view of the interaction between word and image; and a quick-reference glossary/index to help readers identify names, places, and events.
