Product description

Classical Mythology: Images and Insights grew out of the authors' many years of teaching of Greek and Roman myth to undergraduates at California State University, Sacramento. Unique among textbooks on this topic, it approaches the study of myth through complete works of Greco-Roman literature, including six complete Greek dramas and generous excerpts from the narratives of Homer, Hesiod, Virgil, and Ovid, and through carefully chosen examples of Classical works of art, both painting and sculpture. Combining literary masterpieces with the visual arts, this integrative approach offers readers a comprehensive experience with both cognitive and aesthetic appeal.
