Product description

This new edition is a completely rewritten and revised version of Rose's original, seminal, text. Adding a huge amount of new material, Robin Hard incorporates the results of the latest research into his authoritative accounts of all the gods and heroes. The narrative framework of the book includes helpful signposting so that the book can be used as work of reference, and alongside the narrative chapters, it includes full documentation of the ancient sources, maps, and genealogical tables. Illustrated throughout with numerous photographs and line drawings, it will remain the definitive account of ancient Greek mythology for generations to come.

Review quote

'The great virue of this book lies in its comprehensiveness ... [yet] it is also very readable ... [it is] accessible for the general reader rather than solely for the academic, although its thoroughness makes this highly recommended as a reference book for the latter as well.' - Journal of Hellenic Studies 'This is a worthy successor to Rose.' - Brian Sparkes, JACT, 3rd series, no. 2, 2004 'This is a remarkable book that works on several different levels, whether you want to read the myths and their context and explanation, or simply use it as a basic reference book.' - Minerva
