    DescriptionFor decades readers have chosen this book above all others to discover the thrilling, enchanting and fascinating world of Western mythology. From Odysseus's adventure-filled journey to the Norse god Odin's effort to postpone the final day of doom, Edith Hamilton's classic collection not only retells these stories with brilliant clarity but shows us how the ancients saw their own place in the world and how their themes echo in our consciousness today. An essential part of every home library, MYTHOLOGY is the definitive volume for anyone who wants to know the key dramas, the primary characters, the triumphs, failures, fears and hopes first narrated thousands of years ago - and still spellbinding to this day.

    Author Information
    Edith Hamilton (12 August 1867-31 May 1963) was an American educator and author who was recognised as the greatest woman classicist of her time. The New York Times has described her as the classical scholar who 'brought into clear and brilliant focus the Golden Age of Greek life and thought...with Homeric power and simplicity in her style of writing'.
