Morford and Lenardon's best-selling introduction to classical mythology is a comprehensive survey focusing on the literary tradition of Greek and Roman mythology. It offers extensive translations of original mythological sources as well as comparative and interpretive approaches to the myths. In this package, Classical Mythology, 6/e is bundled with the Oxford World's Classic Myths from Mesopotamia: Creation, the Flood, Gilgamesh, and Others. These tales from the ancient civilizations of the "fertile crescent" stand alongside the Odyssey and the Arabian Nights in their popularity with an international audience at the dawn of recorded history. Here are myths of the Creation and of the Flood, as well as the fascinating Epic of Gilgamesh, a story of heroic failure in a moment of human weakness.
