Description

Wide-ranging, and exploring common themes in myths around the world, this guide includes an A-Z glossary of almost 600 mythological characters. The introduction explains the important role of myth in early civilizations, identifying core themes and discussing how various cultures supplied their own answers to these central questions of existence. Subsequent sections are organized on a geographical basis and look at myths in a loosely historical context, with comment on source material and ancient festivals.show more
