I was happy to have the recommendation of Edith Hamilton's Mythology from my Goodreads friend, Beverly about a year ago, when I was looking for a book that would help me understand this subject better. And we recognize reference points for countless works of art, literature, and cultural inquiry--from Freud's Oedipus complex to Wagner's Ring Cycle of operas to Eugene O'Neill's Mourning Becomes Electra.Trading Address (Warehouse) Unit E, Vulcan Business Complex, Vulcan Road, Leicester, Leicestershire, LE5 3EB. Secondly, it begins with a brief commentary talking about the sources, her views, and some interesting observations then the retelling occurs and within retelling, there will be some commentary but mostly that story, which this cycle repeats quite often. They are my favourite, since they make between them almost a linear single story with cause-and-effect leading us from the creation of the world to its inevitable destruction. Como los demás, el mío también llego con un poco de daño en la portada, tiene unas pocas manchas, y las orillas están un poco dañadas, pero nada que opaque la portada o que haya llegado al interior de las páginas.

I would like to give this book five stars for its really complete and fairly narrated Greek mythos, but since it leaves out the whole rest of the world (except as above), I can only give two stars at most. It is not included in promotions available to our main range products, as stated in our terms of service. However, I really need to point this out again: this is supposed to be a comprehensive work of mythology as a whole! This is one only two such books I still have, 15 years out of high school: this and Strunk and White.

Her father began teaching her Latin when she was seven years old and soon added Greek, French, and German to her curriculum.

In 1930, when she was sixty-three years old, she published The Greek Way, in which she presented parallels between life in ancient Greece and in modern times. Hector’s young Son, Astyanax and Hecuba’s daughter, Polyxena are murdered after the defeat of Troy, Tantalus kills his own son and feeds him to the Gods, Atreus feeds his brother his own children… you get the point!

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. This is an ambitious work, which Edith Hamilton brings to life Greek and Roman Mythology (mainly and Norse partly), being a keystone of Western Culture. There was this one guy, whose name I'm forgetting at the moment, whom you can tell she just despised, but was too polite to say.
