Abstract:

The myths of ancient Greece as they have come down to us are dramatic and exciting stories involving many realistic and powerful characters. This beautiful presentation approaches Greek mythology in a new way: the world of the gods and of the heroes and some of the background history of the Greek civilization is unfolded clearly and simply by a series of over 100 magnificent colour photographs. The artists of ancient Greece illustrated the essential incidents of their mythology with remarkable humour and force, and some of the best examples of their work are included in this carefully chosen collection of pictures. An expert has told the stories of the myths alongside the illustrations and included many fascinating details, while the introduction describes how the myths developed.
