Abstract:

From fire-stealing Prometheus to scene-stealing Helen of Troy, from Jason and his golden fleece to oedipus and his mother, this collection of classic tales from Greek mythology demonstrates the inexhaustible vitality of a timeless cultural legacy. Here are Icarus flying too close to the sun, mighty Hercules, Achilles and that darn heel, the Trojans and their wooden horse, brave Perseus and beautiful Andromeda, wandering Odysseus and steadfast Penelope. Their stories and the stories of the powerful gods and goddesses who punish and reward, who fall in love with and are enraged by the humans they have created, are set forth simply but movingly, in language that retains the power and drama of the original works by aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, and Homer. In Gustav Schwab's masterful retelling, they are made accessible to readers of all ages. From the Trade Paperback edition.
