Gods & heroes; myths & epics of ancient Greece by Gustav Schwab( Book )

650 editions published between 1800 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 2,849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Mythen by Gustav Schwab( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in German and held by 90 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Im Jahre 1838 erschien die Erstausgabe von Gustav Schwabs "Sagen des klassischen Altertums". Solche haben Tausende in ihrer Jugend kaum weniger angeregt darin gelesen wie in den "Märchen aus 1001 Nacht" oder in Daniel Defoes unsterblichen Roman "Robinson Crusoe". Durch Schwabs Werk sind in über 150 Jahren Zehntausende schon in ihrer Jugend mit dem Bildungsgut der antiken Sagenwelt in Berührung gekommen. Schwab hat die großen und kleinen Quellflüsse antiker Sagenüberlieferungen in seinem Werk wie in einem antiken Sammelbecken zusammenlaufen lassen und es ist ihm gelungen aus Stoffen unterschiedlicher Herkunft eine gerundete und einprägsame Darstellung zu schaffen, die in Ihrer Art einzigartig ist und über die Hermann Hesse schrieb: "Hier können wir harmlos und unbeirrt im Land der Griechen und Trojer wandeln, von Zeus und Ikaros in gutem Deutsch und ohne Noten und ohne Kommentare lesen"
