Gods and Heroes of Ancient Greece (The Pantheon Fairy Tale and Folklore Library)

Gustav Schwab


From fire-stealing Prometheus to scene-stealing Helen of Troy, from Jason and his golden fleece to Oedipus and his mom, this selection of vintage stories from Greek mythology demonstrates the inexhaustible energy of a undying cultural legacy.

listed here are Icarus flying too on the subject of the solar, amazing Hercules, Achilles and that darn heel, the Trojans and their wood horse, courageous Perseus and lovely Andromeda, wandering Odysseus and steadfast Penelope. Their tales and the tales of the strong gods and goddesses who punish and present, who fall in love with and are enraged through the people they've got created, are set forth easily yet movingly, in language that keeps the facility and drama of the unique works through Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, and Homer. In Gustav Schwab’s masterful retelling, they're made available to readers of all ages.
