Product description

From the Back Cover

Classical Myth, 5e illuminates the cultural context of classical myth and explains Greek and Roman myths in a lively and engaging manner. This comprehensive text offers lively translations of the best ancient sources for classical myth, as well as many illustrations, both ancient and modern. Based on the latest scholarship, the text provides students with information on the influence of Near Eastern myth, as well as concise sidebar essays that chronicle the legacy of Greek and Roman stories up to the present day.

The fifth edition includes:

·   A new "Observations" section on archaeology and the mystery of the Trojan War

·   Expanded coverage on Rome to reflect new ideas and directions in today's scholarship

·   New Perspectives on Star Wars, Tolkien, Atlantis, and Seamus Heaney.

·   Enhanced focus on the physical setting for classical myth, with a new city plan of ancient Rome.

·   More images of art and artifacts to illustrate the myths and legends

·   An updated table of contents to enhance easy navigation through the text
