Mythology Timeless Tales of Gods and Heroes

FREE DOWNLOAD Mythology Timeless Tales of Gods and Heroes 100 Retells these stories with brilliant clarity but shows us how the ancients saw their own place in the world and how their themes echo in our consciousness today An essential part of every home library Mythology is the definitive volume for anyone who wants to know the key dramas the primary character. Edith Hamilton may have written Mythology Timeless Tales of Gods and Heroes than a half century ago and she may have been fairly ancient when she did so but she still put out one seriously readable bookHamilton took from the best sources to cobble together slick summaries of all your old time myth favorites Before giving each mythical story s highlights she details the different writers who created a version of it and explains the ualities of the best ones Sometimes she berates the lesser attempts and I appreciated the balance especially since she explains her critiue Now having said I have to note the caveat that this is not a scholarly work This is a summary a boiling down a sugar coating of a topic that frankly could have been presented in a much academic dry manner I m glad it wasn t These are not cursory run throughs They re full of detail and color The main issue with a book with that title is that you expect a wide ranging survey of the topic This however is almost entirely about the Greek Myths The Roman versions are only mentioned because the Romans stole their myths wholesale from the Greeks Aside from that we get a very superficial mention of the Norse myths that takes up maybe the last 5% of the book Nothing else in all the rest of humanity is even slightly touched upon Disappointing But if you want an easy fun read on the Greek stuff this is the book for you

FREE DOWNLOAD Mythology Timeless Tales of Gods and Heroes 100 For nearly seventy years readers have chosen this book above all others to discover the thrilling enchanting and fascinating world of Western mythology From Odysseus's adventure filled journey to the Norse god Odin's effort to postpone the final day of doom Edith Hamilton's classic collection not only. 4 StarsWow So this took me almost a full year to get through And no I m not actually joking shocking I know GR says I started this in Augustof 2018 But what can I say Aside from the fact that I am probably just too dumb and too uncultured to truly enjoy this thing to it s full capacityI m also not a pretentious asshole who is going to pretend I lurved it to pieces just to look smart And no I am not suggesting anyone who says they love this is a liar One of my BBF GR buds Ana O really does love this But she s also way smarter and interesting than me so there s that Don t get me wrong though I really enjoyed the book as a whole especially the stunning artwork as I m a sucker for pretty pictures but not gonna lie I got confused by all the names and incest and relationships a lot And I am one of those people who will flip back to the family tree or index pages to refresh my memory which is probably one of the many reasons why it took me so long to read this But I digress I love that I read this because it definitely taught me that a lot of things I thought I knew about mythology was totally incorrect But that s what happens when you trust the accuracy of Hollywood Marvel and Percy Jackson as applied to REAL mythology My bad I also love knowing that I now have this beautiful book on my shelves for future reference So I consider this a win and I m glad I thoughtfully read every page instead of rushing through it Thanks Ana for the recommendation
