Early Greek Myth, Volume 1: A Guide to Literary and Artistic Sources (New)
by Gantz, Timothy
Publisher: Johns Hopkins Univ. Press
Book ID: 9780801853609, 0801853605
Please inquire for availability
Early Greek Myth is a much-needed handbook for scholars and others interested in the literary and artistic sources of archaic Greek myths -- and the only one of its kind available in English. Timothy Gantz traces the development of each myth in narrative form and summarizes the written and visual evidence in which the specific details of the story appear.

"Nothing short of remarkable . . . This book will certainly become a staple of all classical libraries for years to come." -- Bryn Mawr Classical Review

"There has long been a need for a comprehensive treatment -- accessible in English -- of the principal myths that one encounters while reading the major Greek texts. Early Greek Myth goes a long way to filling the gap." -- Mary R. Lefkowitz, Wellesley College

Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
