The Complete World of Greek Mythology
Greek myths are among the most complex and influential stories ever
told. From the first millennium BC until today, the myths have been
repeated in an inexhaustible series of variations and reinterpretations.
They can be found in the latest movies and television shows and in
software for interactive computer games.
This book combines a retelling of Greek myths with a comprehensive
account of the world in which they developed—their themes, their
relevance to Greek religion and society, and their relationship to the
The Dictionary of Classical Mythology
"A knowledge of classical mythology is indispensable
in understanding and appreciating much of the great literature,
sculpture, and painting of both the ancients and the moderns.
Unless we know the marvelous stories of the deities and heroes
of the ancients, their great literature and art as much
later work down to the present day will remain unintelligible.
Through the centuries from Chaucer, Spencer, Shakespeare, and
Milton on, not only the major writers but also hundreds of
lesser writers have retold the old tales or used them as a point
of departure for new interpretations in terms of contemporary
problems and psychology."--From author's Introduction
A collection of Greek and Roman myths arranged in sections on the
gods and early heroes, love and adventure stories, the Trojan
and a brief section on Norse mythology.

A Genealogical Chart of Greek Mythology
This unique work is the first comprehensive genealogical chart of
virtually all of the named figures of Greek mythology that can be shown to
be related. The product of more than 35 years of research, the book
includes a 72-page continuous chart that links 3,673 named figures into a
single "family tree" spanning 20 generations and an 80-page
index that provides a citation to an authoritative ancient source for each
The genealogy begins with Chaos and--based on works by Hesiod, Homer,
Aeschylus, Pindar, Bacchylides, Herodotus, Euripides, Apollodorus,
Pausanias, Diodorus Siculus, and scores of other ancient poets,
playwrights, and writers--continues down through the Titans, the gods,
legendary kings, and such well-known figures of literature as Odysseus,
Jason, Antigone, and Helen of Troy, as well as hundreds of obscure
figures, including their spouses, paramours, children, and descendants.
The chart shows all of the known relationships--parental, marital, and
extramarital--of each figure. In addition to furnishing a citation for
each relationship, the index provides brief descriptive information and
indicates the quadrant and page of the continuous chart where the
relationship is depicted. A two-page master chart illustrates the
relationships among the principal figures.
