Heroes, Gods and Monsters of Ancient Greek Mythology is a collection of classic archetypal Ancient Greek myths, including the stories of Jason, Perseus, Odysseus, Heracles, Oedipus and Theseus. These stories, which have had a great influence on thinkers throughout the centuries, inform popular culture even today. Here they are told as if by a fireside storyteller, detailing the horrific perils these heroes faced. An historical introduction explains who the Ancient Greeks were, describing their beliefs and customs. Footnotes throughout the book define and explain difficult words and concepts. There is a detailed index, with pronunciations of difficult names and places. The text is enlivened with black-and-white illustrations, and a map of ancient Greece.
