Description

There are drawings by Steele Savage, some full-page (in my Mentor edition of sometime after 1970, which was at the time the forty-fourth printed of Hamilton's book, first printed in 1940. One could add many more but overall in this book one can see clearly the basis of a civilisation that was destined to become great and provide Europe with its mind and soul.

My copy of Odyssey (translated by Samuel Butler) does use archaic language and I can live with that.I based the comparative evaluation on three main general criteria - readability, accuracy, and scope (breadth and depth of coverage); I also looked at how each book handled two particular examples -- the life of Hercules and the story of Philomela and Procne. She was born in Dresden in 1867 but grew up in Connecticut and Pennsylvania, where she also got her BA and MA degrees for which she won the Mary E. Mythology: Timeless Tales of Gods and Heroes, written by American author Edith Hamilton and first published in 1942, is a comprehensive overview of Greek, Roman, and Norse mythology. Though her first book wasn't published until she was in her sixties, her work achieved great popular success.

This exciting new deluxe, large-format hardcover edition, published in celebration of the book's 75th anniversary, will be beautifully packages and fully-illustrated throughout with all-new, specially commissioned four-color art, making it a true collector's item. I haven't attempted Ovid or Hesiod, but this is where I would undoubtedly start whenever decide to do so. Hamilton proves herself extremely knowledgeable, not only with regard to the Greek Myths but, about the times in which they were composed as well.You end up second-guessing yourself - maybe the classic status is causing you to be unduly deferential. 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.
