Overview


Travel back to a time when divine beings mixed with mortals, when heroes battled sorcerers, and nature was a mysterious realm ruled by beautiful and dangerous deities. These gods of Classical antiquity were far from ideal role models; their jealous pride and vengeful egos wrought havoc on the world, reflecting very human passions – and making for some truly compelling stories. From the legends of Hercules and the Titans, to tales of the underworld and the destruction of Troy, this elegant collection contains more than 40 fascinating tales retold by a variety of expert storytellers. Beautifully illustrated with dramatic scenes from master artists of the 16th to the 19th century, these enduring myths have formed a major part of Western culture for millennia and continue to capture our imaginations today.
