From the cover: “To discover the land of Zeus, of Apollo, of Heracles, of Eros is to step back into the Greece which gave birth to Western civilization, and from which arose the powerful myths which were among man's earliest and certainly his most vivid and imaginative attempts to explain the creation of the universe and the shape and meaning of his world. In this book the author has introduced the reader to the myths in a lively and accurate way, choosing to group them in the areas traditionally associated with the stories.”
