From the cover: “The legends of ancient Greece have come down through the ages in various permutations, never failing to entrance generation upon generation of both children and adults. Though originally handed down through story and song and later by the classical poets and dramatists, these myths have been condensed, simplified and modernized to the utmost — from high-brow literature to comic books, in television series and films, in plays and operas, and of course in the fine and decorative arts, proving their archetypal and unchanging significance. This handsome volume presents the myths in the most accessible form. The stories are told simply but intriguingly, with a genuine appreciation of their various natures and sources, and all are amply illustrated with photographs of sculptures, red- and black-figure vases, paintings, the decorative arts and the beautiful archaeological sites of Greece.”
