Great preview of Greek Epic Tradition!!

The stories in this book give an elaborate overview of Greek myths as well as a look into the many examples of Tragic hero present in GreoRoman mythology. From Odysseus to Aeaneas to Jason to Agamemnon to Orestes to Oedipus The greeks have known tragic story after story and this book does an excellent job of covering them all; from the more well known myths to lesser known myths the book presents a vivid presentation of the two cultures and their emphasis on the importance of the hero. As well the book gives a good amount of extra information on the heroes as well as parrale structure between myths and the effect that they have had on present day culture. A purely awesome book and one of the best in the series. I would highly recomend the rest of Timelife's Myth and Mankind series as well.
