"These are the strangest tales of love, war, betrayal and heroism ever told, here retold by Jenny March, who also shows how they echo through the works of much later writers, from Spenser and Shakespeare to Camus and Yeats. All the heroes, monsters and villains, gods and goddesses of classical civilization are here; all the stories of the Greek tragedies - Oedipus, Medea, Antigone and many more; all the events of the Trojan wars and of Odysseus and Aeneas' epic journeys; and the founding of Athens and of Rome." "With illustrations and maps of legendary Greece and of the constellations, The Penguin Book of Classical Myths is a vivid guide to the world's most unforgettable myths and legends."--BOOK JACKET.
