A mythography, a compendium of Greek mythology, by the poet and writer Robert Graves. In a work that has become a classic reference book for both the serious scholar and the casual inquirer.

Graves retells the adventures of the important gods and heroes worshipped by the ancient Greeks. Each entry provides a full commentary which examines problems of interpretation in both historical and anthropological terms, and in light of contemporary research. Each myth is presented in the voice of a narrator writing under the Antonines, such as Plutarch or Pausanias, with citations of the classical sources. Each myth is followed by an interpretation of its origin and significance, in the terms of Graves' other essays on mythology, such as The White Goddess.


Volume I - 342 pages; Volume II - 343 pages. Illustrated with maps on endpapers and numerous black and white drawings.
