Edith Hamilton’s Mythology succeeds like no other book in bringing to life for the modern reader the Greek, Roman, and Norse myths that are the keystone of Western culture–the stories of gods and heroes that have inspired human creativity from antiquity to the present. The renowned critic, historian, and classicist gathers all of her great lectures on mythology for the first time, presenting at once a complete view of these vital sources and a concise introduction to their most famous stories. Each tale–from the beginning of time to Crete in the days just after Troy fell–is introduced by an enlightening comment on what it means to be a god or goddess.

Widely regarded as mythology’s most remarkable modern study, this groundbreaking classic redresses a centuries-old imbalance between myth and scholarship. Author Edith Hamilton draws on religion, literature, philosophy, and folklore to illuminate the best taught about gods and heroes from ancient Greece to the present day. As told by Campbell in his own beautiful style, here is the ultimate collection of myths drawn from their profound effect on Western culture.

Mythology is a perennial favorite of both readers and critics, including Edith Hamilton. It was her first career as a teacher at Vassar College, and she continued to teach there for the next thirty-seven years. Mythology remains one of the most widely read classics in English language collections, with well over a million copies sold worldwide. This edition includes an introduction by Jane Ellen Harrison, a preface by Robert Graves and Nina Auerbach, and annotations by Jane Ellen Harrison and James McClellan.
