Publisher's Summary

Ten mythological heroes and stories from Greek mythology, for a delightful overview of the fundamentals of our culture. This is a selection of the most touching and inspiring stories from Ancient Greece; they have all inspired countless works of art through the centuries, often come from even more ancient myths, and are here retold in a detailed and lively manner.

This selection contains:

  • "The Myth of Apollo and Daphne" about the revenge of the cruel god Eros on Apollo;
  • "Atalanta", the story of the swiftest runner who ever was;
  • "Echo and Narcissus", about a nymph who angered a god;
  • "Endymion", a shepherd whose beauty made the goddess Diana fall in love;
  • "Icarus", this ageless story of failure at the hands of pride;
  • "King Midas", the famous cautionary tale;
  • "Orpheus and Eurydice", the ultimate tragic love story and one of the most famous Greek myths;
  • "Phaeton", a similar story to that of Icarus about the pride of wanting to be like a god;
  • "Pygmalion", a sculptor so skilled he fell in love with one of his creations;
  • "The Death of Adonis", one of Greece's most touching stories, in which a goddess hopelessly falls in love with a man whose sole passion is hunting.
