Editorial reviews

With the warm voice of actor Benjamin Soames, and musical accompaniment from greats like Holst and Wagner, this production of Tales from the Greek Legends is a treat for listeners of any age. Soames' gentle yet august voice guides listeners through the famous myths of Ancient Greece, beginning with the creation of the world and the origin of Zeus on through the journeys and battles of some of the more well-loved heroes and demigods. This audiobook is a great introduction to the stories of the ancient Greeks and features such classic tales as Jason and the Argonauts, Perseus and Medusa, and Hercules and Hydra.

Publisher's summary

The great myths of Ancient Greece have inspired mankind for centuries. Each of the heroes has to undergo trials of strength and courage to prove his valor against a host of monsters - the Minotaur, half man, half bull; Hydra, the many-headed serpent; Medusa the Gorgon. Meanwhile, the gods, lead by Zeus the Thunderer from his seat on Mount Olympus, watch, encourage, help - and sometimes hinder. In this new retelling, the tales come alive more vividly than ever with the added drama of popular music by Holst, Wagner, and others.
