About this deal

Since its original publication by Little, Brown and Company in 1942, Edith Hamilton's Mythology has sold millions of copies throughout the world and established itself as a perennial bestseller in its various available formats: hardcover, trade paperback, mass market paperback, and e-book.

The Roman versions are only mentioned, because the Romans stole their myths wholesale from the Greeks.

John William Waterhouse, Echo and Narcissus, in which Echo (who can only echo what other people say) fails to save Narcissus from drowning himself while admiring his own wonderful visage. Mais de mil anos antes de Cristo, na orla da extremidade oriental do Mediterrâneo, havia uma grande cidade muito rica e poderosa, sem rival à superfície da Terra.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. It is unlikely that I read the entire thing, since it can be assigned in pieces and that is probably what my teacher did. You got to be kidding, I remember the basics and it has already helped in my classic reads when these figures show up and if my memory fails, I can look here as a reference.I like how Edith Hamilton represents the gods, she’s clearly not a fan of most of them, also her explanation of the Eleusinian Mysteries is the clearest I have come across so far. Hamilton's education continued at Miss Porter's School in Farmington, Connecticut and at Bryn Mawr College near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, from which she graduated in 1894 with an M. I was fortunate to have grown up in a time when bookshelf sets of stories were the norm in family homes. And we recognize reference points for countless works for art, literature and culture inquiry--from Freud's Oedipus complex to Wagner's Ring Cycle of operas to Eugene O'Neill's Mourning Becomes Electra. Well, most of his problem was with those bite-sized little rundowns of the myths, which is what I liked about it.
