There was a period during my childhood when the characters of Greek mythology and knights of Camelot vied for my affections. The first were delivered primarily via the peerless Usborne Book of Greek Myths and Legends, over which I'd pore minutely (paying particular attention, for reasons perhaps best left unexplored, over the page devoted to the escapades of "wicked women"). * The Guardian *
