*The definitive and comprehensive edition of Robert Graves's classic retelling of the Greek myths*'Icarus disobeyed his father's instructions and began soaring towards the sun, rejoiced by the lift of his great sweeping wings. Presently, when Daedalus looked over his shoulder, he could no longer see Icarus; but scattered feathers floated on the waves below...'These are the greatest stories ever told - the labours of Hercules, the voyage of the Argonauts, Theseus and the minotaur, Midas and his golden touch, the Trojan War and Odysseus's journey home - brought together into one epic and unforgettable story. Ideal for the first time reader, it can be read as a single page-turning narrative, while full commentaries as well as a comprehensive index of names make it equally valuable for anyone seeking an authoritative and detailed account of the spectacular stories that make up the bedrock of Western literature.The Greek Myths is a classic among classics, a treasure trove of extraordinary tales and a masterful work of literature in its own right.

“a guide for students of classics?”

I bought this as a present for a nephew of mine.
On receiving it, I realised that it is too advanced for him. The purpose seems to be to inform the reader, but not necessarily to entertain. The text is interspersed... More
