    This book makes me feel smarter, says my GR friend in her review of this book I worked the same for me.Greek, Roman and Norse mythologies are so old because they have been in existence thousands and thousands of years even before Christ was born No wonder that many literary works have been based on them Even the names of the planets and the stars Even the names of my, mortal as they are, relatives and friends I have a nephew by a cousin in Canada whose name is Hector but he does not write

    Hm I declared August History Month and read, amongst various others, Bulfinch s Mythology of which I was quite disappointed In my research of his work and how it came to be I found a reference to this book by Edith Hamilton, who superseded Mr Bulfinch in most classrooms Thus I read this book in an attempt to find a better written encyclopedia Unfortunately, I did not succeed To clarify this book IS better written than the one by Mr Bulfinch One reason is that Edith Hamilton was a scho

    Another book that I had to read for a rolelay project at school It s funny because I wasn t intending to finish reading all the stories since we re only required to read Odysseus s story but I was too engrossed with the world they are in to stop Despite of the mature and explicit contents, I have learned a lot from it I just wish it didn t only contain bits of the actual stories nor just a mere summary I wanted to read moooore.

    I believe, deep in my heart, that everyone who has attended high school in the past twenty to thirty years or so in the United States, at least owned a ratty, most likely used copy of this work at one time or another This book has been on the required reading list of so many schools that nearly everyone has seen it, owned it, and opened it at least twice.This is one only two such books I still have, 15 years out of high school this and Strunk and White This is a good book to have lying arou

    I remember reading this over and over when I was in high school, just for my own pleasure Then I got to college, and took an actual mythology class, and the first thing the professor said was, I hope you all haven t been reading junk like Edith Hamilton What Well, most of his problem was with those bite sized little rundowns of the myths, which is what I liked about it It s a nice survey of Greek mythology, an introduction, if you will There are a few inaccuracies, and she barely mention

    This book, aside from fairy tales, has introduced me to the world beyond our reach I first had this book because back in high school, we were required to read it I never really understood back then why it seemed that I was one of the few who enjoyed reading this and majority of our class despised having to be given the assignment to read it I always found it entertaining Well, the first few stories were a bit tedious but it was a foundation that helped me understand the other tales so it was
