Classical MythologyBook - 2000
The central figures of classical mythology are described by expert Arthur Cotterell in Classical Mythology with wit and authority, and ancient legends are re-told as spell-binding narratives that offer intriguing insight into accounts of past ages. The myths of the Classical world have inspired generations of painters and poets, and this beautiful encyclopedia is illustrated with a wealth of imagery created over a period of fifteen centuries; both fine art paintings and specially-commissioned contemporary works adorn these fascinating tales.
