Mythology Book Summary


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. Mythology succeeds like no other book in bringing to life for the modern reader the Greek, Roman, and Norse myths and legends that are the keystone of Western culture - the stories of gods and heroes that have inspired human creativity from antiquity to the present.

Mythology - Edith Hamilton, Aphrodite Trust & Apollo Trust Reviews

    I read this book when I was 10, then again at 16, and finally, when I was in graduate school. It enriched my general education and gave me insight into the great works of 20th century authors, artists, and scientists long before my peers. My teachers and professors thought I was smarter and better read than I was because of my knowledge of the stories and characters written about by Hamilton. What began as an interest in what seemed like scary fairy tales for adults, became knowledge that enriched every facet of my life. This book is basic information for understanding human nature, and relationships. The characters had influence on our culture and the thinking of many people who have shaped our understanding of our world- from Freud to Einstein.

    This book was a required reading for my freshman English class. I have fallen in love with this book and Mythology because of it. Edit h Hamilton touches on Roman, Greek, and even Norwegian mythology in this book. I recommend this as a reference book, leisure read, and a companion. This book helps to understand the references in a vast number of classic literary works by Shakespeare. Chaucer, Poe, etc. I have two hard copies and an Ebook for all my iDevices!
