Summary

Summary

Gods and heroes are brought to life in this masterful retelling of the legends and tales of ancient Greece.

Here are the great stories of the Heroic Age, from the myths of the making of the universe to the death of Heracles—also called Hercules. Set against the colorful background of Greece and the Aegean, the adventures of heroes such as Perseus the Gorgon-slayer, Dionysus, Theseus, and Jason and the Argonauts once again come to life.

In this skillful retelling, these tales are as vivid and exciting as when they were first told three thousand years ago. With just the right levels of complexity, action, and adventure, this volume will satisfy listeners of all ages. The story of ancient Greece is continued in The Tale of Troy.

Author Bio: Roger Lancelyn Green

Roger Lancelyn Green (1918–1987) became interested in myths and legends at an early age. Frequently absent from school due to illness, he spent his time browsing through the books of the magnificent Queen Anne library at his home in England. He loved fairy tales, adventure stories, and traditional legends from around the world. While at Oxford he made a special study of fairy tales and myths. He published a large number of books, but it is his skill as a master storyteller that gives the tales their freshness alongside their familiarity.
