From the myths of the creation of the universe to the death of Hercules, the author dwells on the great heroic cycles, such as those of Perseus, Theseus or the Argonauts, to which he incorporates other shorter adventures, such as those of Orpheus and Eurydice, that of King Midas, the misfortunes of Oedipus and the expeditions against Thebes or some "metamorphoses", such as those of Narcissus or Hyacinth. In this original book, now a classic, Lancelyn Green intertwines the myths and legends of Ancient Greece, thus respecting the way the ancient Greeks conceived their own mythology. A surprising, at the same time rigorous, approach to one of the most explored and fascinating universes of our culture.
