Greek Myths and Legends - Book Review


The Usborne Illustrated Guide to Greek Myths and Legends, with illustrations by Rodney Matthews

Before you start reading this book you need to know what you can expect from it. You can learn about myths and legends. This colorful and illustrated book leads you to learn about Greek authors such as Homer (about 750-700 BC) The Iliad, The Odyssey, Hesiod (about 700 BC) Theogony, Bacchylides, and others.

Use Usborne Illustrated Guide to Greek Myths and Legends to learn how to pronounce Greek words.

They look long and very hard to pronounce, but there is a pronunciation guide for each name in the Who’s Who entries.

Sections in the book cover Greek myths and history, the creation, and what the world was like. You can learn about the Goddess Athene, Apollo and Artemis, Dionysus and Hermes, Prometheus and Mankind. Learn about Jason and the Golden Fleece and Perseus.

There is a chapter about After the Trojan War and another chapter on the Adventures of Odysseus. This book provides a literal fountain of knowledge for someone wanting to learn about Greek Myths and Legends.

The Greek Myths (Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition) and Treasury of Greek Mythology: Classic Stories of Gods, Goddesses, Heroes & Monsters
