Description

For almost 150 years, Bulfinch’s Mythology has been the text by which the great tales from classical antiquity, the Norse and Asian traditions, and the age of chivalry have been known. Here are lively versions of the myths of Zeus, Hera, and their cohorts on Mt. Olympus; the legends of the Trojan War and the epic wanderings of Ulysses and Aeneas; the tales of the joys of Valhalla and the furies of Thor; the adventures of King Arthur and his knights; and the sagas of Beowulf and Robin Hood.

As Thomas Bulfinch himself wrote, “Without a knowledge of mythology much of the elegant literature of our own language cannot be understood and appreciated.” With stories that are eminently readable, Bulfinch’s Mythology gives us just that knowledge.

About the Author:Thomas Bulfinch, in his day job, was a clerk in the Merchant’s Bank of Boston, an undemanding position that afforded him ample leisure time in which to pursue his other interests.
