About this deal

In 1930, when she was sixty-three years old, she published The Greek Way, in which she presented parallels between life in ancient Greece and in modern times. It has been reissued since then by several publishers, including its 75th anniversary illustrated edition.

Don't get me wrong though, I really enjoyed the book as a whole - especially the stunning artwork, as I'm a sucker for pretty pictures - but not gonna lie, I got confused by all the names and incest and relationships a lot. This is a good book to have lying around the house, not because you need it every day, but because it is a great reference for things like settling family bets and cheating on the brown questions in Trivial Pursuit. Mythology" even comes with a bunch of nifty illustrations, done by someone with the improbable name of Steele Savage (with a great fondness for winged horses, apparently).At home, Hamilton was a recipient of many honorary degrees and awards, including election to the American Academy of Arts and Letters.

Thus, I've tried to evaluate each book on its own particular merits, and also give some idea of how it stacks up relative to the others. There are a ton of stories here so just pace yourself and don’t overwhelm yourself as there are a lot of names. As a preface, in the first half of the novel, I knew most of these stories, as I've read a longer account of those stories from Stephen Fry’s Mythology series which begins at the Beginning to Troy (so far).But before I let it go, I picked up Hamilton's book, and checked out the index entries for Eumenides (248) and Furies (see Erinyes) - so to Erinyes, where among other entries was (Orestes pursued by, 246-248) - which closed the circle. There was once a king who had three daughters, all lovely maidens … Which sounds like Once upon a time there was a …. p>Sign up to the Little, Brown newsletter for news of upcoming publications, competitions and updates from our authors. Even the ones I mentioned above I thought were engaging just some events were skimmed over too fast.

This story, along with a few others, got me wondering why no one has created any horror adaptations of the Greek Myths. uk/landing-page/little-brown-book-group/little-brown-book-group-company-information/">Little, Brown Book Group Limited. It looks really cool and considering the other reviews my book wasn’t damaged at all and arrived it excellent shape! Opinions are great, and she often accompanies them with some interesting facts, but I feel like a little more subtlety or, on occasion, impartiality would’ve made it a little less jarring. This 75th anniversary edition of a classic bestseller is stunningly illustrated and designed to enchant fans of Greek, Roman, and Norse mythology at all ages.And she made the claim in one of the intros that the Greeks' mythology was different from the others, because reasons. Durante mais de 20 anos fez carreira como diretora numa escola para raparigas - onde defendeu a importância da educação das mulheres. I knew that before purchasing it but still somewhat a shame, that there are never revised versions that included much more Norse Mythology. These were followed by The Prophets of Israel (1936), Witness to the Truth: Christ and His Interpreters (1949), Three Greek Plays, translations of Aeschylus and Euripides (1937), Mythology (1942), The Great Age of Greek Literature (1943), Spokesmen for God (1949) and Echo of Greece (1957). Hamilton took from the best sources to cobble together slick summaries of all your old time myth favorites.

Primeiro pensei lê-lo como preparação para o curso, depois imaginei que lhe daria uso obrigatório na licenciatura, e a dada altura percebi que, até aos dias de hoje, nunca terminei um livro que fosse forçada a ler. What stood out for me in this audiobook was the transparency of its sources as it retold the Greek myths.Hamilton traveled to Greece in 1957 to be made an honorary citizen of Athens and to see a performance in front of the Acropolis of one of her translations of Greek plays. The unfortunate bit is that she always channels her anger towards the women, who are often unaware that they are getting it on with the almighty himself, and/or the children that they give birth to.
