Description

The great myths of the world create meaning out of the fundamental events of human existence - birth, death, conflict, loss, reconciliation, the cycle of the seasons. They speak to us of life itself in voices still intelligible yet compellingly strange. Alone, each is a powerful story, but together, the world's myths evoke patterns and raise issues that apply as much today as they did thousands of years ago.

Developed with this comprehensive view in mind, World Mythology is an authoritative collection of the most important mythological traditions. Combining the impact of pure narrative with the background necessary for understanding this fascinating subject. Superbly illustrated with more than 500 color photographs, this is the most accessible guide yet produced to the limitless heritage of the world's imagination.
