Description
Every culture uses myths to help shape and explain our views of man's origin, the world's creation, and the afterlife. In this beautifully bound and arranged book—with 420 images in color and black and white—Christopher Dell gathers together themes and stories from every part of the globe to show how myths share common patterns, and how they express human imagination in all its diversity. Here are such unforgettable stories as the twelve labors of Heracles, Oedipus and the Sphinx, the fall of Troy, King Arthur obtaining Excalibur, the adventures of Gilgamesh, and the Quest for the Holy Grail, alongside many other compelling tales not as well known. A directory at the end of the book summarizes the principal types of myth from around the world—Native American, Judeo-Christian, Greek, Nordic, Aboriginal, and more—and includes family trees of various divinities.
