Description
The longtime headmistress of the Bryn Mawr School in Baltimore, Edith Hamilton (1868–1963) was a classicist of world renown—indeed, she regarded as the high point of her life a 1957 ceremony in which King Paul of Greece named her an honorary citizen of Athens. Since its original publication in 1942, her superb Mythology has established itself as a perennial bestseller in its various hardcover, trade paperback, mass market paperback, and e-book formats. It succeeds like no other book in bringing to life for the modern reader the Greek, Roman, and Norse myths and legends that are the keystone of Western culture—the stories of gods and heroes that have inspired human creativity from antiquity to the present.

"No one in modern times has shown us more vividly than Edith Hamilton 'the glory that was Greece and the grandeur that was Rome.' Filtering the golden essence from the mass of classical literature, she proved how applicable to our daily lives are the humor and wisdom of more than 2,000 years ago."—NYTimes

"Edith Hamilton retells the Greek, Roman, and Norse myths with a sure taste and scholarship that help to restore their quality as perennial and refreshing fables about human nature, including our own."—The New Yorker
