About This Book
This comprehensive, beautifully illustrated text/anthology has become the benchmark for excellence among classical mythology texts; it is the only text that combines thorough coverage of theoretical approaches to myth with a substantial collection of primary works (more than 700 pages of primary selections, many of them complete works). Classical Mythology also includes a variety of effective learning aides: review questions, suggestions for further reading, and discussions of key themes in each chapter; boxed summaries of selected topics; a 30-page glossary; as well as maps, charts, and timetables. The result is a spectacularly successful teaching experience for the hundreds of instructors who have adopted and continue to use Harris and Platzners text.
