Die brillante Nacherzählung der griechischen Mythen durch den von der Welt der alten Götter faszinierten Amerikaner erschien in gebundener Form 1997 bei Sanssouci (BA 2/98). Die vorliegende Taschenbuchausgabe hat den gleichen Aufbau: Unterteilt in 3 Kapitel werden Götter, Halbgötter und Naturmythen vorgestellt, wobei in den farbig nacherzählten Abenteuern Gorgonen, Helden und Ungeheuer den schon immer die Religionen beherrschenden Kampf zwischen den Mächten der Finsternis und des Lichtes markieren. Die eigenwilligen Illustrationen von J. Gleich sind durch die gefälligeren, hellfarbenen Bilder von L. Glazer-Naudé ersetzt, der die Emotionen der Akteure mit zartem Stift in fast fotografischer Deutlichkeit eindrucksvoll festhält. Ein abschließendes Kapitel gilt den Legenden von Midas und Pygmalion. Neben G. Schwabs unverzichtbarem Grundbestandstitel der "Sagen des klassischen Altertums" (zuletzt BA 4/07) oder der unterhaltsam-frechen Darstellung griechischer Sagen durch D. Inkiow (BA 4/07) als sprachlich auffallende, schwungvolle Nacherzählung der griechischen Mythen breit empfohlen. . - Warum verschlang Kronos seine Kinder? Was war in dem goldenen Kästchen, das Pandora, die Gabenreiche, von Hermes erhielt? Wie kam es, dass Athene, die "Hochstirnige", dem Haupt des Zeus entstieg? In farbig erzählten Episoden wird die griechische Mythologie lebendig. Ab 10.

Explore Captivating Stories of Greek and Roman Gods, Goddesses and Monsters in this Ultimate Guide to Classical Mythology This book includes two captivating manuscripts: Greek Mythology: Captivating Greek Myths of Greek Gods, Goddesses, Monsters and Heroes Roman Mythology: A Captivating Guide to Roman Gods, Goddesses, and Mythological Creatures In addition to explaining how creation itself began, myths in many cultures have the function of "just-so" stories, explaining various other important things-the invention of fire, why we have weather, the names of plants and birds. Greek and Roman mythology is no different: enfolded in grand stories of gods and heroes are some of the ways the ancient Greeks and Romans understood many of the more common aspects of their world. Although the gods and goddesses were powerful immortal beings, they were in many ways still very like the humans who worshiped them and who created these tales. The gods and goddesses are stricken with jealousy; they fall in love; they get angry when they feel slighted, and bestow gifts when they are honored. Likewise, the heroes are larger than life: they're stronger, faster, and more skilled than ordinary mortals, but they are still subject to pain, illness, and death. Within this book, you'll find the following myths and topics covered The Creation of the Titans The Birth of the Olympians and the Downfall of the Titans Prometheus and Epimetheus The Birth of the Muses The Olympian Gods and Goddesses Hera, Queen of the Gods Hermes, Trickster, and Messenger of the Gods Grey-Eyed Athena, Goddess of Wisdom and Strategy Hephaestus, God of Fire and Smithcraft Artemis, Virgin Goddess of the Hunt Apollo, God of Music and Healing Dionysus, God of Wine and Ritual Madness Ares, God of War, and Aphrodite, Goddess of Love The Story of Demeter and Persephone Demigods, Heroes, and Monsters The Story of Perseus Heracles Theseus and the Minotaur The Trojan Connection What History and an Analysis of Myth Tell Us Founding of Rome Purely Roman Gods The Creatures of Roman Mythology Borrowings from Etruria Influence of the Greek Pantheon Greek Creatures Adopted by the Romans Roman Conquests of the Celts Truth Behind the Roman Gods And More Get the book now and learn more about Classical Mythology
