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

Greek Mythology is the body of myths and teachings that belong to the ancient Greeks, concerning their gods and heroes, the nature of the world, and the origins and significance of their own cult and ritual practices. It was a part of the religion in ancient Greece. The Greeks were polytheistic in their religious beliefs. Polytheistic means they believed in and worshiped many different gods. Modern scholars refer to and study the myths in an attempt to shed light on the religious and political institutions of Ancient Greece and its civilization, and to gain understanding of the nature of myth-making itself. In Greek Mythology, the gods often represented different forms of nature. Their religion/mythology had no formal structure with the exception of various festivals held in honor of the gods. There was no sacred book or code of conduct to live by. The most powerful Greek gods were known as the Olympians. The Greeks believed the Olympians lived on the highest mountain in Greece, Mount Olympus. The Olympian gods included: Zeus, Hera, Apollo, Aphrodite, Ares, Artemis, Athena, Demeter, Hades, Hermes, Hephaestus, Poseidon and Hestia or later she was replaced in some lists by Dionysus. Greek Mythology is explicitly embodied in a large collection of narratives, and implicitly in Greek representational arts, such as vase-paintings and votive gifts. Greek myth attempts to explain the origins of the world, and details the lives and adventures of a wide variety of gods, goddesses, heroes, heroines and mythological creatures. These accounts initially were disseminated in an oral-poetic tradition; today the Greek myths are known primarily from Greek literature. The oldest known Greek literary sources, Homer's epic poems Iliad and Odyssey, focus on the Trojan War and its aftermath.

This first volume of Bernard Evslin’s award-winning series introduces the monsters, demons, gods, and heroes of Greek mythology Athena, wise and powerful daughter of Zeus, is the most feared of all the goddesses. Poseidon, the “earth shaker,” rules the sea with his thunderous wrath. Each wants to control Olympus absolutely. Obsessed with destroying Poseidon, Athena summons her crows by day and owls by night to spy on his vast water realm. The long-simmering feud spawns a multitude of monsters, the most terrifying of which is the brass-headed colossus Amycus. This classic work features a sprawling cast of gods and mortals waging battle on land and by sea, from Zeus to the Titan god Prometheus, from Hades, who guards the gates of hell, to Circe, immortal weaver of spells, to the great war chief Ulysses, who sails in search of his long-lost home. Monsters of Greek Mythology brings to life fearsome creatures like giant, flame-spitting wingless dragons, a spider named Arachne, goats and swordfish endowed with magical properties, and the Cyclopes—one-eyed male and female goliaths even more powerful than the Titans.
