Mythology Discover the captivating beliefs of the ancient Greeks, Egyptians, and Vikings in this book on Mythology that contains three manuscripts. The first manuscript in this bundle is the bestseller called Greek Mythology: A Captivating Guide to the Ancient Gods, Goddesses, Heroes, and Monsters. Manuscript 1: Greek Mythology: Captivating Stories of the Ancient Gods, Goddesses, Heroes, and Monsters This first part includes some of the standard views of Greek myth and history but also tantalizes your imagination with the possibilities that lay behind myth and legend. By the time you are finished with this part, you will have a good appreciation for the nature of Greek mythology and the gods, monsters, and heroes which populate it. Just some of the topics covered in this part include: Uranus: Betrayal by Cronus Cronus: Fear of His Children Titans vs. Olympian Gods Olympian Rule Zeus and His Ladies Prometheus and Herakles An Unhappy Tale of the Underworld The Beauty Contest that Led to the Fall of Troy Poseidon, Metis, Athena and Atlantis Kraken and Other Monsters Jason, the Argonauts, and Medea's Dragon Menelaus, Agamemnon, and the Trojan War Solon, the Athenian Law Giver 300 Spartans Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle Alexander the Great Manuscript 2: Egyptian Mythology: Captivating Stories of the Gods, Goddesses, Monsters and Mortals This manuscript is broken into three parts: Fantastic Images-Ancient Egyptian myths and legends as we know them today. Factual History-Covering pre-history through classical antiquity. Unraveling Myth-Looking at Egyptian mythology from a fresh perspective. This part is jam-packed with fascinating facts and stories. For instance, it covers perhaps the most popular of all the Egyptian stories - the myth of Osiris. Pieces of this story have been found throughout Egypt. One of the most appealing aspects of the Osiris myth is the human-like behavior of the gods within the story. Many of the other gods of the Egyptian pantheon were rather emotionless and their stories far less interesting. With the Osiris story, the gods display a broad range of emotions that made them more real to mere mortals. Just some of the questions and topics covered in this manuscript on Egyptian Mythology include: Egypt in Context Creation Fall of Humanity Osiris Myth Chief Gods of the Egyptian Pantheon Lesser Known Pantheon Secrets of Giza - Sphinx and Pyramids King List Ancient Egyptian History Classical Antiquity Dragons and Other Creatures Osiris, Isis, Seth and Horus The Meaning of Myth Manuscript 3: Norse Mythology: Captivating Stories of the Gods, Sagas, and Heroes Within this part, you'll find the answers to these questions and more.

The seventy-two entries in this volume explore, among other topics, the history, geography, and religion of Greece, Plato's mythology and philosophy, the powers of marriage in Greece, heroes and gods of war in the Greek epic, and origins of mankind in Greek myths. Ancient Egyptian cosmology, anthropology, rituals, and religion—closely linked to Greek mythology—are also discussed. "In a world that remains governed by powerful myths, we must deepen our understanding of ourselves and others by considering more carefully the ways in which the mythological systems to which we cling and social institutions and movements to which we are committed nourish each other. Yves Bonnefoy's Mythologies not only summarizes the progress that has already been made toward this end, but also lays the foundation for the difficult work that lies ahead."—Mark C. Taylor, New York Times Book Review "The almost 100 contributors combine, with characteristic precision and élan, the arts of science and poetry, of analysis and translation. The result is a treasury of information, brilliant guesswork, witty asides, and revealing digressions. This is a work of genuine and enduring excitement."—Thomas D'Evelyn, Christian cience Monitor
