About this deal

In any case, their beauty, strength and vigour are unmatched but, these things aside, their personalities, temperament and moral compass’ leave much to be desired. Cada historia y mito recolectado está cuidado al más mínimo detalle, con unas preciosas ilustraciones a todo color y una estética muy atrayente para el lector. Since so much of Western humanity's psychology and our literature have their roots in mythology, it is well worth understanding the stories and characters involved. There are reasons for the re-invention of the Sigurd story that are not entirely pleasant, and the re-invention of that story as the Wagnerian Ring Saga in opera. This week, we're talking Prophet Song, Paul Lynch, Lessons in Chemistry, Bonnie Garmus, and "Rabbit Test", Samantha Mills.

Book-of-the-Month Club selection in 1957, honorary citizenship of Athens, a highly laudatory obit in the New York Times when she finally died at age 95 - what's not to love? I also like how this read includes a big overview of Norse mythology and then very briefly makes a connection to Greek Myths and how both are relevant today.All her knowledge came from classic literature; she has never been to Greece, and never participated in archaeology. May Poseidon thrust upon me an irrational desire to undertake coital alignment with a bovine beauty (a horny heifer/arousable angus/titillated toro, if you'd be so kind)!

For 75 years readers have chosen this book above all others to discover the thrilling, enchanting, and fascinating world of Western mythology-from Odysseus's adventure-filled journey to the Norse god Odin's effort to postpone the final day of doom.In 1895 she moved back to Germany with her sister to study humanities and classics at the university of Munich (the then centre of classical studies). More often than not she shares with us the particular poet’s version she has taken inspiration from in her retelling and any others she has borrowed from as supplementation. It's not just the over-representation of winged steeds, there's also way too much use of the threatening dark thundercloud effect, and the human figures are invariably depicted as shrieking heavenward as they shake their evidently double-jointed limbs in panic. The first one I received had a rip down the spine of the dust cover as well as, as others have said, lots of smudge marks/finger prints all over the cover. Finally, it should be noted that Hamilton's retelling of the Greek myths is based solely on her study of the classical literature - she had never been to Greece, and had no archaeological experience.
