Book Description

Building on the best-selling tradition of previous editions; Classical Mythology; 11th Edition; (PDF) is the most comprehensive survey of classical mythology available — and the first full-color etextbook of its kind. Featuring the authors’ extensive and clear translations of original sources; it brings to life the myths and legends of Greece and Rome in an engaging and lucid style. The textbook contains a wide variety of faithfully translated passages from Latin and Greek sources; including Hesiod; Homer; all the Homeric Hymns; Aeschylus; Pindar; Euripides; Sophocles; Plato; Lucian; Herodotus; Vergil; Ovid; Lucretius; and Seneca.

Acclaimed authors Mark Robert J. Lenardon; P.O. Morford; and Michael Sham incorporate a dynamic combination of poetic narratives and enlightening commentary to make the myths come alive for university students. Offering cultural and historical background; they also examine the enduring survival of classical mythology and its influence in the fields of literature; art; dance; music; and film.

This ebook offers rich; broad; yet detailed coverage and is superior to all competitors I know. This has been my main textbook (with a few interruptions) for considerably more than 20 years. It is reliable and appeals to students.” — Zoja Pavlovskis-Petit; Binghamton University

Classical Mythology; Eleventh Edition; features a thoughtful and engaging presentation of material; good use of graphics and color; and an excellent layout. The range and coverage of topics are very thorough; most of what a mythology instructor or class might look for is here in some form.” — Glen Robert Gill; Montclair State University

I particularly like the glossary; which explains how concepts or names that originate with Greek myth have become part of the language. This is great for enhancing student literacy and building vocabulary. The phonetic pronunciations provided in one index are very helpful; as is the audio element on the website; which says words aloud so that college students (and instructors) can hear how they are pronounced.” — Alice Goode-Elman; Suffolk Community College
