Use this book to learn more about the fascinating mythology from Ancient Greek for a limited time at a DISCOUNTED price. Now with a Bonus Chapter about the Epic Clash of the Titans and Gods In 1955 the poet Robert Graves wrote that Mythology had two main functions. One of these functions was to answer those awkward questions that many children ask, such as 'Who made the world?', 'Where did people come from?', and 'What happens when we die?'. The other was a more adult function; it was used to justify the reason behind an existing social structure and explain where traditional customs and rituals came from. The stories about the gods, goddesses, heroes and monsters that the ancient Greeks told were part of their every day lives. Those stories explained everything from the weather changing to the sun rising on a new day to why bad things happened to good people. Those stories gave meaning to the world. No matter how much time has passed, the lessons and legends told by the Ancient Greek society often have a relevant message to convey to us even today! Greek mythology unfolds before you as you educate yourself about the myths of primordial means by which the world came to be as perceived by the Ancient Greek society and the folklore they passed down through the ages. From Achilles and Troy to The 8 Labors of Hercules, to the clash between the heroic Olympians and the mighty Titans. Unmatched in appeal, Greek mythology, with its origin in antiquity, still manages to captivate the minds of the world, you need not look any farther than new A-list movies that emerge each year about the subject. Here's what you can expect to find in this book... The Olympians, the Titans, the Demigods, the Heroes, the Monsters, and Who They Were The Reign and Fall of Uranus The Moon and Her Lover Helios' Chariot and the Great Destruction/li> The Overthrow of Cronos and Zeus' Rise to Power Hermes and Apollo's Lyre Perseus and Medusa Achilles and the Trojan War And Much More! Here's what some customers thought.. Greek mythology has always fascinated me. Even though I watched many movies surrounding it, I never really knew the connections between the characters, etc. This books does a good job of showing how each character is related to each other. It shows who is the wife or husband of who, who is the child of who, and so on. The Titans, Olympians, Demigods, Heroes, and Mortals are all laid out in easy to read fashion. Many battles, like the Achilles and the Trojan war, are talked about in the book also. It is a refreshing look at all the Greek stuff that has many confused. If Greek mythology is interesting to you, then I know this book will help to clear up a lot of things about it. I benefited from the and surely you can too. -Juan deCampos I've always loved Roman and Greek mythology, and I've always read any book I get about them.My favorite goddess is Artemis.While a lot of what's written here are what I read from other books, what I like about this book is it is written in a more concise way.It is easier to understand and, as for the basic understanding of Greek gods and goddesses, this book has all the basic information about the subject.This book is a good supplement for those starting to learn about Greek mythology. -Micha L Don't Wait!

Some of the best stories about Ancient Greece are mixed with actual historical events: equal parts truth and fantasy, and that's what makes them so intriguing. The Trojan War for example, in which we see the hero Achilles, the bulwark of the Greek Army who saved the kidnapped Helen, is told from the perspective of his goddess mother. But did you know that according to the ancient Greeks, Achilles had the choice to live a long and happy life or die by his ambition to be remembered as a hero? Even with all the intervention of his Immortal mother who called in favors from the gods, she could not change the fate of her son, which was allegedly set by the Fates when he was born. Greek Gods, Goddesses, Heroes, Heroines, Monsters, and Classic Greek Myths of All Time is filled with interesting tidbits about the most popular heroes, gods and goddesses, as well as some little known facts and interpretations about their lives. You'll find timelines and the genealogy of the Immortals as well as the men and women who were subjected to their whims and used as pawns to further their intentions. It gives us deep insight into the philosophy of this "religion," into the minds of great thinkers of the time and how they viewed their world - the earth, the heavens, the stars, and the afterlife. But this book is as entertaining as it is informative. Discover how the great Olympian and King of the Gods, Zeus himself, was controlled by his wife, Hera, and how something as meaningless as a pomegranate seed fated poor Persephone to being the Goddess of the Underworld, at least part-time, that is. Find out about the four seasons, what or who inspires music and poetry, why life is limited to a certain span of time, how each person is allotted certain gifts and why, how the gods intervene, what came before Olympus, and how we got the names of many of our constellations and stars. It may seem like superstition today, but a mere 3000 years ago, these were strongly held beliefs that influenced everything in daily life including philosophy, religion and government in the same way today's dominant religions influence society. Greek Gods, Goddesses, Heroes, Heroines, Monsters, and Classic Greek Myths of All Time is a fun read and a book you'll want to refer to again and again. It should find a place in your reference library and onto your reading list.
