A compendium of narrative variants useful for anyone wanting seriously to analyze a Greek myth.
(Times Literary Supplement
Nothing short of remarkable... This book will certainly become a staple of all classical libraries for years to come.
(Bryn Mawr Classical Review
Its accessible format, straightforward readability, and economical price should put it where it belongs, on the shelf of anyone who teaches mythology, at whatever level.
There has long been a need for a comprehensive treatment―accessible in English―of the principal myths that one encounters while reading the major Greek texts. Early Greek Myth goes a long way to filling the gap.
