5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent classical resource
Gantz guide to early Greek myth offers a comprehensive guide to the sources. It is detailed and not for the casual reader, but academically it offers an accessible compendium of literary sources as well as including some examples from visual art. A must for the those with a serious interest in the origins and early progression of Greek mythology.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unreadable
Just received this book from Amazon a few minutes ago, opened it and attempted to read in. The typeface is so small I had to give up after a couple of paragraphs. The content may be very valuable, but I shall never know. I certainly will not be wasting my money on volume two.

The book is now in the dustbin.

DON'T buy if you're over thirty-five.

This review is from: Early Greek Myth: A Guide to Literary and Artistic Sources: Volume 1 (Paperback)
This two volume work is an excellent survey of the earliest accessible sources of Greek myth; the approach is scholarly, but this doesn't mean that it's unreadable. Gantz works hard at presenting the narrative of mythological stories, while informing his readers of the numerous variations that have come down to us from ancient times. I like the little touches of humour, which, I feel, is very much in keeping with the life-force of the tales.
