Format: Hardcover
Robert Graves account of the famous greek myth The Golden Fleece is a remarkably enjoyable and well described novel.
The reader is taken through each stage of the adventure as though we ourselves were aboard the argo. The other characters which featured in the myth, mainly the argonauts were described in as much detail as was necessary, the reader doesn't get the sense that Graves is drifting from the topic at hand, just broadening the story.
A difficult read yes, but the reader is rewarded as the myth unfolds.
A must read for all greek mythology lovers across the world!

Superb. Informed by the highest scholarship, and an innate feel for the spirit of the time. Funny, beautiful, exhilarating, entertaining. Graves' version brought the story to life for me in a way it hadn't been since I first heard the story as a child.

Format: Paperback
This is of course a Gravesian fable of a novel that has little to do with the original myth, which was an initiation or shamanic saga, the Golden Fleece being the transformed soul, which was sought after by the various initiates who founded the mystery cults and centres of the ancient world: Orpheus (the Orphic cult), Hercules (12 labours = 12 zodiac signs), Jason himself and so on. But if you don't mind a romantic fable playing with the ingredients of the original legend for its own purposes then this is a fine elegant read. He is a great novelist.
