It is a collection of Greek and Norse myths that appear regularly in literature and art. The end notes include not only a discussion about interpreting the stories, but also what works in literature and art to look at.
An extremely excellent book worthy of being read. I found Mr. Gayley's view on mythology very insightful and was beyond pleased at how he decided to put lesser known myths in his book to add to the excitement. While most of his work is about Greek mythology he included myths from other cultures to make it more diverse. Jan 10, Shari rated it liked it.
The nature, functions, and types of myth
The only book I own that's more than years old. A great book to read if you want to brush up on your mythology, I plan on re-reading this before the next NJCL convention, comparable to Bulfinch's and Edith Hamilton's books on mythology.
