Product description


"Edith Hamilton retells the Greek, Roman, and Norse myths with a sure taste and scholarship that help to restore their quality as perennial and refreshing fables about human nature, including our own."--The New Yorker

"No one in modern times has shown us more vividly than Edith Hamilton 'the glory that was Greece and the grandeur that was Rome.' Filtering the golden essence from the mass of classical literature, she proved how applicable to our daily lives are the humor and wisdom of more than 2,000 years ago."--New York Times

About the Author

Edith Hamilton (12 August 1867-31 May 1963) was an American educator and author who was recognised as the greatest woman classicist of her time. The New York Times has described her as the classical scholar who 'brought into clear and brilliant focus the Golden Age of Greek life and thought...with Homeric power and simplicity in her style of writing'.
