No marks or writing observed in text. Binding tight and square. Gently read. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 'For anyone interested in Greek Mythology, this is a very good 2 book vlume to check out. It tells us how the Greek Gods came into power and gives us detailed stories about them. It also has many of the popular stories like Heracles, Pandora, The Trojan, Ulysses and many many others. Although many of the names are very difficult to pronounce, it is still a very enjoyable read if you are interested in Greek Mythology. For those interested in the subject, I recommend this volume. If you are moderately curious, I'd recommend this volume. If you don't know much, or really anything about the Greek Myths, I think this is still a good place to start to learn about many of the Gods and Goddesses and heroic stories.' -- Jeff

The volume's editor is one of the nation's top fairy tale researchers, and the articles in this compendium are easily accessible for professional researchers and for the general public alike. I found the book very easy to work with, as its entries are logically organized and generously cross-referenced around literary key words, authors, works and cultural trends. It is a great benefit that this edition also includes fairy tale materials from non-Western traditions.' -- Chapel Hill. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
