I haven't attempted Ovid or Hesiod, but this is where I would undoubtedly start whenever decide to do so. It's time to ask why Hamilton was so extraordinarily thorough with Greek myth (and Roman, while aware that Roman stories are nearly all renamed versions of the Greek tales), and yet she left out so many other myths so much older and so much more important, for example The Epic of Gilgamesh, perhaps the oldest written story on Earth, which relates the story of the historical King of Uruk from Ancient Sumeria (2750-2500 BCE) originally on 12 clay tablets in cunieform script.

Does Edith Hamilton not care that the prototype is more important than the bastardized version invented by Germanic peoples?

Well, I am just trying to be a gracious hospitable host allowing my foreigner friends happy during their visit. The introduction includes commentary on the major classical poets used as sources, and on how changing cultures have led to changing characterizations of the deities and their myths.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Pindar in the early fifth century tells the tale about the feast Tantalus made the gods and protests that it is not true. This is an ambitious work, which Edith Hamilton brings to life Greek and Roman Mythology (mainly and Norse partly), being a keystone of Western Culture. Niobe, daughter of Tantalus, disrespected the Goddess Leto by exclaiming to the people that they should worship and burn incense to her and not to the Goddess.Though her first book wasn't published until she was in her sixties, her work achieved great popular success. Doutora honoris causa de várias universidades e devota dos ideais clássicos, Hamilton tornou-se, aos noventa anos de idade, cidadã honorária da cidade de Atenas.
