Summary

Now in its 8th edition, this magisterial work offers a comprehensive survey of the stories of Greek myth, from the Olympian gods, through the lesser gods and deities, to the heroes, adventures, and foundation myths of the ancient Greek world.

The Routledge Handbook of Greek Mythology sets out to provide a comprehensive history of the divine order and mythical prehistory of Greece, as systematised on a genealogical basis by Hesiod and the ancient mythographers, while also taking into account the ways in which individual myths changed and evolved over time in different genres of literature. This new edition has been extensively rewritten and reorganised to make it more accessible to readers who may have no particular knowledge of the ancient world and Greek mythology, and to ensure that information on each myth or mythical figure is easy to find within the book.

This new edition of the handbook continues to offer an essential reference resource for all students of Greek mythology, and provides an accessible and comprehensive overview of these stories for anyone with an interest in the classical world.
