Summary

In the first scholarly and concise survey of Greek myths, Carpenter turns to the visual arts in order to explain the myths that are so much a part of our collective consciousness. Depictions in vase paintings, engraved gems, and sculptures in stone and bronze often pre-date reference to the myths or offer alternative versions of familiar stories, and it is through these objects that we begin to understand the myths of gods and heroes as they were understood by the Greeks themselves. An indispensable book for anyone interested in the art, poetry, drama, or religion of ancient Greece.
