Zeus, Gaia, Heracles, Medea, Pandora, Theseus and Odysseus: at the dawn of Western civilization, long before the written word was commonplace, there were great stories of gods and goddesses, heroes and adventurers, monsters and magicians. These myths helped people make sense of the world around them, gave them context for their own existence, warned them against dangerous behavior and inspired them to virtuous acts. History, religion and science all merged in gripping accounts of creation, murder, betrayal, warfare, exploration, sacrifice and courage, narratives like those of the Trojan War and the Quest of the Argonauts that influenced so much of the world’s literature that followed and established their own place in the collective consciousness of the modern mind. Discover a world where the divine and the mortal walk together, where gods struggle against one another, where armies and families rise and fall, cursed or blessed by deities that move among them with human appetites of their own.
