Myth: Stories from World Mythology

Sarah Bartlett

Discover the world's greatest myths and legends - from Greek mythology to Oceanic mythology - in this comprehensive guide

Humans have always told stories, and myths have been used for millennia as a means of storytelling. A good tale can deliver an important message, an understanding of deeper emotional conflicts, or perhaps act as a light piece of entertainment. Myths have always been a useful lens through which to see reality, as well as granting explanations for the unexplainable.

Myth provides detailed information on a wide range of myths and legends throughout history and across the globe. Ancient myths of Egypt, Rome, Greece, Scandinavia and the Celtic world are explored alongside the legends of Native Americans, Australian Aborigines, Aztecs and Incas, Africa and Asia. From Aphrodite to King Arthur and the Epic of Gilgamesh to Mayan death gods, here you will find a guide to the specific traditions as well as an exploration of common themes in myths worldwide including creation, love, quests and the underworld.

This is an indispensable guide for any mythology enthusiasts.
