Classical Mythology: with Sophocles' Antigone, Oedipus the King, Electra
Morford and Lenardon's best-selling introduction to classical mythology is a comprehensive survey focusing on the literary tradition of Greek and Roman mythology. It offers extensive translations of original mythological sources as well as comparative and interpretive approaches to the myths. In this package, Classical Mythology, 6/e is bundled with the Oxford World's Classic Antigone, Oedipus the King, Electra--three of Sophocles' most influential and famous works. The vivid translations combine elegance and modernity and are remarkable for their lucidity and accuracy. The selection of these three works presents in one volume the two plays dominated by a female heroic figure and the experience of the two great dynasties featured in Greek tragedy--the houses of Oedipus and Agamemnon.

Bought this book for a class. Very detailed information about classical mythology. Might even be a good "interesting" read, too.

School text needed for school. Came promptly for start of class. Came as described.
Inabel
Great price. Good condition (no missing pages, smells decent, no water damage, spine was intact). Satisfied with the order.

This book was incredibly boring. It was almost unreadable to me. I ended up not using it for my class because the book would put me straight to sleep. It is not very well written.

I took a Classical Mythology course for a general credit and the instructor used this textbook. I found this textbook really interesting and easy to read, which is hard to say about a lot of textbooks. I know it was because of this that I did well in the class. The way the information was presented made sense and was easy to follow.

All the Classical Myths any person could want! It even goes into some detail about how these stories were a reflection of its society. In the end I definitely recommend.

CLASSICAL MYTHOLOGY - AMAZON LEADS IN CLASSICS REFERENCE BOOKS

An excellent and comprehensive book, more like a major Reference Resource.

Beautiful illustrations, well laid out with useful appendices for more reading and viewing of source material

At 798 pages, Amazon, you are a bit too quick off the mark for a complete review, as my wife and I are fighting over who has possession.

We are reading selected chapters about stories that are relevant to something we are reading or watching, and so far, we are extremely satisfied
great book
