Book Summary:

The only work of its kind to survive from classical antiquity, the 'Library of Apollodorus' is a guide to Greek mythology, from the origins of the universe to the Trojan War. Used as a source book by classicists from antiquity to Robert Graves, it tells the story of each of the great families of heroic mythology, and the various adventures associated with the main heroes and heroines Robin Hard's accessible and fluent translation is supplemented by comprehensive notes, a map and full genealogical tables. The Introduction gives a detailed account of the Library's sources and situates it within the fascinating narrative traditions of Greek mythology.

Book Summary:

The Bibliotheca (Ancient Greek: ΒΙΒΛΙΟ&thΗήΚΗ Bibliothēkē, "Library"), also known as the Bibliotheca of Pseudo-Apollodorus, is a compendium of Greek myths and heroic legends, arranged in three books, generally dated to the first or second century AD.The author was traditionally thought to be Apollodorus of Athens, but that attribution is now regarded as false, and so "Pseudo-" was added to ApollodorusThe Bibliotheca has been called "the most valuable mythographical work that has come down from ancient times". An epigram recorded by the important intellectual Patriarch Photius I of Constantinople expressed its purpose:It has the following not ungraceful epigram: 'Draw your knowledge of the past from me and read the ancient tales of learned lore. Look neither at the page of Homer, nor of elegy, nor tragic muse, nor epic strain. Seek not the vaunted verse of the cyc≤ but look in me and you will find in me all that the world contains'.The brief and unadorned accounts of myth in the Bibliotheca have led some commentators to suggest that even its complete sections are an epitome of a lost work.

Book Summary:

The immortal characters of Greek mythology enact their dramas, conflicts, and passions in the "Library of Apollodorus." Probably composed in the first century A.D., it is the only Greek handbook of mythology to survive antiquity, and is a major source of our knowledge of Greek myths. Beginning with the birth of the gods and ending with the death of Odysseus, the 'Library' traces the destinies of such great mythic figures as Prometheus, Oedipus, Heracles, Daedalus, and the heroes of the Trojan War. Michael Simpson's new translation captures the fine simplicity and straightforwardness of the original. Leonard Baskin's drawings throw a unique contemporary light on this ancient world.
