Description

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.
