“A treasure house of illustrations . . . erudite and enjoyable.” ?Contemporary ReviewEvery culture has its own myths, and this lively and accessible compendium gathers some of humankind’s most enduring stories in one place. Here, from every corner of the globe, are tales of the world’s creation, undying love, the Sun and the Moon, gods of the weather, tricksters, terrible monsters, the afterlife and the underworld, and more. Looking at the overarching themes of the world’s mythologies, Christopher Dell shows how many myths share common patterns and traces how the human imagination, in all its diversity, has expressed itself through the ages.
From the ancient Norse characters to Homer’s epics to Gilgamesh, from the Hindu deities to the Old Testament and King Arthur, this is the perfect introduction to mythology. Brought to life through hundreds of colorful, beautiful, and sometimes bizarre illustrations, this book will appeal to anyone interested in the tales we tell to make sense of the world around us. 410 illustrations
