About this deal

When I took a folklore course at Uni, it was still considered a standard book for teaching, and I greeted it like the old friend it was.

Now, my son has had his interest sparked in mythology through the Percy Jackson books, so he is now deep into the world of myth. One could add many more but overall in this book one can see clearly the basis of a civilisation that was destined to become great and provide Europe with its mind and soul. Right now I am reading 2023 Reading Goal and book club books, writing books, and just doing an enormous mass of other things from the TBR.

Some of the tales have a really insidious tone that I think could make for some chilling cinematics. Fry used this novel as a source (and many others) because this is such a cohesive package, sorting out the various sources and semi being chronological. Niobe, daughter of Tantalus, disrespected the Goddess Leto by exclaiming to the people that they should worship and burn incense to her and not to the Goddess. In fact, I’ll just come out and say it, if you read the dull little paperback version, you’re an inferior human being, it is what it is. All her knowledge came from classic literature; she has never been to Greece, and never participated in archaeology.

In the island where I grew up, there was a boy named Apollo who was naked the whole day that I could see his wang dangling while we played and he oftentimes cried when he lost in our games and I thought that, while reading this book, he did not even have a slight semblance of the Greek god he was named after.Through the first quarter of the twentieth century she was the headmistress of the Bryn Mawr School in Baltimore. You actually finish the book with a pretty good idea of who all the major authors of Greek and Roman Mythology were and some of their storytelling traits. E sim, tive sempre más notas nas atividades de leitura desde que me lembro - normal já que nunca lia os livros que me impingiam.
