Overview

A knowledge of mythology may not be a necessity to success in business, or in any other sphere except a purely scholastic one. At the same time, it greatly adds to one's enjoyment of literature, art and conversation to possess some acquaintance with the imaginary characters, places and incidents of the ancient myths, which have been such an inspiring influence to writers of all ages. Few people outside literary and educational workers have opportunity or leisure sufficient to acquire or keep up a knowledge of this particular branch of learning. Thus, it may be useful to present in dictionary form the stories in brief of the classic gods, heroes, places, and things of the old Greek and Roman literature and mythology. It will lead to a better understanding of the countless references that are made from time to time in the literature of the day to classic subjects. It is a great wonderland, and forms a realm all its own. Originally published in the 1800s as a portion of "Pears' Shilling Cyclopaedia," this paperback edition includes more than 400 entries concerning mythological gods, heroes, places, and things.
