Overview

Empires and kingdoms come and go but their myths and legends live on, told and retold over hundreds, sometimes thousands, of years. Some still flourish today as inspiration for fantasy, from J. R. R. Tolkien to J. K. Rowling and beyond. Some have been almost forgotten and others are still only being partially revealed to outsiders. This book presents a fascinating selection of stories drawn from myths and legends originating from diverse cultures around the globe. From tales from the earliest stone tablets to stories told to delight royal courts; from hero stories to those offering answers to life’s unanswerable questions, this is an absorbing and beautifully presented compendium of tales that have engaged people for generations.

An illuminating introduction by Dr. Alice Mills, Adjunct Professor of Literature and Children’s Literature at the Federation University, Australia, sets the myths and legends in their cultural and historical context, while brief notes on the myths reveal their particular origins and meanings.
