Introduction to Greek Mythology

What can we say about the Greek Gods that they haven’t already said about themselves? Consummate tall story tellers, the ancient Greeks had classy classic Gods for all situations.

Greek Mythology is a veritable blockbusting soap opera. What can Zeus possibly get up to next — and with whom? How will Hera take her next revenge? Where will Aphrodite discard her nightie? Who has been barred from Olympus lately — and why? When is the next big punch-up? And will Hermes be sued for selling counterfeit sheep?

Full of twists, turns, plots within plots, wit, humor, satire, belly laughs, blood-curdling thrills, Greek Gods have beginnings, middles, and ends without end. Coming soon to a temple near you. And they are all big stars — brawnier, more beautiful, and larger than any life you have ever known.

The Romans couldn’t improve upon them. So they just gave them a quick makeover and turned the whole Greek pantheon into a spin-off sequel.
