Greek Mythology: A Traveler's Guide by David Stuttard

A hands-on traveler's guide to the enthralling tales of Greek mythology, organized around the cities and landscapes where the events are set

The Greek myths have a universal appeal, beyond the time and physical place in which they were created. But many are firmly rooted in specific landscapes: the city of Thebes and mountain range Cithaeron dominate the tale of Oedipus; the city of Mycenae broods over the fates of Agamemnon and Electra; while Knossos boasts the scene of Theseus?? slaying of the Minotaur. Drawing on a wide range of classical sources, newly translated by the author, and illustrated with specially commissioned drawings, this book is both a useful read for those visiting the sites and a fascinating imaginative journey for the armchair traveler. The itinerary includes twenty-two locations, from Mount Olympus to Homer??s Hades, recounting the myths and history associated with each site and highlighting features that visitors can still see today.

Scholarly text, supported by quotes from primary sources and contemporary research, as well as the enticing stories of gods and goddesses, heroes and villains, enrich the reader??s literal or simply literary experience of these sites, whose significance still resonates today.
