One of the world's great classical scholars retells for a general audience the haunting central myths of the Greek world - 'the roots of its creation, the eternal tug-of-war between its gods and mortals, and the heart and soul of its tragedies and epic poems' - the Creation, the war of the gods and Titans, the empire of Zeus and the Olympian gods, tales of the Trojan War, the voyage of Odysseus, the stories of Dionysus, Oedipus, Perseus - all told with a new freshness and simplicity.

'Here, from a master scholar of Greek mythology, religion and society, is a master narrative of the ancient Greek world 'told with the resonance, verve and passion of a modern bard in action' Robert Fagles, bestselling translator of The Iliad and The Odyssey 'Storytelling at its best ... A rich treasury for all readers' - Library Journal 'Those seeking a first-rate account of the meanings and origins of the Greek myths, as well as a fresh and absorbing narrative, will find no better guide than Vernant' - Publisher's Weekly
