Edward Ferrie provides an informative introduction to the creation myth of ancient Greece, beginning with Chaos and the formation of Mother Earth, Cronos' revenge against Uranus and the clash of the Titans, and ending with Pandora unleashing the evils of the world onto mankind. Ferrie traces the lineage of the gods and tells the classic myths of Zeus, Athena, and Prometheus, among others. Benjamin Soames keeps up with Ferrie's brisk pace with a clear and explanatory tone that makes Gods and Titans an educational and easy-to-follow primer for beginning students of Greek mythology.
This is a story from the Tales from the Greek Legends collection.
The great myths of Ancient Greece have inspired mankind for centuries. Each of the heroes has to undergo trials of strength and courage to prove his valor against a host of monsters - the Minotaur, half man, half bull; Hydra, the many-headed serpent; Medusa the Gorgon. Meanwhile, the gods, lead by Zeus the Thunderer from his seat on Mount Olympus, watch, encourage, help - and sometimes hinder. In this new retelling, the tales come alive more vividly than ever with the added drama of popular music by Holst, Wagner, and others.
