The Greek Myths: The Complete and Definitive Edition
By Robert Graves



The Greek Myths: The Complete and Definitive Edition

The Greek Myths is the definitive and comprehensive edition of Robert Graves's classic imaginative and poetic retelling of the Greek myths.
'Icarus disobeyed his father's instructions and began soaring towards the sun, rejoiced by the lift of his great sweeping wings.
Presently, when Daedalus looked over his shoulder, he could no longer see Icarus; but scattered feathers floated on the waves below...'

Including many of the greatest stories ever told - the labours of Hercules, the voyage of the Argonauts, Theseus and the minotaur, Midas and his golden touch, the Trojan War and Odysseus's journey home - Robert Graves's superb and comprehensive retelling of the Greek myths for a modern audience has been regarded for over fifty years as the definitive version.
