Description

The Myths of Herakles in Ancient Greece surveys the rich legacy of Herakles's representations during the Archaic and Early Classical periods and joins to this survey a scholarly apparatus that summarizes and refers to a good portion of the work completed on the meanings and descriptions of these manifestations. Organized into complementing 'synchronic' and 'diachronic' perspectives, the Greeks' most popular but also most complex 'hero-god' emerges to the reader in a straightforwardly written appreciation.
