Jean-Pierre Vernant, one of the greatest contemporary Hellenists, narrates here the main Greek myths: the cosmogonies explaining how the Universe was created, Zeus's battle with Typhon, Prometheus, the Trojan War, Ulysses, Dionysus, Oedipus and Perseus, etc.
«In this book, I have tried to reveal directly by word of mouth a bit of the Greek world to which I am particularly attached, and of which, in my view, the survival in each of us is more than ever necessary in today's world.» Jean-Pierre Vernant not only tells wonderful stories, he also unveils their many different meanings.
This is a fine example of intelligent popularisation that takes us into a world where humans lived alongside the gods.
