A #Dictionary of Classical #Mythology (in #English) | M. R. Wright

A #Dictionary of Classical #Mythology (in #English) | M. R. Wright | Translation, Languages (Italian, English, Chinese, French) and Language Learning | Scoop.it

"This Dictionary of Classical Mythology marks a fresh start in the complex task of mapping, cataloguing and reporting on the body of material that guides the contemporary reader through the mythology of Ancient Greece and Early Rome.

 

Different versions of the narratives and genealogies in this material are endemic to the study of the subject, since variations were preserved in the tradition of oral culture, and then adapted to the interests of family and city propaganda, the literary contexts of drama and poetry, the evolution of ritual and the expansion of knowledge of the physical and human aspects of the inhabited world.

 

Yet, despite the variations, common themes of quests, vengeance and homecoming and patterns of character such as 'first woman', 'youngest son', 'cruel stepmother' and 'shape-shifter' persist through legend, folk-tale and saga, and have their most articulate expression in the myths (the μύθοι and 'fabulae') of Greek and Roman literature and art. And not only do we have the narratives preserved but also the ancient attempts to probe and interpret them through allegory, personification and ..."
