Greek Myths. Gods and Heroes in Ancient Times
De greske mytene. Guder og helter fra de gamle fortellingene

The Greek stories of gods and heroes have captivated children and grownups for thousands of years, from ancient times up till today’s literature and movies. In this magnificent book new readers are invited into the stories that have shaped the world we live in.

Inger Merete Hobbelstad is a formidable communicator of classical education. With great knowledge and empathy, she has rewritten the famous twelve Labours of Heracles, Jason and the golden fleece and about Perseus who beheaded Medusa. We meet the mighty and capricious gods, the sparkling Amazons as well as mortal men and women living their lives filled with love, loss and sorrow.

The book is beautifully illustrated by Stella East.
