The Greatest Greek Myths Retold for Children "Dear mother," said Proserpina, "I shall be very lonely while you are away. May I not run down to the shore, and ask some of the sea nymphs to come up out of the waves and play with me?" "Yes, child," answered Mother Ceres. "The sea nymphs are good creatures, and will never lead you into any harm. But you must take care not to stray away from them, nor go wandering about the fields by yourself. Young girls, without their mothers to take care of them, are very apt to get into mischief." ―Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Tanglewood Tales Tanglewood Tales is Nathaniel Hawthorne's retelling of a collection of Greek myths for children.

Herein are 6 richly illustrated tales, or rather, Greek Myths rewritten for children. The book includes the myths of: Theseus and the Minotaur (Chapter : "The Minotaur") Antaeus and the Pygmies (Chapter: "The Pygmies") Dragon's Teeth (Chapter: "The Dragon's Teeth") Circe's Palace (Chapter: "Circe's Palace") Proserpina, Ceres, Pluto, and the Pomegranate Seed (Chapter: "The Pomegranate Seed") Jason and the Golden Fleece (Chapter: "The Golden Fleece") Hawthorne wrote this book while renting a small cottage in the Berkshires, a vacation area in Massachusetts for industrialists during the Gilded Age. The owner of the cottage, a railroad baron, renamed the cottage "Tanglewood" in honour of the book having been written there. Later, a nearby mansion was renamed Tanglewood, where outdoor classical concerts were held, which became a Berkshire summer tradition. Ironically, Hawthorne hated living in the Berkshires. The Tanglewood neighbourhood of Houston was also named after the book. The book was a favourite of Mary Catherine Farrington, the daughter of Tanglewood developer William Farrington. It also reportedly inspired the name of the thickly wooded Tanglewood Island in the state of Washington. Not a bad legacy for a book of Greek myths rewritten for children…..! =========== KEYWORDS/TAGS: Children’s stories, Children’s Books, Folklore, Fairy, Folk, Tales, bedtime story, legends, storyteller, fables, moral tales, myths, happiness, laughter, greek, Theseus, Minotaur, Antaeus, Pygmies, Dragon's Teeth, Circe's Palace, Proserpina, Ceres, Pluto, Pomegranate Seeds, Jason, Golden Fleece, , Æetes, Ægeus, Æthra, Agenor, Antæus, Argonauts, Ariadne, Athens, banquet, beautiful, brave, bull, Cadmus, cavern, Cerberus, Ceres, Chiron, Cilix, Circe, Colchis, companions, comrades, creatures, Crete, dragon, earth, enchanted, enchantress, Europa, Eurylochus, flowers, galley, Giant, goblet, Golden, gormandizers, gown, Hecate, Hercules, heroes, Iolchos, island, Jason, King, kingdom, labyrinth, little, magic, magnificent, maidens, marble, Medea, Minos, Minotaur, monster, Mother, nymphs, Orpheus, palace, peacock, Pelias, Phœbus, Phœnix, Pluto, pomegranate, Prince, Proserpina, Pygmies, Pygmy, Queen, quest, Quicksilver, royal, scepter, sorrow, spear, strength, Strong, sun, sword, Telephassa, Thasus, Theseus, thousand, three-headed, throne, Ulysses, vessel, victory, voyagers, water, white, wicked, world

"Baby and Child Heroes in Ancient Greece is the first systematic study of the considerable number of Greek babies and children who became enduring myths, objects of worship, and the recipients of sacrifice." "Examining literary, pictorial, and numismatic representations, Pache opens up a vast territory once occupied by children such as Charila, Opheltes, Melikertes, and the children of Hercules and Medea. She argues that the stories, songs, and sanctuaries honoring these heroes express parental fears and guilt about children's death."--Jacket.
