Jenny March’s acclaimed Dictionary of Classical Mythology, first published in 1998 but long out of print, has been extensively revised and expanded including a completely new set of beautiful line-drawing illustrations for this Oxbow edition. It is a comprehensive A – Z guide to Greek and Roman mythology. All major myths, legends and fables are here, including gods and goddesses, heroes and villains, dangerous women, legendary creatures and monsters. Characters such as Achilles and Odysseus have extensive entries, as do epic journeys and heroic quests, like that of Jason and the Argonauts to win the Golden Fleece, all alongside a plethora of information on the creation of the cosmos, the many metamorphoses of gods and humans, and the Trojan War, plus more minor figures – nymphs, seers, kings, rivers, to name but a few. In this superbly authoritative work the myths are brilliantly retold, along with any major variants, and with extensive translations from ancient authors that give life to the narratives and a sense of the vibrant cultures that shaped the development of classical myth. The 172 illustrations give visual immediacy to the words, by showing how ancient artists perceived their gods and heroes. The impact of myths on ancient art is also explored, as is and their influence in the postclassical arts, emphasising the ongoing inspiration afforded by the ancient myths. Also included are two maps of the ancient world, a list of the ancient sources and their chronology, the more important genealogies, and an index of recurrent mythical motifs.

Gods were not only worshipped, but consulted for both minor problems and victory in battle. The legends of mortals Heracles and Perseus were wrapped up in the lives of the immortals. Art and artifacts, as well as photographs of the landscapes immortalized in the tales, bring the world of Classical myth to life.

The life of Hephaestus, god of fire, abounded with intrigue, mystery, and excitement. Who was Hephaestus’ father? Why does Hera refuse to reveal his name? Why doesn’t Hephaestus reveal the recipient of his special gift, the bronze net? Hephaestus’ life as portrayed in Greek and Roman myths was filled with rejection and deception. Yet this god did not let the negative experiences of life stop him from seeking love and companionship. Hephaestus is shown as a god of pride, hope, and compassion. Though he sometimes struggles to make the right decision, he manages, like most of us, to find the right answer within himself.
