KIRKUS REVIEW

The purpose of this book is to reintroduce myths to the student of literature with an expressed hope that some general readers will join the party. The author relates fourteen hero myths -- seven from ancient times and seven from medieval times, all good literature as well as excellent data for the interpretation of man's cultural past. The book makes available some stories never before translated and explanatory comment that will interest the general reader.
