KIRKUS REVIEW

The Greek myth of creation, the genealogy of the gods, are given new vitality in Warren's handling. He has chosen to sustain a sparseness and clarity, a style appropriate to the classical theme. With this as a basis of understanding of the classic myths-a heritage fundamental to understanding the literature of the West, Warren has performed signal service, an invaluable aid to grounding student understanding of all literature.
