Gods and heroes are brought to life in this masterly retelling of the legends and tales of ancient Greece. Here are the great stories of the Heroic Age, from the myths of the making of the universe to the death of Heracles. Set against the colorful background of Greece and the Aegean, the adventures of heroes such as Perseus the Gorgon-slayer, Dionysus, Theseus, and Jason and the Argonauts once again come to life. In this skillful retelling these tales are as vivid and exciting as when they were first told three thousand years ago. The story of ancient Greece is continued in The Tale of Troy.… (més)

A nice way to learn/brush up on the stories of Greek heroes. It's not too vague, but also moves along briskly not bogged down by every detail. ( )

This is a very accessible introduction to the tales of the Greek heroes, including the labours of Heracles, the quest for the Golden Fleece, the bringing of fire to mankind, Typhon the Terrible, the adventures of Theseus, and of course Perseus slaying the Gorgon Medusa. The stories are presented in chronological (or perhaps sequential) order instead of in isolation, as many retellings did in the period that Green was writing. An author's note at the end explains his writing process but unfortunately does not contain any specific sources (apparently there were too many to mention). The book is divided into many relatively short chapters, each beginning with an appropriate quotation from poetry or Greek plays, and illustrations are provided throughout.

One story I'd forgotten about from previous readings was Talos, the man of brass who terrorized Crete. The way he was illustrated made him look a lot like a Cyberman from Doctor Who, five years before the show even began! Wonder if that provided any inspiration; after all, one of the Cybermen's home planets is Telos...

Overall I would recommend this if you're looking for an easy way into the stories of the Greek heroes prior to the Trojan War (which gets its own Roger Lancelyn Green retelling, The Tale of Troy). ( )

This is a good introduction to some Greek Heroes' stories. The format is easy-to-read, although not that detailed so some of the stories come off as a little dry. Most of them are quick-reads and overall it is an easy text. I would recommend it as an introduction to the topic as a way for someone interested in Greek mythology to get a little summary of some of the stories the Greek mythology is famous for. ( )

I loved the Greek myths as a child. I also love this series, its design and how it makes the classics accessible to modern young readers. However, I did not love this particular rendition of the Greek myths. There is so much stuffed in here, so much attention paid to everyone's ancestry and exactly where things took place and a surfeit of detail, that the stories themselves are lost. Lacking is what made them so exciting to me as a young reader: the adventure, the sense of mystery and divinity. I would search for a better introduction to mythology, such as D'Aulaire's, which is what I read as a child. ( )

Once we fared with the Argo, sailing
The ancient seas for the Fleece of Gold,
The distant gleam and the song prevailing
Over the dragon guards of old;

And we have wandered the Islands ringing
With the Aegean thunder still,
Plucked the unfaded blossoms springing
Yet for us on the Muses' hill

--After Euripides

Before Luke Skywalker, before Batman, before even King Arthur, there were the Greek heroes. Those guys knew how to fight! [Introduction]
If ever you are lucky enough to visit the beautiful land of Greece, you will find a country haunted by more than three thousand years of history and legend. [Chapter 1]
