"A knowledge of classical mythology is  indispensable in understanding and appreciating much of  the great literature, sculpture, and painting of  both the ancients and the moderns. Unless we know  the marvelous stories of the deities and heroes of  the ancients, their great literature and art as  much later work down to the present day will remain  unintelligible. Through the centuries from  Chaucer, Spencer, Shakespeare, and Milton on, not only  the major writers but also hundreds of lesser  writers have retold the old tales or used them as a  point of departure for new interpretations in terms  of contemporary problems and psychology."--From  author's Introduction
