The gods of antiquity were far from ideal role models, and their jealous pride and vengeful egos wrought havoc on the world, while making for some truly thrilling stories. This collection offers more than 40 such tales—of Hercules and the Titans, of journeys to the underworld and battles between mighty warriors—all by master storytellers like Nathaniel Hawthorne, Francis Storr, and M. Mostyn Bird, with engraved illustrations inspired by art of the 16th to 19th centuries.
