What did mythological tales mean to the ancient Greeks, and how do they relate to us today? There was nothing simplistic about these enduring stories, and this collection of critical essays demonstrates their wide variety of interpretations. Jordi Pamias reflects on the reception of Greek myth through history, while H.S. Versnel considers the intersections of myth and ritual. Joseph Falaky Nagy finds Indo-European structure in how the tales are told, Christiane Sourvinou-Inwood examines vase paintings that illustrate them, and Robert A. Segal probes their psychoanalytic implications.
