The classical Greek intellectual tradition pervades nearly every aspect of our modern Western civilization, from literature and art to architecture and government. Recognizing that the Greek myths are timeless stories of love, conflict, fantasy, and revenge, John Spurling—a winner of the Walter Scott Prize for Historical Fiction for The Ten Thousand Things—re-imagines these thrilling, often brutal ancient tales for contemporary readers, setting them amid the dazzling scenery of the Peloponnese while adding believable dialogue and characterizations to the legends of Theseus and the Minotaur, Perseus and the Gorgon, the murder of Agamemnon, and the 12 labors of Hercules.
