From the man-eating Minotaur to the deathless Phoenix, and from the fearsome Medusa to the mysterious Sphinx, the monsters of legend have a picturesque appeal that not even the greatest heroes can match. Described in short texts by such authors as Ovid, John Dryden, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Thomas Bulfinch, here are unicorns and sirens, satyrs and dragons, Pegasus and the Nemean Lion; hardly ancient but undeniably classic, Lewis Carroll's Jabberwocky appears here as well. Reproduced in color, here too are artistic depictions of this bestiary by Botticelli, Tiepolo, Peter Paul Reubens, Albrecht Dürer, William Blake, Edward Burne-Jones, and G.F. Watts.
