Myths by Lucia Impelluso
Book DescriptionFrom the same series as Abrams' successful "Saints and Angels" comes "Myths", richly illustrated with representations of these celestial heralds from ancient murals and pottery to the paintings of Gustav Klimt and Odilon Redon. Architect Lucia Impelluso has drawn from a variety of sources, including the plays of Euripiedes and Aeschylus, the epics of Homer and Virgil, Aesop's fables, Ovid's "Metamorphoses", Petrarch's sonnets and the works of Pindar, Sophocles, Plutarch, Pliny the Elder and Bocaccio. Beginning with stories of Earth's creation and its early rulers, the Titans, Impelluso recounts the major episodes and figures of Greek and Roman mythology, with sections on the gods of the sky, the sea, the earth and the underworld; the Fates and the Muses; monsters; human heroes; and the "Iliad", the "Odyssey" and the "Aeneid".
