Description - Greek Gods, Human Lives by Mary Lefkowitz

In this lively book, preeminent classicist Mary Lefkowitz brings fresh insights to the mythology of ancient Greece, demonstrating that these stories are not only entertaining but also offer crucial lessons about human experience.

Jasper Griffin, New York Review of Books "The excellent scholar Mary Lefkowitz briskly retells some of the classic myths, not only from Homer, Hesiod, and Greek tragedy, but also those to do with the voyage of the Argonauts and the adventures of Virgil's Aeneas." Peter Green, Los Angeles Times Book Review "From a super-competent, sometimes controversial, and always engaging professional classicist, a fascinating study." Tracy Lee Simmons, Washington Post
