Anže I haven't read the thing yet, but looking at the index it pretty much covers most of them, if not all.

This is the third in a series of six reviews focusing on books about Greek mythology. The books included in this comparative evaluation are:

Mythology by Edith Hamilton (originally published in 1942; Back Bay Books edition of 1998)
The Greek Myths by Robert Graves (Penguin Books combined edition, 1992)
Gods and Heroes of Ancient Greece by Gustav Schwab (Pantheon Books, copyright 1946)

I loved Gustav Schwab's Die schönsten Sagen des klassischen Altertums, his exquisite and extensive compilation of Greek mythology tales in German translation as a child (when my father read them aloud to my brother, my sister and me), and still greatly enjoy them today (having recently downloaded and reread them on my Kindle). Perhaps a bit dated in feel and scope, and definitely presenting a writing style that is indeed a bit convoluted and rather old-fashioned, Gustav Schwab still manages to c ...more

My very first book, the one that changed my life. This is the reason way i studyied ancient Greek and Latin for 4 years.
You know how you often get asked a silly question like ''If you had one book to take on a deserted island'', well, i'd choose this one. I don't even travel without it- it's my childhoof blanket, my teddy bear.
And one day, if i have children, they will too fall asleep listening to the stories from Olimpus, and about Trojan war.

Eines meiner größten Leseprojekte dieses Jahres ist mit Sicherheit diese Mythen-Zusammenfassung von Gustav Schwab in der hübschen Aufmachung von Gondrom gewesen. Zu lesen gibt es neben den bekanntesten Götter- und Heldenmythen auch (und vor allem) zusammenfassende und doch textnahe Prosaerzählungen der epischen Dichtungen Ilias und Odyssee Homers und Vergils Aeneis. Wer beginnen möchte, sich mit dem klassisch altertümlichen Mythos auseinanderzusetzen, erhält hier einen kompakten, leicht bekömmli ...more

Za sve one koji žele osvježiti svoje znanje o grčkim bogovima, herojima i njihovim djelima, ali svakako i za one koji se po prvi put susreću s antičkom mitologijom. Knjiga pisana još u 19. stoljeću, ali i dalje puna duha i jednostavno čitljiva, ali što je i najbitnije, koncizna, sa svim potrebnim informacijama sažetim u dirljive priče koje ne prikazuju samo grčka vjerovanja i mitove, nego i duh vremena u kojem su ove priče nastajale.

If you enjoy Greek Mythology this is definitely the book for you. Now I will have to admit, I did not read this book completely in one month, but that is what I loved about it. You can pick up this book and always find a new adventure to read. By the time you read them all you will be excited just to start all over again. "Gods and Heroes" consists of many collected stories of the great legends of Greek Mythology. Each story is an escape from reality. Whether you are on a long voyage home from t ...more

Ich kann mich errinnern, wie wir in der Schule damals davon lesen mussten.Damals wollte ich wie gewohnt eine Kurzfassung aus dem Internet heraus googeln.Aber dann las ich die ersten vier fünf Seiten, und ich hatte danach eine neue Leidenschaft entdeckt-Griechische Sagen.
Was mir aber auch ebenfalls aufgefallen war, ist dass einige Geschichten im Buch verblüffende Ähnlichkeiten mit einigen Geschichten aus dem Koran haben.Vielleicht war das auch ein Grund dafür, warum ich alles leidenschaftlich dur

Ova knjiga (knjige- mislim da ih je tri ili četiri) je zaslužna za moju ljubav prema svemu što ima veze sa mitovima, legendama i božanstvima. U vreme kada sam imala osam -devet godina, to je bilo neuporedivo nešto najzanimljivije što sam imala priliku pročitati.

i really enjoyed this, idk i felt that the writing kept me interested and ive learnt a lot about greek mythology and heroes.

It has taken me a while to get through this and there are... a lot of stories, i didn't read them all but a good portion, and i've taken it day by day but i loved it.

Great book!! It has 3 sections: miscellaneus gods and heroes stories, the Troy War and Odysseus. I would have put 5 stars to this book but the war theme in part 2 just wasn't for me. The author captures the stories in a very easy and enjoyable way to read.

On the inside front page of my copy of this book, I have just rediscovered the following inscription:

Fur Daithi Mac Giolla tSeanain

Dr. Karl-Gustav Gerold

Dublin, 2. Febr. 1972


Doctor Gerold's spidery inscription triggered a sudden, vivid recollection of a cold, wet February day in Dublin (is there any other kind?). My classmate Seamus Higgins and I had the day off class, but we weren't free to

Inhalt:
Der Titel ist Programm. Von den alten griechischen Sagen über Prometheus, Dädalus und Perseus bis zur Argonautensage mit all ihren Helden wie Herakles, Ödipus, Theseus und Troja.
All diese Abenteuer mit teils göttlichen Eingriffen sind in diesem einen Buch zu finden.

Meinung:
Ich persönlich bin begeistert von den alten Göttersagen über Helden, deren Herausforderungen und die göttlichen Spielchen, die mit ihnen getrieben wurden.

Daher konnte ich mir die Neuauflage von Gustav Schwabs „Die schön

It was an interesting book but there were parts that made me lose interest. The beginning of the book was very frustrating. The stories were too short and there were too many characters to remember. I got confused a lot because I could not tell who was who since the names were so long and some of the names were very similar in appearance.

However, I loved reading stories about Hercules, Troy and Odysseus. They were written in more detail than the previous stories and it was interesting seeing ho

Öncelikle İlya Yayınevinin bu serisini bitirdiğim için bu kitap bana ayrıca güzel geldi. Serinin geneli mitoloji tutkunları ve meraklıları için çok güzel ve geniş bilgiler sunmakta. Ancak genel anlatım biçimleri ve kitaplar arasında aslında bir seriye bağlı olmamaları gibi sebeplerden dolayı okuma heyecanı düşük olarak kalmakta.

Yunan Mitolojisi kitaplarına geldiğimizde ise Yunan Mitlerinin neredeyse tümü ile ilgili küçük hikâyeler şeklinde özet bilgilere ulaşılabilmesi açısından iyi bir kaynak o

L O N G . . . but can't do any better in laying out the history of the gods and heroes. I have always loved mythology and this book game me its rich history with great attention to detail. It got a little confusing at times however, going back and fourth in the book allowed me to figure out stories and people. Great book if you love mythology like myself and one that you can always go back to to revamp your knowledge.

I picked this up because I get frustrated that my version of Ovid has the Roman names of the Greek Gods, so I use this as reference to the Greek equivalences. My translation of Ovid has much greater detail and on the whole is a much better book, but sometimes, when I don't want to think too much, I reach to this one.

I actually stole this book from my high school in an act of pubescent rebellion. It's been in my book shelf ever since and every once in a while I read for a while.

The cruelty of the ancient gods always makes me smile. What's the fun in a kind-hearted, forgiving god?

All the most essential stories of Greek mythology: the Iliad, the Odyssey, the Aeneid, plus several smaller ones, such as Heracles, the Argonauts, and many others, compiled into a large volume. Ideal for a ten-year-old kid to get lost in.

Schwab hat die alten Schinken der Antike neu aufbereitet, so dass ein jeder sie gut lesen kann. Ein Glück, denn die Sagen des Altertums sind die vermutlich wunderbarsten Geschichte, die je produziert wurden.

I just picked through this as supplementary material to the other research I’m doing. It’s certainly old-fashioned, dry, and fairly silly; however, I can definitely see a wealth of knowledge in this 700-some page book. Maybe I’ll read the rest later, when I don’t have quite so much to do.

Handig 'naslagwerkje' als je weer eens een keertje vergeten bent welke Griekse god nu weer met wie precies getrouwd was en waar dat buitenechtelijk kind dan weeral vandaan kwam...

A concise collection of episodes from greek mythology. The english prose was kind of hard to understand but it makes you understand some of the seemingly unrelated episodes.
