The six greek myths (Pandora, Persephone, Orpheus, Pygmalion, Narcissus, and Psyche)are retold in beautiful, modern English prose. While I have been required to read various Greek myths over my years in school, this is the first time that they seem to make sense and have something to say about life. Very enjoyable reading. My five-year old son even enjoyed them as bedtimes stories.
