Classic, well written, informative, beautifully researched, and with careful and delicious verbosity which tends to add to rather than detract from the subject matter. It's a very fine reference guide for people who already have a pretty good handle on Greek Mythology, and a pretty good guide for those who do not.
Look, there are better book out there. Even better books in this specific category; but I really think Bulfinch's Mythology
, of which this book is a part, is something everyone should own. It's like Bartlett’s Quotations
, man: You just have to be familiar with it. Well, in my opinion. I'm sort of a literary snob. Or a literate snob. Either way.
