it was amazing

The starting point for most when reading on Greek Mythology. She manages to incorporate many of the key stories, figures, etc as well as solid commentary on who is who and which myths really matter. Granted, this book was published in the mid-20th century, so many modern themes of Greek mythology are not presented (i.e. homosexuality, etc), but still, when studying Greek Mythology, this is the first source to consult.
