"From Athena to Zorya, a clever compendium of myths from ancient Greece and around the world." "From classic literature and Jungian psychology to pop lyrics and Nike sneakers, mythology informs every aspect of our culture and thought. These timeless myths tell surprisingly modern-sounding tales of love and devotion - and of carnage, adultery, and incest. Whether they come from a Native American, Asian, African, or Greek and Roman tradition, they offer endless revelations and insights into the human psyche."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
