Greek Mythology: Captivating Stories of the Ancient Olympians and Titans (Heroes and Gods, Ancient Myths) (English Edition) Format Kindle
Captivating Stories of the Ancient Olympians and Titans
Did you know that Zeus loved many women, both goddesses and mortals?
Did you know that he turned himself into golden rain for one damsel who was locked away in a tower, and turned himself into a swan for another beauty?
Did you know that he kidnapped one young princess which led to her brother founding the city of Thebes?
And did you know that, to protect his own power, Zeus swallowed his first wife, just as Cronus had swallowed his own children in a previous age?
Greek myth is full of fascinating tales of Titans and Olympian gods. Some of it makes us wonder if there might be some hint of truth behind those stories, no matter how outrageous they may sound. What parts of those stories were merely symbolic and what parts were literal?
This book contains a brief, but unconventional look at the Titans and Olympian gods of Greek mythology. Brief, because a thorough treatment of these legendary super beings could take thousands of pages. Unconventional, because digging for truth is far more interesting than reciting old stories which have little relevance to us today. Attempting to reveal some semblance of truth brings the stories to life. It gives them relevance to our modern world. Here, we will look at many of the more fascinating stories which kept the Greek mortals entertained for hundreds of years. After all, they didn’t have iPhones and computer tablets.

- The Nature of Myth
- Primordial Beings and Titans

This is a most interesting read to catch up on your Greek mythology knowledge. There is a lot of information in this short book of 70 pages. One interesting entry that particularly caught my eye -
"Some scholars feel that centaurs were a creation of the active imaginations of primitive Eurasians who had never before seen men on horseback. So, Chiron and others like him may well have been cavalrymen, possibly of old Atlantis, if the island ever existed."
It is a lovely read and good learning publication for schools and colleges. Chapter 7, gives a good insight into the Olympian Gods and what they represent. I got this copy free as I have previously purchased some others in a series. Please watch out for these short read books as they are wonderful value for money and also several copies are free if you watch out for promotions.
Lots to discuss in such a short book, as intriguing as confusing. It could have definitely be better.
