Lively, exciting, dramatic versions of Greek myths from one of Britain's rising media stars

Most of us would like to know the Greek myths better than we do, and in this book Cambridge academic and BBC presenter Nigel Spivey re-tells the Greek myths as the spellbinding stories they are. In exciting prose he tells of Jason and the Argonauts and the travels of Odysseus, of Oedipus's crime and Orpheus's excursion into the underworld among many more.
