Pagan Mythology: Now Available!

This book is one of those happy titles that I enjoyed reading for its content in the informational and entertaining sense as much as for editing; it contains two pieces of content- pagan lore (Greek and Roman) first, and then a late 19th century analysis of the same in the sense of its connection to social and political topics- for example ideas such as tyranny, liberation, the way in which a royal court operates, and so forth. There are many examples given and the lore goes beyond the topical and is quite descriptive. The sections on Bacchus and Prometheus are particularly interesting.
