Mythology
 
Anyone know any good books about mythology...gods & mortals?

Dr. Simon Hurt 04-03-2010 02:28 PM

which system of mythology specifically?

the library of greek mythology by apollodorus (translated of course) is a good primer for that, for egypitan mythology i have the oxford essential guide to egyptian mythology as well as 'the complete gods and godesses of ancient egypt'...i have a book of norse legends somewhere but i don't remember the name of it

Dr. Simon Hurt 04-03-2010 06:49 PM

Homer's Iliad and Odyssey is a must read when talking about greek mythology.

Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, Hesiod's Theogony, and his Works and Days, The Bibliotheca, and the Argonautica. The Aeneid by Virgil is required to complete the Trojan Trilogy.

As far as Egyptian I don't think there are any translations of primary documents that compare to the Greek ones I mentioned. Most of the non fiction stuff on I've come across is either dry and boring or biased against the Egyptians (aka written a about a hundred years ago.)

Norse Gods, check the The Prose Edda, The Poetic Edda, Gesta Danorum, Ynglinga saga, and the Sagas. Then read the Lord of the Rings and Silmarillion by J R R Tolkien... You'll deja vu like a mother fucker.
