Brewer's Book of Myth and Legend

Book - 1992
Rate this:
Extracts from Brewer's 1870 Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, identifying people, places, events, and themes from mythology-- mostly classical, but with a smattering from other European and non-European traditions. Its interest today is as much the peculiar Victorian view of mythology than the primary information. Unlike many such dictionaries, however, it does indicate the pronunciation of foreign names. No bibliography. Acidic paper. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
Publisher: London ; New York : Cassell, 1992
ISBN: 9780304340842
