The Dictionary of Classical Mythology: The Indispensable Guide for All Students and Readers of Ancient and Modern Literature and Art by John Edward Zimmerman

A knowledge of classical mythology isindispensable in understanding and appreciating much ofthe great literature, sculpture, and painting ofboth the ancients and the moderns. Unless we knowthe marvelous stories of the deities and heroes ofthe ancients, their great literature and art asmuch later work down to the present day will remainunintelligible. Through the centuries fromChaucer, Spencer, Shakespeare, and Milton on, not onlythe major writers but also hundreds of lesserwriters have retold the old tales or used them as apoint of departure for new interpretations in termsof contemporary problems and psychology.--Fromauthors Introduction
