The Dictionary of Classical Mythology (Dictionary of Classical Mythology) Aug 10, 2006
I bought this for my classics class at university and it is fabulous!! The information helps me to learn the background of characters as I am new to this subject and it is great to have a helping hand! You can get some of these pages online but it is so much easier to flick through it in person, I totally recommend buying this.
This belongs on YOUR bookshelf! May 21, 2006
This is a fantastic reference guide. Grimal does a wonderful job of giving you a background on all sorts of mythological creatures, characters and other stuff. He doesn't give just a one or two sentence definition, but rather adjusts the length of the definition to the importance / significance of the subject matter. If you're looking to buy a classical dictionary, you need not look any further than this one!
