Reviews - What do customers think about The Dictionary of Classical Mythology?

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!
What a Great Book!  Apr 5, 2000
I recently became intersted in Greek and Roman mythology. This is a great book for anyone who wants to get more information on this great subject! If you want an awesome book and the gods and goddesses of the past, then buy this book!
