Item description for Mythilarity by A Coleman Gabriel Strange J...
The classical myths of Greece and Rome have been told almost as many times in modern-day writings as in their ancient form, sometimes using the original cast and settings, sometimes transposing the action to the present day. In addition, countless other works have been written which, while failing to acknowledge their indebtedness to the early writers, nevertheless have story-lines that can be traced directly back to Homer and his fellow writers. But these are not, by any means, the only myths; each culture has its own corpus of literature about their gods and heroes. Mythilarity retells some of these marvellous stories in a light-hearted fashion, not with a view to diminishing their value, (nobody could do that), but simply to offer another treatment that will appeal to readers whose sense of humour matches the author's, in the hope that it may introduce to the real versions some readers who might otherwise never have opened a book of mythology.
