Bulfinch's Mythology
Thomas Bulfinch
Literature
Aug 7, 2018
Published in America in the middle of the nineteenth century, Thomas Bulfinch’s retellings of Greek, Roman, and medieval myths have been popular since their first appearance, and deservedly so: They offer a splendid, leisurely tour through the landscape of fable on which so much of our literature, art, and culture are built. Bulfinch succeeds in imparting the infectious wonder of the tales, planting seeds of imagination and insight that further reading, to say nothing of real life, will only nourish.

Edith Hamilton's "Mythology" is more entertaining, but Bullfinch is more encyclopedic.
