Product Description

Review


"I have been using this text since it was first published, and I think it's the best we've ever had for our course in World Mythology."--Angela Ruediger, Harrisburg Area Community College


"Introduction to Mythology does a really good job of balancing mythology with actual stories. The book is well organized, the margin notes are exceptionally relevant and helpful to students, and the text also includes excellent tables, photos, and a timeline."--Bruce Peppard, El Camino College


"This is the best anthology of myth and folklore that I have yet found at the survey level. It demonstrates that the study of myth and folklore is a serious endeavor and an on-going conversation among great thinkers."--Cynthia Kimball, Portland Community College

Format: Paperback
The book is a confusing mess. It makes references but rarely contains the very myths it talks about, making it useless by itself.

Contains spelling errors, punctuation errors and is formatted horribly.

Same as 2nd edition Jan. 11 2014
By Marcus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Great book but I'm giving it 2 stars because it's nearly identical to the 2nd edition. Don't make your students pay an outrageous amount for the 3rd edition.

A great, inclusive text May 12 2014
By Laura - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My favorite part of this textbook was that it included mythos from a variety of different cultures across the world. It provided an inclusive look at varying mythologies, connecting them together with explanatory chapters guiding your reading of the passages. Very insightful and informative.

Book Information was Fine, Condition was Not March 17 2014
By Judy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book has half a page missing, the last person wrote in it and also used a highlighter on many pages. I am distracted by what the person wrote instead of looking for the page I need to be on. But the book is crisp, and .5 a page lighter!
