Abstract

Here retold in all their original dramatic power are some of the most exciting and influential of all world myths, drawn from a fascinating range of ancient cultures. Epic struggles and heroic adventures, passionate jealousies and psychological deceptions, comic mistakes and tragic destinies—these fabulous tales are all part of our common legendary past. This book is a compilation edition of five titles from the successful Legendary Past series. Each author describes the cultural background, written sources, and continuing legacy of the major myths, illustrated throughout by archaeological and artistic evidence. The included titles are: Mesopotamian Myths by Henrietta McCall, British Museum Persian Myths by Vesta Sarkhosh Curtis, British Museum Chinese Myths by Anne Birrell, University of Cambridge Aztec and Maya Myths by Karl Taube, University of California, Riverside Inca Myths by Gary Urton, Harvard University Linking these supernatural worlds is a new introduction from the award-winning writer Felipe Fernández-Armesto.

Abstract

Varner brings together a medley of stories, myths, and folklore, sharing a fascination and respect for humankind's early and contemporary cultures and wondering at similarities across the board. Here, he focuses on ""Little People"" and giants, animals and were-creatures, and the odd, helpful or threatening ways imputed to our earthly companions including dogs and cats, bats and spiders, and the stories people have told each other about them since time immemorial.
