In this companion to C. Kerenyi's classic The Gods of the Greeks, he presents the heroes of Greek mythology who preoccupied the minds of the ancient Greeks no less than the gods themselves. The compelling narrative is based throughout on original sources and complemented by illustrations from vase paintings and genealogical tables of celebrated and less celebrated mythical figures.
