Myths For All Time

Selected Greek Stories Retold (Trade Edition)
Patrick Hunt

Paperback ISBN: 978-1-5165-1856-2, 140 pages


In Myths for All Time, author Patrick Hunt retells twelve of the most well-known Greek myths, framing select tales with archaeological examinations and explorations of Greece.

As Hunt surveys the physical and moral landscapes of Greek antiquity, myths of old are given new life, from the magic of Midas’ golden touch to the dreaded opening of Pandora’s Box.

Each story is thoughtfully presented and discussed, connecting readers to the awe-inspiring ancient myths of the past and the equally remarkable human realities of today.

Readers of all ages will be dazzled and delighted by the vivid pictures of deities and enchanted beings these twelve stories will paint in their minds.

Patrick Hunt has been fascinated by Greek mythology since his early years. As a young graduate student at the American School of Classical Studies in Athens, he was thrilled to find evidence of the places described in myth still intact. He continued his studies, received his Ph.D. at University College London, University of London, and now teaches courses in humanities, the arts, ancient history, and archeology at Stanford University. He has authored twelve books, including Caravaggio, Rembrandt, Ten Discoveries that Rewrote History, Renaissance Visions, Myth and Art in Ekphrasis, and Critical Insights: Inferno.
