Synopsis

Myths in every culture explain our origins, the earths creation, gods and monsters, demons, the afterlife and the underworld. This compelling account, newly available in paperback, gathers together themes and stories from every culture, showing how myths share many common patterns, and how the human imagination is expressed in all its diversity. It asks the question: what do myths tell us about the human condition? Compiled by Christopher Dell, the bestselling author of books on monsters and on masterpieces of world art, Mythology is packed with authoritative text and an inspired selection of images, chosen from unusual and hidden sources while also including some of the best-known representations of myths from around the world.

Staff Choice

The lure of the subtitle was enough for me; there's something about 'our imagined worlds' that has an enduring appeal. I love the idea if shared stories and this book is full of some of the most shared of all. Split into categories such as the Supernatural Realm, Humankind, and Gifts from the Gods, each is introduced then abundantly illustrated. This is a book to dip in and out of letting your interest fall where it will in the knowledge that each page has much to offer.
