Edith Hamilton ´ 9 review

This is the second in series of six reviews focusing on books bout Greek mythology The books included in this comparative evaluation reBulfinch s Mythology Modern Library Paperback Edition 2004Mythology by Edith Hamilton originally published in 1942 Back Bay Books edition of 1998The Greek Myths by Robert Graves Penguin Books combined edition 1992Gods This Dark Business The Secret War Against Napoleon and Heroes of Ancient Greece by Gustav Schwab Pantheon Books copyright 1946Don t Know Much About Mythology by Kenneth C Davis Harper Collins 2005Myths of the Ancient Greeks by Richard P Martin New American Library 2003Goodreads is not really set up to handle comparative reviews smoothly so the discussion is splitcross the six book reviews Thus I ve tried to evaluate each book on its own particular merits Kilomètre zéroLe chemin du bonheur andlso give some idea of how it stacks up relative to the others I based the comparative evaluation on three main general criteria readability Shanti and the Magic Mandala accuracynd scope breadth The Burgess Bird Book for Children (Illustrated): Educational & Warmhearted Nature Stories for the Youngest and depth of coverage Ilso looked 100 Best Favorite Brand Name Recipes at how each book handled two particular examples the life of Herculesnd the story of Philomela Plaster Mold and Model Making and Procne More detailsbout the comparison can be found in the introduction to the first review Bulfinch evaluation One of the problems in this whole undertaking is that some of the books on the list Prince of Firestones The Krave of Everton arecknowledged to be classics which makes it harder to review them objectively You end up second guessing yourself maybe the classic status is causing you to be unduly deferential Or maybe you re overcompensating by being too meanOne thing became clear to me s I read these books Although the myths remain unchanged the way that we think bout them has evolved considerably over the last 150 years This is one reason why the bowdlerized myths presented to us by Bulfinch in which each story is rendered moribund by being stripped of Raphael's School of Athens (Masterpieces of Western Painting) all reference to sex violence orny hint of unpleasantness Mod A Very British Phenomenon are so unsatisfactory to 21st century reader Fortunately Edith Hamilton is no prude Her enthusiasm for the stories in Mythology is evident throughout the book At times she comes cross s The Origins of Muhammadan Jurisprudence a woman on mission her conviction The Villa: Escape to Sicily with the Number One Bestseller about the importance of these myths in Western culture is so passionate that she is determined to spread the message to broader The Pleasure Trap audience She is scrupulousbout identifying her source materials on this point Bulfinch is sadly dilettante than scholar She knows how to structure Ass Goblins of Auschwitz a narrative Her prose is clearnd reasonably 1984 (Nineteen Eighty-Four) accessible slightly dated but largely unburdened byrchaic language or B2B Digital Marketing Strategy: How to Use New Frameworks and Models to Achieve Growth academic jargon Mythology even comes with bunch of nifty illustrations done by someone with the improbable name of Steele Savage with Untitled Game On a great fondness for winged horsespparently Though her first book wasn t published until she was in her sixties her work A Promise of Protection Darkness Bites achieved great popular success Book of the Month Club selection in 1957 honorary citizenship of Athens highly laudatory obit in the New York Times when she finally died Dim Mak atge 95 what s not to loveTo sum up the points in its favor Hamilton does well on the three basic criteria The Simcity Planning Commission Handbook accessibility credibility extent of coverage the writing is clear she is commendably rigorousbout sourcing In the Beginning The Opening in the Game of Go Elementary Go Series Volume 1 and therere no glaring gaps in the extent of coverage Both of my test myths were covered well the story of Procne Cubed The Puzzle of Us All and Philomela particularly so The family trees for the major Godsnd important families of mortals Games and Puzzles to Keep Your Brain Young Page-A-Day Calendar for 2021 are really useful featureI wish that I liked Mythology better But I have no great love for this book That 3rd star was given only because I felt obliged to Diamond Solitaire (Peter Diamond Book 2) acknowledge her superiority to Bulfinch But for me the book hasn inescapable Reader s Digest feel to it Yeah the writing is clear It s deuate but never than that it never takes off even in those obvious places where you think IT MUST I KNOW THIS IS AN UNFAIR COMPARISON must I know this is n unfair comparison earlier in the month I had been reading Oscar Wilde s stories for children Money and Power: How Goldman Sachs Came to Rule the World as wells some of Kipling s poetry Zukai De Wakaru Sofutōea Kaihatsu No Subete: Kōzōka Shuhō Kara Obujiekuto Shikō Made and I kept waiting for Hamilton to dazzle me even just little bit But she never did And those nifty illustrations Cheesy beyond belief It s not just the over representation of winged steeds there s The Garden of Lost and Found: The NEW heart-breaking epic from the Sunday Times bestseller also way too much use of the

Accurate Results Using Keto Test Strips are invariably depicteds shrieking heavenward s they shake their evidently double jointed limbs in panic Finally it should be noted that Hamilton s retelling of
