The world’s most enduring and celebrated myths unfold like never before in this extraordinary and expansive timechart. Six feet in length, the chart presents the major elements from ten of history’s most revered mythologies, exploring the particulars and peculiarities of each, while also highlighting what intriguing things they share. From the Egyptian Necropolis to the Aztec Empire, the Greek Pantheon to the Norse halls of Valhalla, and far beyond, World Mythology: A Timechart of Gods and Heroesexplores the foundations of the greatest stories ever told. Creation, destruction, gods, wars, heroes, birth, death, the afterlife, love, sex, art, and more—every civilization to ever rise and fall has had their own system for understanding the chaos and joy of life, and while they’re all uniquely fascinating, they’re also compellingly alike. The Egyptians’ great Atum, the Mesopotamians’ “raging storm” Enil, the Aztecs’ plumed serpant Quetzalcoatl, the Zoroastrians’ uncreated Ahura Mazda, the Greeks’ electric Zeus, the Dagda powerhouse of the Celts, the Norse’s almighty Odin, and the Incans’ omnipotent Viracocah all seem so very different at first blush, but every one is a father god. Each a creator and destroyer, fickle and powerful, well-loved and well-feared—they are individually enthralling, but when seen together, they reveal something universal about humankind. Immerse yourself in tales of gods and monsters, underworlds and paradises, heroes and battles, and more from around the globe and across time!

The Greek Myths contains some of the most thrilling, romantic, and unforgettable stories in all human history. From Achilles rampant on the fields of Troy, to the gods at sport on Mount Olympus; from Icarus flying too close to the sun, to the superhuman feats of Heracles, Theseus, and the wily Odysseus, these timeless tales exert an eternal fascination and inspiration that have endured for millennia and influenced cultures from ancient to modern. Beginning at the dawn of human civilization, when the Titan Prometheus stole fire from Zeus and offered mankind hope, the reader is immediately immersed in the majestic, magical, and mythical world of the Greek gods and heroes. As the tales unfold, renowned classicist Robin Waterfield creates a sweeping panorama of the romance, intrigues, heroism, humour, sensuality, and brutality of the Greek myths and legends. The terrible curse that plagued the royal houses of Mycenae and Thebes, Jason and the golden fleece, Perseus and the dread Gorgon, the wooden horse and the sack of Troy - these amazing stories have influenced art and literature from the Iron Age to the present day. And far from being just a treasure trove of timeless tales, The Greek Myths is a catalogue of Greek myth in art through the ages, and a notable work of literature in its own right.
